Near the end, Peter Cochran and Julie Barnes jump out of a moving vehicle that crashes into an almost empty warehouse. After it crashes through one wall, you can hear tires screeching as if someone had slammed on the brakes. However, no one was in the vehicle to do so. See more »

This movie started off terrible and then settled into mediocrity.Claire Danes is an attractive and talented actress but she's wasted in this. Giovanni Ribisi has to be one of the most annoying, slack-jawed actors out there,and his character is just as annoying as he is. Omar Epps seems preoccupied with appearing cool(you don't pull it off, Omar). Dennis Farina isn't in this that much,lucky him.That's too bad,because he's a good, likeable actor(that's more than I can say for Ribisi and Epps). The plot is a tired,boring police corruption set-up that's been done much better a million times(L.A. Confidential,for one). Just chalk this one up as another failed T.V. show into movie adaption(which,arguably is pretty much all of them,except for The Fugitive and The Untouchables). ** out of four stars.
