Goofs

At the end, Ed Harris is pointing his gun at Samuel Jackson with the trigger in the rearward position, something that only happens when the double action/single action Beretta is cocked. The trigger should be at rest, in the forward position. When agitated, Ed cocks the hammer and we see that the trigger is still in the rearward position. Only at cocking should the trigger have gone from forward position to rear position. See more »

Finally a good movie from Renny Harlin
24 August 2008 | by azraelizSee all my reviews

I had very low expectations for this movie. Renny Harlin hasn't made a decent movie in many years so I expected the usual crap, but i was very surprised. It had good plot, very nice acting and was well made. Samuel L. Jackson plays a retired police officer who has a "Cleaning company". He cleans up murder scenes and other scenes of death. One day he does a job in a mansion and gets trapped in a web of deceit.

The Movie unfolds in a low key, unusual for Renny, which usually has lot of noise and action in his movies :) It has lot of blood though(not surprising given the title...) So basically this movie is a good way to spent hour and half. Hopefully Renny boy is out of the slums....
