no surprises here

Samuel L. Jackson, Ed Haris, Eva Mendes, and Luis Guzman star in "Cleaner" from 2007, directed by Renny Harlin and written by Matthew Aldrich.

Tom Carver (Jackson) is a widower and ex-cop raising his daughter (Keke Palmer). Since leaving the department, his new job is that of Cleaner- meaning he cleans up crime scenes and leaves the area spotless.

One day he's called to an address in a very good neighborhood. No one is home, but there is a note where to find a key. The scene is a mess - covered with blood everywhere. He does his usual excellent job of cleaning and sterilizing the premises. Then he learns that he may have destroyed evidence and might have involved himself in a cover up.

This film was well acted but easy to figure out. The script really needed to be tightened up. It was not a bad movie. Just nothing special about it.

would be decent film with great big plot hole

I will steal a phrase from another IMDb user and tell you straight away, this is a classic example of a film script that could use a few re- writes.

Samuel L Jackson is a crime scene cleaner (and also retired policeman) who one day goes to clean a site, and forgets to put back the house key. Next day he goes to the house, and he finds the people living there did not know a crime was committed there the previous day. Is someone trying to set him up?


Jackson finds almost immediately that his cleanup request was not legit; someone called in giving a fake name, and he just went through the procedure.

Now, later in the film, he finds a MacGuffin (generic item of interest in a film's plot) which prevents him from going straight to the police. But, BEFORE he finds the MacGuffin, he's just an honest ex-policeman that finds someone has forged police papers.

You would think he'd go straight to the police to give them all the evidence he has, non?

But no, he doesn't. He needs to get himself tangled up in the plot for no reason, other than getting the film to move forward. If he did the one reasonable and most likely action, then the film would end right there and then.

Aside from this horrible plot hole, the film isn't bad. There is a cringy sub-plot involving his young daughter and deceased wife, but it's completely extraneous to the story.

The film is rather well directed and Jackson puts in a really good performance, be he is put down by both Eva Mendez being wooden and horrible as always (i cannot fathom how this person can be called an actress), and by the Bad Guy being the same Bad Guy in every role he plays, totally giving away the ending.

It's not a good film. I would not recommend this if not as a negative example to people wanting to write for film.

5/10 - watchable but completely ruined by the mistakes.

Bland thriller with a TV movie feel

Renny Harlin is a director whose talent seems to have diminished with every film he's made in the last twenty years. He first came to my attention with DIE HARD 2, one of my favourite movies all time, and then delivered a couple more entertaining movies during the 1990s (namely, the ones without Geena Davis: CLIFFHANGER and DEEP BLUE SEA). Since then, his once solid talent seems to be floundering: he made what might be Stallone's worst ever movie, DRIVEN, and then one of the worst films I've seen in a good while: 2006's THE COVENANT. CLEANER is his next film after that, and the good news is that it's better than its predecessor, but still a disappointing outing.

The problem is that, despite a fine cast, this film looks and feels like a TV movie. The scripting is the worst thing about it, a sub-standard effort heavily derived from the likes of CSI. Although it's meant to be a thriller, this is a film utterly devoid of thrills; only the strength of the acting kept me watching. There's one good twist at the outset and then everything plays out in a conventional, seen-it-all-before way. The worst thing is the villain reveal, which is so completely expected it's actually wince-inducing, along with the whole reason for that person being the villain as well.

Samuel L Jackson is a fine actor who seems to be mired in sub-standard material lately (SNAKES ON A PLANE anyone?). He gives a typically fine performance here, but his considerable talents are wasted. The same goes for Ed Harris, saddled with a nothing role. I was delighted to see Luis Guzman pop up in a larger role than he's usually given, and he's great too, although again wasted. Robert Forster delivers a cameo but the female lead is given to the horrendous Eva Mendes who never convinces for a second. This cold actress never ignites the screen and she's very poor here – although not quite as bad as she is in GHOST RIDER.

Aside from the grisly death clean-up scenes (some of which left me feeling distinctly sickened) there's absolutely nothing to remember about this film – it's just another run-of-the-mill outing and nothing to get excited about.
