Cleaner (2007)

posted in: Reviews | 0

Cleaner is a 2007 film about a murder and a framed man.

10 out of 10 stars.  Well crafted film about a love affair gone awry and a friendship used to cover the evidence.

Tom Cutler is a retired cop and crime scene cleaner.  He cleans a crime scene and discovers too late that the cops didn’t send him there.  The killer did.  An hour and a half later, the trail leads back to his ex-partner Eddie, who was having an affair with the victim’s wife.  He got her pregnant so she had an abortion.  He blamed her husband for the abortion, so he killed him.

I could totally believe this midlife crisis cliche was capable of murder.  He had no life and no family other than twenty plus years as a cop.  But using his ex-partner to cover the crime up was just cruel.

10 out of 10 stars.  Very watchable.  Samuel L. Jackson was excellent.  Ed Harris was kind of pathetic, but that was the role. 🙂
