Decent for it's type

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.
