Quotes

Steve Donohue: The jails are filling up. It's standing-room-only in the morgues, and everybody is just praying to God that they don't end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Well I'll tell you, I work in places where people are dying with disease and they are dying with drugs. And they will kill you over a dirty look. In this city, you only got 30,000 like me. We're your last line of defense. But you make us fight you little dirty war in *quiet*, because you nice people don't care what the mutts do to ...

Strong lead performance by Pullman in a compelling film.
16 January 2000 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Bill Pullman (Independence Day, While You Were Sleeping) stars as a police officer who takes over the courtroom where an accused cop-killer is going to be let free because the evidence he collected is in-admissable. Jon Seda (Selena, Sunchaser) plays the accused cop-killer. The film gains most of its strength from the two main performances, especially Pullman's. Always a likeable actor, Pullman creates a flawed character who is in way over his head. Seda gives a very good performance also. Highly recommended.
