William R. Moses,

Charles S. Dutton
Brian Dennehy directs, co-writes and stars ins this mix of urban and homely television movie. Sergeant Jack Reed, a veteran Chicago homicide detective is once again passed over for promotion because he is deemed to be too honest and the job may go to a black cop (Charles Dutton)which leads to a lot of affirmative action comments.
This case involves the murder of a pregnant stripper where the main suspect his her boyfriend (Miguel Ferrer.) Reed and the black detective despite their difficulties work well together to solve the crime but there is very little insight regarding any police procedural, drama and I never even got an insight to the motive.
I have seen a later Jack Reed film that was rather violent, this one was more tame as if it was hemmed in by TV censorship conventions. Its an inoffensive piece there is a bit of humour with Reeds friends and family but its bland.
