Don't get me wrong, I like Denzel Washington. I like John Lithgow. I just don't like them together in this movie! Too many implausible situations for me to believe anything like these events could actually happen in real life even though yea, I know, it's ONLY a movie. No real character development, just a lot of action, sex, violence. And we're supposed to believe Denzel, as the cop, paid his way through law school?? One scene towards the end was right out of "White Heat". I'm sure they weren't paying homage to that excellent James Cagney movie, the director probably just ran out of ideas. Watch once if you feel the need and forget about it.........or watch Philadelphia instead.
