Terrence Howard's cop is tasked with talking down a potential jumper, Gavin (Charlie Hunnam), from a tall building in Baton Rouge.

"You don't have to do this," he pleads. However, actually, young Gavin does or his lover, Shana (Liv Tyler), will be murdered by her insanely jealous, Bible-thumping husband (Patrick Wilson, convincingly unhinged). Steven Soderbergh, who also started out in Baton Rouge with Sex, Lies and Videotape, did a much better job on the subject of infidelity, but Chapman's very verbose psychological thriller makes a valiant attempt to make points about faith and deceit.
