Storyline

Jimmy Lynch is angry because his older brother, who was injured as a result of an off duty fire rescue, is denied benefits by the city. At the same time, Mayor Tyler is embroiled in a political scandal that he denies all previous knowledge of. Jimmy begins painting "Tyler Knew, Turk 182" as an embarrassment to the mayor. The mayor is furious at this grafitti appearing all over the city and orders the police to find the artist. Jimmy's "Turk 182" spraypaints continue to appear.

Callahan the Cop: There was a fire in the bathroom.
Det. Ryan: A fire in the bathroom. You leave the mayor's office unguarded for a fire in the bathroom? Jesus Christ, Callahan. That trick's in my kid's commando game! You'd better get yourself a new pair of shoes, Callahan.

A chilling story of a man, his brother's broken back and Kim Cattrall..
26 August 1999 | by sexyboySee all my reviews

What an epic movie this was...as a youth i was very interested in the central theme in this film, that of social disobedience. What do you do when your brother breaks his back while saving a young child from a burning building, and the state refuses to pay for his hospitalization..If you're Timothy Hutton there is only one answer..take up with Kim Cattrall and cover the town with grafitti. And not just any grafitti...Grafitti which scandalizes the mayor. The ending is as thrilling as it gets, which along with a Paul Sorvino Cameo and the generous usage of a stunning motorcycle with side car brought this reviewer to his knees...A must for motorcycle with sidecar enthusiasts and Spencer For Hire afficianados...
