      These kind of movies, when done well, are excellent movies to see. When done poorly, they are a disaster. There is no middle ground with these kind of movies. With Code Name: The Cleaner, we have a fast-paced, twisting plot that kept me guessing around every corner, as Cedric the Entertainer’s character, Jake Rogers, slowly regains his lost memory, with the help of his waitress girlfriend, Lucy Liu’s Gina. To

      watch this movie was a treat, more so than I expected. Usually movies like this tend to disappoint me, with so many holes, inconsistencies and unbelievable characters or situations. It can be hard to keep such a plot together.

      Not so with Code Name: The Cleaner. The plot was tight, clever and believable, and the actors played their parts well. While there were some moments here and there which bordered on ...

      • the ridiculous, they were rare and could be overlooked in exchange for enjoying the rest of the fun.

        And fun it was. With oddball characters and a clever premise, who wouldn’t love this roller coaster ride through espionage and video games, and a janitor who thinks he’s a super secret agent? Or, is he a super secret agent just pretending to be a janitor who thinks he’s a super secret agent?


        only weakness I see, other than the minor, predictable flaws mentioned above, is the computer chip in the video game plot. First seen in Cloak and Dagger, and last seen in variation in Home Alone 4, it is getting kind of old, but if the rest of the plot is as fast-paced and entertaining as Code Name: The Cleaner, I suppose I can put up with this almost passe plot element.
