The film starts as a traditional crime drama. It makes you think it has nothing new. The film has a hard time figuring out what it is with a mixture of crime, politics, and sexism. None of the storylines are fleshed out. The main story that I think should have been fleshed out is the Rawlings relationship. That story isn’t as developed as it should be; it also should have been the focus of the film – not the politics or crime. The actors are all wonderful; although, they don’t give Neeson much character development. It’s a story that twists and turns as it unfolds, and it doesn’t really come together until the second act, making this film worth a watch.
