The Mission, Kill Crooked Cops
17 February 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

To Protect And Serve is the motto of Police Departments across the USA and in this case the title of a film starring C. Thomas Howell who finds himself among a lot of crooked cops. True to the blue wall of silence, Tom backs up this crew when they beat a suspect to death in their custody. He becomes part of the crew and earns their trust.

Months later somebody on a mission is doing a very nice job of killing all of this bunch who had a hand in the beating. Are they going to get to Tom next? Will his new partner and former lover, Lezlie Deane, get in the way when it all hits the fan?

This was one of those straight to video film releases that film distributors decided at the last minute wasn't marketable for the big screen. That's a pity because this film did have the potentiality to be something better. Even with all the holes in the plot, if someone like Clint Eastwood had starred, it would have gone to the big screen.

C. Thomas Howell is also listed as an associate producer. Had I been Tom I'd have paid more attention to the script because Tom does give a good performance. Standing out in the supporting cast is Zoe Trilling as a working girl who is a potential witness to the cop serial killer.
