Keen young Raymond Avila joins the Internal Affairs Department of the Los Angeles police. He and partner Amy Wallace are soon looking closely at the activities of cop Dennis Peck whose financial holdings start to suggest something shady. Indeed Peck is involved in any number of dubious or downright criminal activities. He is also devious, a womaniser, and a clever manipulator, and he starts to turn his attention on Avila. Written by

Shortly thereafter, from behind Peck is shown taking a sip of his drink with his right hand, when only his left hand would be available. See more »
[conferring in private after Raymond offered immunity to Van Stretch]
You are not authorized to make this deal. It's a violation even to *offer* it!
Look at him. He wants to talk. If Peck were clean, there'd be nothing to talk about.
I am the senior partner. *Your* mistakes go on *my* file! Either you retract the offer to Van or *I will*!
[Raymond shakes his head]
All right. How about this then? Why don't you and Dennis Peck both *pull them out* and I'll decide which one's bigger!

Trivia time - these two really didn't like each other
Atmospheric drama about a good cop (Andy Garcia) going after a bad cop (Richard Gere). What sets it apart is the interplay between the two leads.
My girlfriend's ex-husband worked on the set during production and she told me that the fight scenes in the film were real. Andy Garcia and Richard Gere really went at it in the elevator. The wounds they had were real, not fake. After filming had been completed, Garcia refused to attend the post-production party.
Knowing this, watch the film again. The tension between the two is palpable in just about every scene they're in together. Which makes for a pretty decent movie.
