Storyline

Set in a dirt-poor neighborhood in the fictional city of San Lovisa, Texas, EvenHand tells the story of two very different cops, working together for the first time. Rob Francis, recently divorced, finds the adjustment from his previous assignment in "Sleepytown" difficult. With his new partner, the volatile Ted Morning, he spends his days breaking up domestic disputes and attempting to make sense of a parade of lowlifes, firebugs and junkies. Morning is the original Texas cowboy, all muscle and bravado: arrest 'em first, ask questions later. The characters and events in EvenHand subtly intertwine until Francis and Morning must both face the consequences of their very different approaches to the job. Filmed on location in San Antonio, Texas, EvenHand is a police story, but it's not about car chases or shoot-outs. It's about two cops struggling to survive in a world where, without warning, numbing routine can give way to primal fear. Written by george lacey

thank God for films like this.
4 August 2003 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Evenhand has some great moments and an underlying current of humanity that can also make you smell the weathered, junk food laden interior of the Patrol car which the two lead actors spend most of the movie inside. Yes, there are some pacing problems in the first half-hour (which a company wanting to distribute it would probably fix up), but the performances of Bill Dawes and Bill Sage are subtle and extraordinary. Kudos to director Joseph Pierson for coralling two awesome, relatively unknown actors and giving the film a sure directorial hand.
