Carter's Last Film.
5 September 2000 | by (Lake Isabella, CA) – See all my reviews

Peter Carter's last film (The late director of Rituals, Wolf Dog and The Intruder Within) directs this comedy and action film with Richard Harris as an undercover cop. Some of the scenes could very well be funny another film like this was made called Kuffs with Christian Slater. Carter supposely died of a Heart Attack shortly after this films release.
