Storyline

While on an undercover infiltration mission, Denver police detective Christian Box has to use some drugs, and is believed by many to have become an addict; it goes wrong, and his wife, also in the operation, is killed; he gets the blame, but thanks to Lietenant Blake he isn't officially charged, 'just' reduced to desk work. Two years later he grabs a unique opportunity to mount a new, dodgy undercover operation which should constitute his revenge against the crime family... Written by KGF Vissers

A persistent cop evens the score.
15 June 2002 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

William Baldwin is a Denver policeman that come hell or high water will avenge the killing of his wife during a drug bust gone bad. Some blatant violence and the obligatory, mostly implied sexuality for spice. The story is a little hackneyed, but you have to root for the frustrated Baldwin. Brigitte Bako is absolutely gorgeous and impressive with her mood swings. Lee Majors at this age finds a part that he carries off real well. Tim Ryan and Robert Madrid are notable in support. Intrigue, anxiety and revenge keeps the story moving.
