You Got to Fight the Power...
24 August 2003 | by (Newfoundland, Canada) – See all my reviews

PANIC IN ECHO PARK basically features an heroic black doctor (Dorian Harewood) going up against white corruption in Los Angeles when he discovers who was really behind water in a local downtown building becoming polluted leading to a contagion at his hospital. This TV movie also has a "fight the powers that be" theme underlying it. Not bad of its type.
