Renny Harlin is one of those funny directors in which you never know what you'll get from one of his films. With CLEANER we are given Samuel L. Jackson NOT playing the angry black man for a change but a damaged ex cop with a past he laments and a job which entails cleaning up after people who have taken a bogus mortgage out on the proverbial farm. As a thriller it works well enough and I gather fans of DEXTER will enjoy it even if the ending seems a tad rushed and taked on. Certainly not one of the best showings from Ed Harris but Eva Mendes kind of makes up for that. Luis Guzman has a few moments and there are visual elements which boost this one up to slightly above average.
