Storyline

Twenty year veteran investigator Sergeant James Buanacore (Wade Williams) starts the most important investigation of his life when a drug bust goes tragically bad. The death of the apparent suspect forces James out of the job he loves and into retirement. When James' wife Stephanie (Nicole Abisinio) has a miscarriage, he is devastated and begins to wonder about and question his previously strong faith. Depressed and angry, James isolates himself until his brother (David Sanborn) encourages him to take a job as a criminal justice teacher and baseball coach at a Christian high school. With his cop mentality challenging his students, James struggles through experiences with an unsupportive principal, a guidance counselor with a secret, and rebellious students. But when his best option seems to be quitting, a student challenges him to begin the investigation that will change his life, and those of his students, forever. Written by Rich Romano

The Investigator
30 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to this movie and was highly disappointed. The only plus about it was that it wasn't full of violence or blood and gore. I am glad we only rented it on Amazon for 3.99 instead of paying theater prices for a family of three. Although it is based on a true story I find most of it highly unbelievable. Some of the minor actors were remarkable but unfortunately the lead actor (Wade Williams)was unremarkable. The word "campy" comes to mind. The only other movie I have seen him in was Killer Cop (2002)which was horrible. His acting wasn't great in that movie either but at least it was more believable. Perhaps a better.lead.actor would have made this movie more believable and easier to watch, but I think even with a superb lead actor this movie would then only deserve five stars.
