Low-key thriller set in an unnamed Latin American country where a police detective (Javier Bardem), undeterred by the political corruption around him, relentlessly tries to capture the leader of a terrorist organization causing widespread chaos, while at the same time drawn to his daughter's elusive ballet teacher (Laura Morante). Directed with subtle efficiency by John Malkovich, the drama explores one man's ongoing struggle with personal as well as professional integrity within the framework of a taut police procedural. Some intense violence with gore, flash of nudity and fleeting sexual reference, intermittent rough language and occasional profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
