Victor (Colin Farrell) is a mole in Alphonse's (Terrence Howard) crime organization. His criminal activity has been seen by Beatrice (Noomi Rapace) who lives in an apartment across from his. Her face has been disfigured from an automobile accident and for some reason she doesn't cover it with make-up. Beatrice blackmails Victor into killing the drunk driver who hit her car. She gets involved in his life.
The film has all the elements of a crime thriller, but moves at a slower pace with less action scenes. The film tries to build relationships and character, but Colin Farrell really wasn't up for the gig while the support cast did fine. Colin Farrell has done better.
