"Hollywood Confidential" is a decent thriller but there are few surprises.
It's nice to see Edward James Olmos headlining. Leadership roles come so naturally to him and he slips into the pricipled-cop-turned-private-investigator's shoes without a hitch.
Oh, and note, that this film gives Charlize Theron one of her first roles.
