Goofs

During the chase scene at the end of the picture, Taggart and his boys began firing on the cops following them, and they appeared to be shooting through some sort of opening in the rear of the van. However an exterior view of the Dollar Van revealed that the outside walls of the vehicle were solid. The cops giving chase were shooting blind into the van, and wound up killing all the mobsters inside. See more »

Serious-minded crime film
10 July 2011 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

Young police officer Kane Richmond pretends to "go bad" in order to get in with the gang of crooks who corrupted and caused the death of his friend. Richmond even goes so far as to let his police captain father think he has disgraced the force. Things are made no less stressful by the fact that Richmond's girlfriend (Pauline Moore) has come to stay with the family since the death of her brother--that same best friend. No, it's not believable for a minute, but what the heck.

Wynne Gibson is top-billed here as the co-leader of the gambling ring who intends to put her new recruit to evil use and is in turn betrayed by her partner (the ever-villainous John Miljan). Mary Gordon is earnest as always as the mother and wife of policemen.

A little more levity might have livened this one up. As it turned out, it's basically an okay revenge picture whose familiar faces do more to recommend it than its plot or dialog.
