In an airport waiting room, a man in a wheelchair tells a stranger a story about a fixed horse race in 1979 that resulted in a family's deaths. In Manhattan, two bookies and the son of a Mob boss die. A young man just out of the shower answers the door to a neighbour woman and explains that he's visiting, has had a bad week, including being mugged, and doesn't know where his pal, who lives there, is. The neighbour is chatty; she's a coroner. Two thugs arrive and, believing the visitor to be the guy who lives there, take him to see the boss with the dead son, who tells him to kill the son of his Mob rival. Mistaken identity? What connects the threads? Cops are watching.
Solid performances can not save this movie from becoming nothing more than an mediocre, predictable thriller; in fact, the acting seems to emphasise the lack of thought put into the script. However, what it lacks in a decent plot, it makes up in sheer coolness and style. The characters are enthralling, the majority of the dialogue (especially between the minor characters) is funny when it needs to be, and there is barely a single boring moment. It would be wrong to call this film brainless, but the ending is as predictable as they come, and because the film builds up to the 'twist' for so long you may be left feeling very disappointed.
this is a very fun, very clever flick starring some serious holly wood heavy weights like bruce willis, morgan freeman, lucy liu and josh harnett. josh harnett is supposedly mistaken for some one, and unfortunately that places him in a great deal of danger. what follows is 100 minutes of heart pumping action. not to be missed
