Out of Time (2003, USA) C-105m. SCOPE *** D: Carl Franklin. Starring Denzel Washington, Eva Mendes, Sanaa Lathan, Dean Cain, John Billingsley, Robert Baker, Terry Loughlin, Nora Dunn. Film noir-like tale set in Florida, where chief-of-police Washington has an affair with sexy Lathan, the wife of ex-football pro Cain. He is going through a divorce with Mendes, which complicates everything when she starts investigating on a murder case, where he is the prime suspect. Improbable but enjoyable complications, played to the hilt by a fine cast.
