Prime example of a film that should have been much better than what is presented on-screen. The film tries to be far too ambitious than what it actually is, and… More

A guilty pleasure as Keanu Reeves plays a noirish detective who also sidelines on paranormal cases. The angel Gabriel (a wonderful Swinton) is surprisingly up… More
