Louis Gossett Carried this Picture on his Back
17 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story starts out with a firebug on the loose, a little boy takes pictures of the so called fire nut and the plot thickens. Bill Zane, (Jack Flinder), who is a detective and a super cop who looks for details, winds up sending his partner to the Big House. The police squad does not like him very much, however, Louis Gossett,Jr.(Ben Durand),"Window",'05 is the police captain and takes him under his wing and even promotes him. Kristin Mintor,(Lisa Cates),"Pissed",'05 plays a very sexy role, more like a prostitute, but one guy simply don't care and Bill Zane gets really involved with Lisa on a swinging boat and plenty of action. Good acting by Louis Gossett who held the picture together.
