Boring Cop "Thriller", 12 May 2010
Author: Comeuppance Reviews from United States Minor Outlying Islands

"Truth Be Told" is a boring cop thriller. Cops Stratten and Harris (Sheffer and Underwood) are corrupt cops after some dirty money. There's a double cross involving Rayne (King) too.

The problem is that nothing happens in this movie. The movie stares back at you with a blank expression. If you look at the cover, it looks like an exciting action thriller. The Lionsgate company always practices the "art of the deceptive cover". This is no exception. There is no action, just talking. Craig Sheffer and Blair Underwood are okay, but King doesn't have anything to work with. "Truth Be Told" was also known as: "Final Breakdown" and "Turnaround". If the movie can't decide on a title, that means the movie can't decide on a tone or genre.

The "Truth" is: "Turnaround" when you see this, because you won't regret it.
