A taut political inner-city thriller
7 March 2000 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

A great choice for an election year, this taut political thriller pits Al Freeman Jr. and Leslie Nielsen as rivals forced to form an uneasy alliance. The supporting cast is spellbinding, especially Ruby Dee. A movie that stays with you long after the credits have rolled.
