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

Wow look its err.. that guy errr....
15 February 2002 | by (Brum) – See all my reviews

This is a brilliant film and features all of those actors who you recognise but cant put a name to. Peter Weller (Robocop) stars as a detective with a Marx brothers style moustache who has lost the glasses that go with it. He does however find the hide out of some pretty nasty terrorists headed by John Rhys Davies (Indiana Jones and Sliders) One of the terrorists is the highly unapreciated actor Branscombe Richmond (Renegade, Commando, Batman Returns and many more..) he steals what is a pretty poor show with his usual comic routine. The action sequenes are well stage and look out for a cameo by Charles Bronson playing his deathwish character. Overall it lacks focus but is still worth a watch. 8/10
