Standard TV movie – feels like a pilot
4 February 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Retired British police officer Edward Harrison travels to NYC to see his daughter before he retires to Australia. Once there he meets her boyfriend Frank and gets involved in a suspected serial killing. However Harrison sees some things that lead him to suspect that Captain Sternhardt and vice officer Tierney are wrong in their assumptions about the killings. Meanwhile a pair of Irishmen are involved in the shooting of two cops.

This is very much a TV movie from start to finish. The story moves very slowly and relies on huge leaps of faith - Harrison at first makes the connection of the murders to the IRA by noticing one of the victims is wearing a shoe that was made in Dublin. The logic of the whole thing never gets better than that - the final twist is quite easy to guess. The whole thing feels like it's a pilot for another odd couple cop series, especially the `welcome to New York' ending.

The characters never get better than crude stereotypes - Woodward is very British and forces his natural accent and mannerisms to breaking point. Hurley is also too English and doesn't have very much to do. Jeffery Nordling is OK as Hurley's cop boyfriend and he gets the action part of the film to do. Rent-a-bad-guy Kim Coates shows up as an IRA terrorist, but he does an Irish accent that wanders from bad Northern Irish to bad Southern accent. In fact all the Irish accents are pretty bad - the worst being one `reformed' terrorist who says `peace' but pronounces it `pace'. The rest of the cast contains some well known faces including Mike Star's Lieutenant Tierney (every gangster film ever made!) and Daniel von Bargen's (Kruger in Sienfield) Captain Sternhardt.

Overall however it never gets above a standard TVM - and a pretty poor one at that.
