Storyline

Stoney Cooper, a former Los Angeles police officer, is at a low point in his life. Kicked off the force because of his anti-authority attitude, he now ekes out a living as a freelancer in New York. All this changes when the daughter of an old friend is killed by a serial killer terrorizing L.A. Although almost nobody in his old home town is happy to see him back, Cooper pledges to bring the killer to justice before any more innocent people die.

Good Wings feature
16 May 2006 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

This is Wings Hauser's follow-up to his star making role in VICE SQUAD (1982) but with him playing the cop this time. Ex-cop Stoney Cooper (Hauser) returns to L.A. to track down the X Killer, whose latest victim was an old friend's granddaughter. Immediately upon his arrival Stoney runs afoul of his old enemies - cops and killers alike - and his ex-wife. The plot is a bit convoluted and full of convenience but the film moves at such a quick pace you hardly have time to contemplate things. Hauser exudes on screen charisma (the opening cliché bit where he disarms someone in a standoff is really good) and it is a shame he never got any further in theatrical vehicles. Surprisingly, not a lot of the supporting actors are well known. Lincoln Kilpatrick does show up as the angry police Captain and Estelle Getty has a bizarre 5 minute cameo as a foul mouthed cabbie.
