Good acting wasted
1 March 2017 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Who doesn't like Michael Madsen? Surely he is this generations' Robert Mitchum. His breakout role in "Reservoir Dogs" was followed by "The Getaway", "Wyatt Earp", "Species", "Frankie the Fly", etc. and then the two "Kill Bill" films. He's one of Hollywood's busiest actors and even in this terrible film he's worth watching. So what can go wrong when he plays a detective in this film?

Lisa Bonet plays a reporter and she does a good job too. Bonet was the oldest child of the Huxtables and went on to be a serious actress in films like "Angel Heart" and "High Fidelity" and TV series "Life on Mars" and "Ray Donovan".

Cheap production values and a poor script make this film almost unwatchable, but Madsen and Bonet do some decent work.
