   Martin ("A Life Less Ordinary's" Ewan McGregor) is the morgue's new nightwatchman. This meager-paying job, which he took to help pay his way through law school, winds up putting Martin in the wrong place at the wrong time, and he finds himself having to prove to his girlfriend (Patricia Arquette), his best friend (Josh Brolin) and an investigating officer (Nick Nolte) that despite mounting evidence, he is not a serial killer. Danish-born director/co-scripter Ole Bornedal's remake of his thriller "Nattevagten" does not successfully build momentum, and the sporadic, shallow attempts to mount suspense ruin a great premise.    Starring Ewan McGregor, Josh Brolin, Patricia Arquette and Nick Nolte. Directed by Ole Bornedal. Written by Ole Bornedal and Steven Soderbergh. Produced by Michael Obel. A Miramax release. Suspense thriller. Rated R for strong morbid violence, language, sexuality and some drug content. Running time: 101 min.
