'The Big Bang'


Antonio Banderas goes the film-noir route in this melodrama, which puts his private eye character on the trail of a missing woman who allegedly possesses a fortune in diamonds.

The sleuth questions everyone from a secretive actor ("Dawson's Creek" alum James Van Der Beek) to a waitress (Autumn Reeser, "No Ordinary Family") who can hold her own against a rocket scientist. Thomas Kretschmann ("Wanted"), Snoop Dogg, Sam Elliott and Delroy Lindo also appear for director Tony Krantz, who was one of the producers of the series "24." DVD extras: theatrical trailer; "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by cast and crew; extended scenes. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
