Anyone who is a fan of the old "Wiseguy" series will like this movie
30 December 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

It's a shame that this is the last film Ken Wahl was ever in. As demoralized as Ken Wahl is about his injury and his addiction to drugs because of this injury, he still puts out a pretty good performance as Vinnie Terranova, the hunky, sensitive, undercover cop.

For people who have never seen the old "Wiseguy" series, they might not like this movie because they will not understand it. But for those who were glued to the TV everytime the show was on in the 1980s, will appreciate and enjoy this movie. This movie has all the classic elements of a "Wiseguy" episode and that is a great thing!

I'm sorry the Ken Wahl is no longer making movies. He's a wonderfully talented actor that has hit bad times. I hope he will rebound one day and return to TV, where he belongs.
