Storyline

Detective Galban Keanu Reeves, finds his partner and close friend, Detective Cullen, murdered in an underground subway. On the hunt for the killer/s, Galban begins to suspect his partner may have been heavily involved in drug dealing and police corruption. As Galban investigates, people who knew Cullen, are conveniently found dead. The closer Galban gets to the truth, both Cullen's wife, Janine Mira Sorvino, and his Lieutenant Christopher McDonald, try to persuade him to back off, fearing his findings may discredit Cullen and expose corruption within the Police Department. Galban's only remaining lead is Isabel, a young, devout, Latina girl, who resides with her in-laws. Galban fears her life could be in jeopardy should he get too close to her. However, Isabel has recently experienced something not from this world, something mystical that she believes is truly a miracle. Not unlike Galban, Isabel is dealing with her own demons from the past; a past that just may lead them to the truth... Written by a-movie-fan

Trivia

The original story was a surreal bi-lingual drama, reminiscent of Pan's Labyrinth (2006) and Irréversible (2002) that focused on child abuse, violence towards women, mass incarceration and police violence committed under the color of authority. However, the movie was sold to Lionsgate Premiere, which thought it had been sold a Keanu Reeves cop thriller. During the editing process, Lionsgate Premiere changed the story's focus to center on Reeves' character, and changed the movie into a generic crime-thriller. Gee Malik Linton wrote and directed the film, but since Lionsgate Premiere and the producers edited the film without his approval, The Directors Guild of America (DGA) allowed him to take his name off the credits. He is still listed as writer, but his directing credit is listed as "Declain Dale". See more »

Alternate Versions

The writer/director intended the movie to be a dual language, Spanish/English social drama about violence towards women and child abuse. The producers instead turned the movie into Keanu Reeves cop thriller. An alternate version that follows the director's vision was edited by Roman Polanski's longtime editor, Hervé de Luze See more »

See it until the End, before you decide if it is good or bad...
24 January 2016 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

This is a movie that resembles a puzzle, in the sense that it has pieces that initially seem unrelated but in the end everything falls in place and you get the whole picture that it probably eluded you at the beginning.

The problem is that you don't know (or at least suspect) from the start that is such a movie, so for the most part you will feel cheated or at least disappointed.

Exposed had initially a different name which might be more suitable: "Daughter of God". Also the studio thought that they bought a police/crime/thriller starring Keanu Reeves. Don't be fooled, this not the case. The movie is far from a regular police drama.

Ana de Armas who starred with Reeves in the movie Knock-Knock gives a satisfying performance, but because of the somehow confusing premise, you might miss it. This time Keanu Reeves fails to give a good performance and in some scenes (like with Christopher McDonald who plays his Lieutenant) you might even notice him ...smirking despite the seriousness of the scene. Mira Sorvino is also in this and she is OK in a not-so-demanding role though.

Overall: This is not a poilice/crime/thriller. It is more like a psychological drama and I advise you to start thinking from the beginning about what is going on. Also stay with it, until the end, where all the pieces of the puzzle come together. Then you will see that it was a satisfying movie after all.
