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.
