Jessica Alba was the first choice of the writers to play the role of Jessica Dawson. Writers Anthony Thorne and Kevin Barrett both approached Alba for the role, but she couldn't fit the film into her schedule due to her commitments with launching her consumer goods company. See more »

Another 'corrupt cop' movie but not a terrible one.
All the scenes in the movie and the story,u would have seen it all before, most of the time done better than how it's done in this movie. But still this movie is very watchable and had some interesting parts. The acting in this movie is solid too. Not award material but for what they are given,i think the actors have done a very good job. Lochyln Munro ,especially,was really good in his role. He seemed so involved and committed to his role and it shows in his performance. The director could have directed his scenes better though and maybe build a little more character arc for him. And they could have also used Martin Sheen more. I didn't like the climax much as it seemed rushed but other than that i think it's a good enough movie that u can rent and watch or if u happen to catch this movie on TV,it's worth spending some free time on.
