Review

This supposedly high-tech mystery thriller from 2007 wants to look modern, be clever and feel flashy, but ends up as a disjointed and oddly paced misfire. Halle Berry plays a news reporter who goes undercover to investigate a suspected murder / sex scandal involving a superrich advertising executive (Bruce Willis). The script by Jon Bokenkamp may seem clever at first, mainly because director James Foley (the man behind the wonderful Glengarry Glen Ross) keeps everything moving quickly. But when it's time to add it all up, nothing really fits, and the ending is an abrupt, preposterous mess which will leave you feel cheated.
