An ex-cop, played by Mark Wahlberg, is hired to tail the wife of the New York mayor (Russell Crowe). Scandal! Corruption! A title that screams film noir, while sounding slightly like a mistranslation from another language! Good cast, to be sure: In addition to Wahlberg and Crowe, it includes Catherine Zeta-Jones, Barry Pepper and the ultrareliable Jeffrey Wright.
