The audience is not in on the whole story from the start; but, honestly, who could tell? The film takes place over one day, jumps in and out of flashbacks, and is so addled that you can barely notice that you’re being let in on a secret at the end. What should have been a spectacular shock ending was really just some more storyline being thrown in. When all is revealed, it’s too late; the film is over, and you can’t really care. You don’t understand McCanick’s motives until the end, and therefore you can’t understand or invest interest in his actions throughout the story. You’re never sure if he’s the guy you want to root for.
