Thriller alambicado, con muchos pliegues y repliegues. Anthony Waller, especializado en thriller (Testigo mudo) y cine de terror variado (Un hombre lobo americano en París, El pequeño vampiro), trata de rompernos el saque. En el reparto, destaca el siempre eficaz Bill Pullman.
Callum Crane is in line for appointment to the federal bench during the same week he forces himself, while drunk, on a new secretary at his office who has firmly said no to him. It's also the same week Nathan Corrigan (a young, callow ex-con) goes to the city to meet his biological father, the same Callum Crane. They meet and before Nathan can tell Crane who he is, Crane offers him money to kill the secretary, who has threatened to go to the police. Nathan takes an envelop of cash and the woman's photo, tells friends about it, and throws away the envelop. One of the friends, who needs money, retrieves the envelop and sets out to kill the woman. Can Nathan stop the crime?
Correctas actuaciones en un thriller que nos lleva por caminos dificiles de seguir. Una producción correcta pero que se olvida pronto. El Coleccionista.
