Nothing new but a nicely done cop movie that takes a surprisingly broadsided look at corruption.
This movie comes nicely packaged with a particularly fine cast, superb production design and a wonderful jazz score. It's actually a convincing take on the methodologies behind both criminal and law-enforcement corruption. While it's not an original concept, it's one well handled here, with an adult sensibility and emotional honesty that makes it worthwhile viewing. Jon Seda shines.
