The Cleaner is a slowed paced drama filled with details. A story about broken characters struggling to make the best under dire circumstances. A pretty unusual cinematic experience. Something we don't get to see that often.

Movie Nation

A quietly-compelling mystery set in a milieu that's grittier than most of the characters living in it are willing to admit, struggling people who are colorful, believable and (mostly) relatable.

A knucklehead indie noir that's not too good but avoids being bad.

It's not bad. It's not great, but has some good acting and is entertaining.

The Cleaner reveals once again that solid acting, relatable characters, and a good story can do so much more on a limited budget than a blockbuster movie with a weak story and cliched characters.
