Better than expected
27 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

I've long admired the work and professionalism of the U.S. Postal Inspectors Service and was happy to see them showcased in a film featuring such a top talent. I was also afraid that it would come out of Hollywood as your basic bit of brainless showbiz supercops nonsense. What an enjoyable relief to find my fears groundless. This film portrays solid, realistic, believable and honestly likeable characters doing their jobs in one of the worlds finest and least-known law enforcement services. The writing is solid, the direction crisp and the performances first-rate. Highly recommended.
