A Samuel L. Jackson movie that most people probably don’t even remember has taken over Netflix today, and no one seems to know why.
In the US at least, Cleaner is sitting at #2 on the most-watched films list, as the mystery thriller continues to rack up views. Plot-wise, it follows “single father and former cop Tom Cutler, who has an unusual occupation: he cleans up death scenes. But when he’s called in to sterilize a wealthy suburban residence after a brutal shooting, Cutler is shocked to learn he may have unknowingly erased crucial evidence, entangling himself in a dirty criminal cover-up.”
The 2007 pic also stars Ed Harris and Eva Mendes and is a fun little thriller that offers up enough twists and turns to keep you hooked. It’s fairly unmemorable as far as Samuel L. Jackson efforts go and rarely rises above mediocrity, but if you’re a fan of the actor and/or genre, it’s a decent way to kill a few hours.
