Storyline

The Carr Family is a well known family of cops, for three generations now. Now the current generation of cops are investigating a serial killer who murders his victims all differently so they can't trace them all back to him. Yet the murder starts sending Tom Carr, at the police station, videos with him, the serial killer, on it. If that wasn't bad enough. Tom and his wife Helen have to care for their nephew, Matt, when his mom is killed and his dad is hospitalized one night after a shooting at a near convince store. The killer starts to get personal now and attacks the Carr family, by kidnapping and threatening to kill Matt. What will the Carr family do in this time of Crisis? Will Matt be saved in enough time or be the next victim to the killer? Written by Princessmaniac1

Fantastic
30 May 2003 | by (Dallas) – See all my reviews

I was bolted to my seat throughout the riveting and emotional tour de force called "To Serve and Protect." Every actor and actress in this thing amazed me with their ability to draw me into the film, but I think the real high point here is a scene between one of the lead actresses and the sadly uncredited "Guy on bike." When he passes her on that bridge, and their eyes meet, all of the intensity and suspense that this movie has to offer comes to a head just before "Guy on bike" utters the words that define relief itself, "How's it goin'?" Absolutely fantastic stuff.
