Dumb cops vs. Dumb crooks
19 August 2001 | by (Chantilly, VA) – See all my reviews

The brief view: Anne Archer - wooden as ever. Dennis Hopper - over the top as usual, it almost pathetic to see him resort to all of the cliche'd devices of a so-called out of control cop. Companion movie to Hopper's "Backtrack", both of which are awful.
