Storyline

When prominent businessman Andrew Pyne is found shot in a New York alley, one of the NYPD's best, Rick Mallory, suspects a Galeno Mob hit. When he and his partner, Amos Turzo try to question Pyne's widow, Hadley, they are quickly ushered out by her mother-in-law Margeaux. Later when Rick comes back to search Pyne's apartment, he finds material linking the dead man with Endtook, the Galeno's company. The police raid Joe Galeno's house and find the gun that killed Pyne. Joe Galeno is arrested and Rick returns to the Pyne apartment to tell Hadley. She is very distraught, and as Rick comforts her, they become engaged in an ardent affair. Joe Galeno's cousin, Alonzo, is convinced Joe is innocent. He hires Rico Perrini, Rick's former partner, now a private detective, to work on the case. Rico tracks down Pyne's rumored killer, a low-life thug named Tony Fabian, who confesses that Hadley paid him to kill her husband. Rick is now under suspicion and transferred out of homicide. Rick knows ... Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

I thought this movie was pretty good, actually!
25 October 2005 | by (Motown) – See all my reviews

Of course, it's true that story lines are being re-hashed on a constant basis, many films are guilty of this, but really, what can they do? How many endings are unique these days? Seems as if all the story lines are taken! So then it's up to the actors to make it fresh for us and I feel that this film succeeded in doing so! I would recommend it to anyone who needed a new film to watch, that has not been in the theatres, who is interested in maybe seeing all the work of more obscure actors because I have to admit that I hate to see a fine actor such as Tom McCamus WASTED in a movie like this, but even he probably could use a chance to make money now & then for his art. I just want to see everything he's done (and enjoyed his appearance in Stratford in Threepenny Opera, too.)
