Mark Wahlberg stars as a strong, laconic NYPD detective who's been demoted to working cold cases; the coldest of them—the murder of his wife and child three years earlier—begins to warm up once he meets a slinky Russian party girl (Olga Kurylenko) with a taste for a powerful new street drug. Based on a popular video game, this psychological thriller seems promising initially, bolstered by Jonathan Sela's evocative camerawork, Andrew Stearn's art direction, and supporting performances by Ludacris, Chris O'Donnell, Kate Burton, and Beau Bridges. But their efforts are ultimately defeated by a thin screenplay and the derivative direction of Wachowski wannabe John Moore. PG-13, 100 min.
