Storyline

F/X man Rollie Tyler is now a toymaker. Mike, the ex-husband of his girlfriend Kim, is a cop. He asks Rollie to help catch a killer. The operation goes well until some unknown man kills both the killer and Mike. Mike's boss, Silak says it was the killer who killed Mike but Rollie knows it wasn't. Obviously, Silak is involved with Mike's death, so he calls on Leo McCarthy, the cop from the last movie, who is now a P.I., for help and they discover it's not just Silak they have to worry about.

Matt Neely: 10?
Leo McCarthy: Oh Jesus here we go, what did he tell you kid 5? Hunh? 2 and a half apiece or was your end just supposed to be your parole and car fare?
Matt Neely: You son of a bitch Silak.
Lt. Ray Silak, NYPD: Hold it, you were gonna get a full cut.

Lt. Ray Silak, NYPD: The 10 million.
Matt Neely: Bullshit. I was the one who got Becker to talk. If it wasn't for me, you and that bitch would be nowhere.
Leo McCarthy: You're absolutely right, you deserve an equal share or maybe 60/40. After all, you were the one who had to go back inside.

Guilty Pleasure
30 December 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Everyone has one or two films which they know in their heart of hearts isn't a great film, maybe not even an average one but for whatever reason it crawls inside your head and wont let go. You just can't help but love it and this is one of mine. The acting is OK, the story idea is kind of cool if a little un-believable, the bad guys are inept (why doesn't anyone just shoot the guy!) but none of it matters I love this film.

Bryan Brown is excellent as the FX Man on the run and Brian Denehhey is up to his usual standards as good backup. It's a fun run from start to finish if you sit back and let it go this is a great way to pass 95mins. The FX tricks employed are clever and gosh darn it there's a happy ending maybe i'm just sentimental!! I hope more people see this film I highly recommend it, now i'm off to write a review of my other guilty pleasure the Secret of My Success.....

8/10
