Decent for it's type
1 July 2001 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

For a Jack Scalia outing this is as decent as it gets. Sure it's yet another one of those "dirty cop" movies, but it works. If you haven't seen any of Jack Scalia's direct-to-video movies where he plays the burned out lone cop then this might be the one to see.

Scalia stars as Detective Vince Morgan, a cop on the force suspected of being dirty. He and his partner raid a drug manufacturing warehouse unaware to Morgan his partner has been working with local reporter Karen Rikehardt (Stepfanie Kramer) leaking her a story. They go in and she's following behind the action. It's not long after his partner and the snitch inside end up dead and guess who's fingered. RikeHardt just might have the evidence of who did it to boot.

Typical late night fare. In fact, I've seen it two or three times by now. The story is serviceable and the conclusion is solid. What keeps the movie together is it's attempt at giving depth to otherwise routine characters. Rikehardt (Kramer) is caught in a messy separation with her ex involving her daughter and torn between her feelings for someone and doing the right thing. While Morgan (Scalia) slowly comes apart at the seams. Though not a golden offering of the type, it's marginally better than the stuff I'm accustomed to seeing on the tube.
