I wonder why the cover brings so much attention to the back tattoo of the main character, or why he has his unlikely ornamentations in the first place. Danny Parker / Tom Van Allen (Val Kilmer) is a fairly low profile character who lost his wife and decides to start his own under cover operation into the local drug scene in order to find the people who murdered his wife in a bit of a “Mememto” story (the story, not the way it is told).
Starting as a drug addict, Kilmer’s character grows towards being a man with a mission. This is told in an alright manner, but I do not find “The Salton Sea” much of a high-flyer. Just an alright film.
