The plot goes much along the officially accepted lines of the investigation. The ending finally recreates the murder itself and places Gregory Diles (Faizon Love) , three henchmen and John Holmes (Val Kilmer) on the scene of the crime. One surprise in the ending (and most likely a departure from the accepted turn of events) is a scene where Diles forces John to kill Ron Launius (Josh Lucas) with a pipe; John is terrified at first, and refuses to do it, but finally breaks and smashes Launius's skull in a frenzy. The final two minutes show John and Dawn (Kate Bosworth) starting their intercontinental escape and briefly narrates the real-life fates of the main characters, ending with a pointed: "Currently, Eddie Nash is... a free man".
Thanks, Jaromir K!
