Sleeping Dogs Review: A Meandering Whodunit That Wastes Talented Actors-TGN

The clichés are all too apparent in Sleeping Dogs, Adam Cooper’s directorial debut. Russell Crowe stars as Roy Freeman, an ex-homicide detective who has forgotten most of his life due to Alzheimer's. While participating in a clinical trial to treat the disease, Roy finds himself pulled back into an old case when non-profit lawyer Emily Dietz (Kelly Graysen) contacts him on behalf of the alleged murderer Isaac Samuel (Pacharo Mzembe), who is set to be executed in a month. While a few of the actors give decent performances, it is not enough to overcome the stilted writing.
