New York detective Mike Santini is enjoying a holiday with his family when he spots Eddie Meyers, a fugitive from justice who might be the key witness in a high profile case involving money laundering. Santini plays a major role in capturing Meyers which prompts the wiley criminal to request Santini to be the interrogating officer. The two size each other up in the interrogation room in a thriller that provides a number of unexpected twists. Written by
I saw the ads for this on TNT and was impressed by the stable of actors involved. Sam Neill, excellent in everything I've seen him in, (including "Omen IV"--that's saying something); Rob Lowe, an actor who until recently hasn't secured the challenging roles his ability demands; and Alicia Coppola, an actress whose looks and abilities deserve more air-time.
The surprise aspect: A very good story. Nice twists, and a sense of humor and style (rare for TV movies, generally speaking).
Sympathetic characters (a depth to them) with shades of gray. They make mistakes and deal with them, but in the end maintain their integrity.
All in all, worth the time spent watching. Satisfying and entertaining. In the end, that's everything a movie should aspire to be.
