" My Father was a good Cop, but he reminded me, everybody has secrets "
29 November 2010 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Peter Weller has made himself unforgettable with his portrayal of 'Robo-Cop.' Since then, he has tried various other movie roles and for the most part his films have been accepted, but few are strong enough to surpass his original character. In this movie, " Rainbow Drive " he plays Det. Mike Gallagher (Peter Weller) a Homicide Officer who works the Hollywood division. Unfortunately, a multiple murder takes place just doors from his home but surprisingly, his jurisdiction is taken from him and Dan Crawford (Bruce Weitz) his partner. When it's learned, he is still investigating, his partner is killed and he is threatened with death. The farther he investigates, the more danger he is exposed to and those who wish to bury the murders are high and hot and stem from very powerful sources. For Weller, this type of film is filled with Dark Drama, cloak and dagger and plenty of backstreet shadows filled with lethal results. It is interesting to see David Caruso from TV's CSI fame playing, Larry Hammond and that in itself makes for a great combination. All in all, a much better caliber of movie which might lean itself to interesting movie audiences and Peter Weller fans. ****
