This comment does contain minor spoilers!

"In The Line of Duty: Street War" or "Urban Crossfire" is a well-made TV movie.

The plot is: Officers Raymond and Robert (Mario Van Peebles and Michael Boatman) are going after Justice Butler (Courtney B. Vance) an evil drug dealer. Unfortunately, Raymond gets killed by him. Now Robert wants revenge. Butler escapes and now Robert and Detective Reilly (Peter Boyle) have to catch him before he commits more crimes.

The acting is good with Peter Boyle and Courtney B. Vance standing out. The writing and directing is standard. No surprises in this story. Overall, it's worth seeing for the acting. One of the director's other movies "The FBI Murders" is also recommended.
