Storyline

Ryder Hart is a disgraced ex-cop who is now a low-rent private investigator. His estranged wife, Anita, runs the Sunset Grill and is now involved with Jeff a police detective who used to work with Ryder. When Anita is found brutally murdered, Ryder and Jeff team-up to find her killer. The case appears to be related to an immigrant who worked at the Sunset Grill and an old friend of Ryder's named Guillermo. During their investigation, Ryder and Jeff meet Harrison Shelgrove, a wealthy industrialist who owns a gun club. Loren, an employee at the club, seems to take an unusual amount of interest in Ryder. As Ryder gets closer to the truth, he begins to suspect that a crooked INS agent, Stockton, may know something about the case. What began as a search for the murderer of his wife, has lead Ryder into a mystery involving illegal immigrants in Los Angeles. Written by Yocke

Muddled Tale Of Slobs & Sex
20 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a sleazy tale of a slob private eye hunting down his wife's killers. Profanity, gratuitous sex, a cast full of unscrupulous people and even a sub-par quality VHS tape (when I watched this) all made give this a Class B-feel to it and not a movie I would rate higher than a '4."

The story has a big Hispanic flavor to it with settings in E. Los Angeles and Tijuana. The story could have been a good one, but's also too confusing parts and the ending is not quite clear. The whole thing is just too muddled.

Peter Weller and Lori Singer make for an interesting pair in the lead roles. Weller was a pretty appealing likable guy until the last 10 minutes of the movie. Singer, although still young, looks a lot harder in here than in the previous few films of hers. She enjoyed showing off her body in this film, even though it wasn't all that great.
