Low key thriller. (spoilers)
1 January 2006 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

Glitz is a rather hard-to-find, but low-key made-for-TV thriller, and a nice surprise. Despite speedy introduction of events, the story flows without much hallaboo of action. Easy-going Jimmy Smits plays a surprisingly more orthodox cop (than is typical of these movies) investigating a young woman's death following a plunge from a balcony window, an investigation which leads him to an old nemesis (John Deihl as a sadistic creep), among others in Cuba and Atlantic City's criminal underground. In the end, it becomes a test of who is going to get to other first. Well worth a try if your in the mood for a fluid cop drama.
