1st watched 5/13/2007 - 4 out of 10(Dir-Elliot Silverstein): Good cops going bad is the theme for this little better than average move that was obviously shot with a very low budget, but actually has credible performances by the two leads, Billy Zane & Kristin Minter. They seem to work well together, but it's not enough to pull the lazy storyline out of it's mediocrity. Zane's partner is killed while being with a call girl that he's consistently been spending time with since leaving his wife. The call girl, played by Minter, is considered a suspect in the murder and has to go in hiding after a narrow escape. Zane's character is taken off the case and put in the legal department, but of course he doesn't stop investigating(which is typical in these movies). His boss, played by Louis Gossett Jr., appears to be a friend initially and is supposedly protecting him but in a sad twist -- he of course is corrupt, too. I liked the ending, which I won't give away -- but it does put a nice personal touch on the movie, which otherwise would be a typical cops gone bad movie with the always "one and only one" exception. I don't know why there's a pre-occupation in Hollywood to make the decent cop a lonely abnormality but that's the way it normally is. I hope in real life it's the other way around. Oh well, this isn't real life and it's just a movie and a pretty mediocre one at that.
