Storyline

In Bridgeport, Connecticut, Detective David 'Cal' Callahan is a family man, married to Alexandra with a teenage daughter, Lanie. Cal has an unscrupulous past, drug and alcohol addicted, and he was reborn when he was shot by a drug dealer and saved by a stranger. When a stranger meets Cal in a bar, he tells Cal that he was the one who saved him and gives the journal of his deceased daughter to Cal. He tells Cal that she committed suicide after she was beaten up and raped by Angel, a regular at the night-club where she danced, owned by the drug dealer Royce Walker. Cal investigates Angel and when he sees the man in his car in front of the school where Lanie studies, he believes that Angel is a pedophile and Cal decides to take action. But he finds that he is a marionette and someone is pulling the strings and watching him dance. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Bad Cop Gone Good
3 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Deep in characters this is quite an engaging, but bleak and cold, look at another tortured cop who seeks a second chance. It is a rich storyline that requires the viewer to pay attention with twists and turns and multiple flashbacks.

It has a crisp and clear look and the performances are (except for the ever intense and intemperate Dorff) stiff, but credible. Police cover-ups and Stripper's uncovered are nothing new but this, based on a true case, is not a bad attempt at a bad Cop gone good diagnosis.

This barely released movie is worth a view for its rich and layered story that demands some respect despite some indifference from the money-men and critics.
