Charlie Sheen (... excuse me, Charles Sheen), plays some burnt out detective who settles down in Scotland (I think). Well, some guy thinks it'll be neat to fax an obituary of his intended victim. So, Sheen goes and helps the cops, who -- gosh! -- can't figure out how to draw a straight line without his help.

The usual stuff happens. They think they have him, but wait, they don't. They almost catch him due to some amazing insight by Sheen's character. Some tragic stuff happens to a good friend/companion/lover (I don't want to spoil, hence being ambiguous). Climactic scene with protagonist and antagonist.

The movie offered nothing special, nothing novel. They didn't dig into Sheen's character, and marginally dealt with the killer's character. No explanation of why he even bothered to fax in his murders.

Bottom line, almost average movie, so, why not watch something average instead, or above average like, Insomnia. As for this movie, 4/10 for me.
