Underrated
Verified purchase
I had never heard of this film. I never saw any ads for it in the cinema. I see now, that is was a critical and commercial mega-flop. Which is pretty strange. The film is well written, directed, acted. It has a good plot and excellent characterization. It has a stellar cast of Sam Jackson (in my opinion one of Americas top 10 male actors of the modern age), Eve Mendez provides eye candy, Ed Harris is terrific as the lead's ex partner turned baddie. I have no idea why people hate this film as much as they do?

I saw it late at night on C5, a channel I barely flick to. I saw Sam Jackson and thought, I'll give this a go. I then enjoyed it very much. Brought it on DVD and watched it twice in as many weeks and still enjoyed it a lot. So I am puzzled as to why so many don't like it? But then I don't like Mr Browns Boys or Jim Davidson and they sell so many DVDs they live in mansions. It has a 6.1 on IMDB which I use as a fairly good indicator generally, usually IMDB is either a bit high or a big low for me but if you like Sam Jackson and you want a decent couple of hours get this.

Slow-burning, satisfying film
Verified purchase
This is a film of dramatic tension and convincing performances from a distinguished cast. It's a slow-burn which accounts for US critics not liking it too much. However, as long as you're not looking for car chases and fire-fights with automatic weapons you will enjoy it. Human strengths and frailties are explored and this adds to the depth of the story. It's very poignant in places and anybody who has raised a kid will have a particular empathy. The quality of the entire production makes you sorry when it's over. Highly recommended.

Scammed with subtitles
Verified purchase
This product was advertised as having subtitles.
My mother is hard of hearing so if we watch a movie its a requirement, I would not rent a movie if it has no subtitles.
I rent it, only to find that in fact there are no subtitles even though it is advertised otherwise.
I can't get a refund because I already started watching.
I want to file a compaint and oh look and behold all of a sudden there are no more subtitles advertised.
I find Prime Video more and more a scam as most movies simply don't have subtitles. I guess just purchasing the rights for a movie and then don't do anything else to guarantee a good product is not in the business model. I won't be renting any more movies from now.

Had to have this in our collection
Verified purchase
We saw this on TV some time ago - but as its not been shown in recent times, as far as we have noticed, had to get this DVD. It's a good, well written plot that keeps you guessing and with Samuel L Jackson heading the cast with Ed Harris not far off plus Renny Harlan directing, its a cracking mystery film. 5 Stars

Small... BUT... perfectly formed!
Verified purchase
"Cleaner" is a polished little gem of a b-movie noir thriller and a surprise entry on the cv of director Renny Harlin who steps away from the slam bang action world to focus on a more character driven low key thriller.

Working with a small cast of characters (all played to the hilt by a top notch bunch of faces) and keeping the story tight as a drum (not one of the 86 minutes of the running time are wasted) Harlin shows that there is more to him than blowing stuff up... Ok so the ending is a little too Hollywood but that to me is just a minor quibble.

The bad news is that the dvd don't do the film justice on the presentation front, surely the commentry from the American disc could have been ported over and why is the film presented in 1.85:1 widescreen when it was shot in 2.40:1???

Ahh well at least the film makes up for these small glitches!

Good film with a decent plot and excellent acting.
Verified purchase
Excellent. Samuel L Jackson plays an ex-cop who now owns a crime-scene cleaning business and is being framed for a murder. Payed to perfection and the story has some interesting twists. Really enjoyed this one.

Riveting viewing with an all-star excellent cast and a superb storyline. Highly recommended.
Verified purchase
Riveting viewing featuring a fantastic cast and storyline, this is one film that's sure to entertain you to the hilt. It's brilliant, and easily well deserving of five stars. I recommend it very much to other viewers; especially if you are all fans of these high calibre, excellent actors and actresses.
