Thought it was a pretty good movie. A lot of twists and turns, but it all makes sense in the end. Wahlberg is at his best, though Crowe has def. been better !

I wish I could give this disaster to my brain a negative slew of stars. It poses itself as a noir and sure the premise is there but the film falls flat on its face right out of the gate. The dialogue is petty and dull and the sub plots immature. Some people should get a new day job.

It's pretty trashy and sometimes stupid. But there was never a moment when I wasn't entertained on one level or another. Full Review

Nothing clicks, nothing resonates, everything's broken. Full Review

USA Today
It tries to be a moody thriller, but cliched dialogue and too many coincidences make for a predictable and hackneyed film. Full Review

New York Daily News
There is no urgency, and little honesty, to the convoluted goings-on unfolding here. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
The only reason to see this dreary parade of deception and venality is Mark Wahlberg's performance as a disgraced ex-cop caught up in the thick of menacing events he can't understand. It's striking how this tightly focused actor can find his own firmly grounded reality in the falsest of surroundings. Full Review
