Totally forgettable movie.  I actually liked the fact race was never mentioned, but I don't think it plays a role in the story AT ALL.   Perhaps that's a naive and unrealistic move on the part of the filmmakers, but I thought it was refreshing.  This was a trashy thriller, not a civil rights drama, and it's nice to see a movie that COULD involve racial issues but doesn't.

The only other worthwhile plot element was the fact that Derek married a former secretary.  That helped justify some of his behaviors, whereas without that twist, the story would've become even more ridiculous than it is.
And I agree Elba's a good actor.  Knowles and Larter?  Well, they look good, at least!
