In this action thriller, Denzel Washington plays Nick Styles, the assistant district attorney of L.A. The film opens in his early days as a cop on the L.A.P.D. During a carnival, master criminal Earl Talbot Blake creates a scene after a botched drug deal. Styles and Blake confront each other, during which Blake is wounded by Styles and later sent to prison. Seven years later, Blake escapes from prison during a parole board hearing to carry out his revenge against Styles, and what follows is a violent series of events that destroys Styles' career. This sets the stage for one last bloody duel between Styles and Blake. Written by

When Odessa calls Blake, to set him up he says "You wanna find out who really got the power. Bring your punk ass to the tower!". In 1991, the year this movie was released, Ice-T released his album "O.G.(Original Gangster)" and on it was a track called "The Tower" which shares a similar line of "I ask myself just who had the power: The Whites,The Blacks, Or just the gun tower."

When Styles is playing basketball against Odessa near the beginning of the movie, you can clearly see the face of a stunt double with much darker skin, who is driving and slam-dunking the basketball rather than Denzel Washington. See more
