Puts the thrill in thriller
26 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

A film which showcases what was clearly the high water mark in William Shatner's long and illustrious career. The Asian mafia plot line keeps it edgy, while the gay tween issues it softly addresses keeps it real. As a desperate father-cum-vigilante on a quest to solve his daughter's untimely murder,the only thing Chuck (Shatner) changes more often than his sweaters in this nail-biting whodunit are the rules themselves. He must though, as his antagonist turns out to be a lawless, yet colorfully dressed, band of drug smuggling, wanton Asians who will stop at close to nothing (spoiler alert - a heavy sack of shirts knocks them down but not out)to end his trying journey without any one of them going to the jail-house. A lazy-susan of supportive folk surround Chuck, most notably the police chief, who beams with the firmness associated with Morgan Freeman.
