Storyline

Chris O'Brien, devoted Catholic and rookie cop with LAPD, is assigned to partner with the hard-edged, street-smart Nora Hugosian. A serial killer is loose, and all the victims are low-life guys whom Nora has dealt with. So, when the tire tracks of a police car are found at a murder scene, she's the prime suspect of internal affairs investigator Simon Hertzel. Chris and Nora start an affair, but meanwhile he has suspicions about her. Should he start his own investigation, which would be an act of betrayal, or trust her, as his partner and his lover? When a witness i.d.'s Nora's former partner, Michael Clemence, as the killer, Nora gives Mike an alibi, and things get complicated. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Predictable Police Serial Murder Plot
15 November 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I had to give an award for some of the worst acting, it would go to this movie. I was ashamed to see Gina Gershon doing so poorly in the role of a (crooked) uniformed police officer. Not only was the plot predictable, but the acting stunk. It surprised me because Gina did a great job as Castor Troy's girlfriend in FACE/OFF. So, if you want to see a boring, predictable police "whodunnit" flick, then see it. My advice = forget it. James Handy played the Captain, or Lieutenant, or Sergeant, I forgot, but he's the jerk who plays Internal Affairs, or "IAB" as they call it on NYPD BLUE. He's another character who's acting is predictable, and his character is never really liked. But I guess that's what he's good at. Only actor who was worth his salt was Ron Silver. He does a convincing role as an investigator, but towards the end kind of just fades away! SKIP THIS ONE
