Storyline

Nelson Crowe is a CIA operative under the thumb of the Company for a disputed delivery of $50,000 in gold. They blackmail him into working for the Grimes Organization, which is set up as a private company for hire, to blackmail prominent individuals. Crowe, working with Margaret Wells (another former Covert Operations operative), blackmails and bribes a State Supreme Court judge, but the deal sours. One of Crowe's co-workers, Tod Stapp, discovers Crowe's current CIA involvement in a plot to overthrow Grimes, and blackmails him to be cut in on the deal. More blackmail occurs as Wells manipulates Crowe to kill Grimes, then the CIA uses that discovery to blackmail Wells into killing Crowe. Who can you trust???

Quotes

Margaret Wells: And here we are, just the three of us, about to suborn a supreme court justice into voting against crippled kids.
Vic Grimes: Does that give you pause, Mr. Crowe?
Nelson Crowe: Sure.
Vic Grimes: But?
Nelson Crowe: No "buts." The two of you wanted to know if it gives me pause; I said yes. It's a felony. If I get caught, I go to jail. That gives me pause, alright? If it didn't, you wouldn't have me working for you.
Vic Grimes: What about the deformed tots?
Nelson Crowe: I suppose I think of them as often as they think of me.

A great cast boosts an average thriller
20 August 2005 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

Decent thriller has a basic story of double-dealing partners with different agendas and bribery of a judge with a gambling problem. Ellen Barkin, Laurence Fishburne and Frank Langella are the principals involved in an organization that specializes in blackmail and bribery schemes, with double crosses thrown in for good measure. A key element in the picture is the offer of a bribe to a judge for his vote in a controversial court case, with the predictable drama and mystery following thereafter. The film also has wild sex scenes that are intended to add spice to a complicated mystery involving shadowy CIA and espionage figures. Gia Carides has a key supporting role as the judge's mistress who later acts out her part of a woman bent on payback. Remainder of the cast is okay and the tech credits are fine.
