"The insurance fraud was actually just a cover so Andrew could kill Milo. It turns out the gun had blanks in it, and Andrew was just screwing with Milo.

Haha, all the black spoiler bars make this review look like it's been censored by the government. It reminds me of that scene in "Ninotchka" where she gets a letter from Leon and most of it is crossed

The Overlooked and Underrated (129 movies items)

"I've always liked Michael Caine (who doesn't?), but "Sleuth" brought me new levels of appreciation for him. Both him and Oliver are beyond phenomenal here. Pfft, screw Marlon Brando in "The Godfather", Caine should have won an Oscar for this. Now if you don't mind, I have to go lay low for a while as I have just triggered an angry mob."
