In Phoenix, Arizona, all is not well at the local police station as some of the colleagues are not good of heart. Superstitious cop Harry Collins is on the take. He a compulsive gambler who is forced to plan a heist with fellow cops Mike, James, and Fred to rip off local pimp and overall bad guy, Louie, to pay off gambling debts run up with "bookie" Chicago.

Many films try to examine the corruption of the human character, but only a very few succeed. Phoenix is one of those few. Writer Eddie Richey truly understands emotion. It's not a hero vs villain gratuitous action flick like the god awful Matrix series. The story's conflict is produced by the protagonist himself. And Ray Liotta is amazing. James L. Carter's cinematography is beautiful and Graeme Revell's score is moving. Director Danny Cannon's resume is embarrassing, but it's redeemed by this masterpiece. Phoenix is the very essence of human drama.
