Isaiah Reed (Fishburne) hands the keys to his criminal empire down to his son Marcus (Waddell). This was a decision they both came to regret, as his now-former friend attempted to kill father and son. They failed, and Marcus exacted vengeance. His mentor, Lt. Terrence Higgins (Rourke), opts to leave him alone if he joins the NYPD. Five years later, he has become part of the department's Street Crime Unit (SCU). But during a police beat, Higgins dies in an explosion. Now, with the help of his boss (Hargitay) and a mysterious detective (Walken), he needs to find out what happened, whether he walks the straight line of the law or not. Written by

When Marcus (Avery Waddell) performs the first "Freddie the cabbie" side mission, he says, "Next they'll have me flying remote-control toys." This is a direct reference to Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (where Zero (David Cross) used RC helicopters to do battle with his nemesis Berkley). See more
