  • 4 stars "Old school cops and bank robbers movie. Kidman is strong as a burnt out alcoholic cop who made bad choices. She looks rough, but in the flashbacks to 17 years earlier, she looks better than any 51 year-old could and should. I found the film riveting...………...84/ bob"
  • 3 stars "Nicole kidman, great actress, but in this movie , not enough meat and potatoes, background of the main character was explained in just bits and pieces throughout the film as opposed to showing viewers , a short recall of events and her career prior to going undercover ... she appears so weak and under nourished at beginning of movie , how could a police captain let this agent be on duty , should have been sent to rehab first, to show us how the character was prior to her undercover role"
  • 3 stars "It wasn't as good as expected. It was slow, purposeless much of the time. A lot of information left out that might have made Kidman's character more authentic and the movie more interesting."
