But he is sole beneficiary on the female victim's life insurance claim. So, in a frantic race for time, Matt has to cover up all his tracks before the find out. Unfortunately, a lot of people were bored with this because it had so little action. This is one of the few Denzel Washington movies that flopped. Denzel Washington plays Matt Whitlock, a cop in a small Florida town. It hadn't gotten extremely good reviews although most of them were at least positive , and that lowered my expectations a bit.
Nobody knew they were having an affair because she was a married woman and they were keeping their romantic adventures secret. Itseems real, with likable characters portrayed by a strong cast, includingJohn Billinglsey as Chae, Matt's best friend who shows up when he's neededthe most. Admittedly the first half hour is rather slow. But I actually considered Matt's friend Chae John Billingsley to bethe best character in the movie; I mean, some of those monologues wereso great. She made Matt her beneficiary after being diagnosed with cancer--but now she's been discovered dead in a fire with her husband, the money gone, and all the evidence points--as I said before--to him.
But I actually considered Matt's friend Chae John Billingsley to be the best character in the movie; I mean, some of those monologues were so great. Since she's dying of cancer, she's made him the beneficiary ofher will. Despite a solid and sexy cast, this looked too much like an average crime thriller to bother me to go to the cinema. I can't remember a really good film noir being made in quite some time. Matt is the police chief of a small town in Florida. I should identify that the movie has nothing to do with the Rolling Stones' song.
Matt's been having an affair with Ann Merai Harrison, a woman who's separated from her husband Chris and who says that she has cancer. I almost came close to giving the film a negative review. His acting is still fine, but the film as a whole wasn't up to Washington's standards. Matt Lee Whitlock is the chief of police in a town in Florida. Matt's been having an affair with Ann Merai Harrison, a woman who's separated from her abusive husband, Chris, and who says that she has cancer.
The movie's real strength lies in the twists and turns that they throw in from time to time. And if I may say so,Eva Mendes looked mighty fine in some of those outfits! And as if things couldn't get worse, the D. But when she and her husband die in a fire, all evidencepoints to Matt you'll understand what I mean if you see the movie. I had finally come toexpect a fairly decent thriller with illogical plot holes and a boringpace. So arises the quandary of how he's going to solve the case and clear his name before it's too late, especially given that his ex-wife Alex Eva Mendes is absolutely intent on solving the case.
Washington may well be slumming it here he criticised it because he said all he did was run but he holds the attention really well.

Matthias decides he is going to find romance and hot love somewhereelse and finds a gal who really spins of web of destruction all aroundhim and causes his life to become one big mess and both Matthias andhis wife really start having problems they never dreamed would everhappen. Re-rated from a mild R after a few scene cuts. So, ina frantic race for time, Matt has to cover up all his tracks before the findout.

Matt Whitlock Denzel Washington is running out of time. But there's one thing for certain--it's a lot cleverer than most films of its kind. Re-rated from a mild R after a few scene cuts. I think that probably the coolest scene is thewhole sequence in the police station about halfway through the movie; Iwould have never imagined any movie having a whole sequence like that! Admittedly the first half hour is rather slow. All in all, it's not any kind of masterpiece. She made Matt her beneficiary after being diagnosed withcancer--but now she's been discovered dead in a fire with her husband, themoney gone, and all the evidence points--as I said before--to him.
