I'm not sure what I think about this as a whole. I think it wanted to be more than it was: there were interesting side bits about the people police captain Kove draws into his plan to eliminate Joey Randall, the flawed but ultimately sympathetic lead as played by the always-nice-to-look-at Richard Grieco. Corbin Bernsen was entertaining in his brief on screen time; Angelo Ales was also very colorful as Uncle Sal, and Sherrie Rose was a treat as a psycho druggie chick, clearly enjoying her role very much. Some things were predictable and some came out of nowhere, such as Grieco's old love seemingly suddenly changing her mind about her feelings for him. Priscilla Barnes' cameo was nicely creepy. Good cast, uneven script; not too sure about the voice-overs from Grieco about things we could see for ourselves. I'm searching for the way to sum this up... and I guess... it wasn't bad. If you like Grieco, you'll like this, and the supporting cast is interesting. If you like chases and fights, you'll like this well enough, too. Not a cinematic masterpiece by any means, but not the worst way to spend 90 minutes, either. And Grieco is good for "the scenery" alone.
