Right to remain silent!
16 December 2002 | by ElbowSee all my reviews

This movie used to play on TV every once in a while, and its production values are more big-screen than small. The story is standard cop fare, but the pacing in impeccable. Some familiar faces (Robert Vaughn, Leslie Nielsen) are present, and the performances overall are more than adequate.

This movie is hard to find (it exists on VHS) but if you happen to catch it on TV, give it a watch.
