Adequate -barely-TVcop movie
1 March 2008 | by lorenellroySee all my reviews

Angie Dickinson plays a New York City homicide cop assigned to a task force to investigate the death of a female cop in a department store bomb blast .The death is not the only one as soon after another policewoman is killed when a drug set up goes awry.Both women were Hispanic and had recently successfully sued the Police Department for reinstatement .At first Dickinson believes the killings were the work of disgruntled male officers angered at male colleagues losing their jobs as a consequence of the womens'actions .Soon however it becomes clear one of the victims was taking bribes and that other officers are similarly compromised .She ignores warnings to drop the case and soon she is battling to save her life as well as her career. The acting is pretty solid with good turns from Dickinson ,David soul as the commissioner ,Yaphet Kotto as an overzealous Internal Affairs investigator and Charles Gurning as Dickinson's ex-cop Dad.The writing and plotting are "by the numbers"and the direction functional.

This is no great shakes but passes muster as a workmanlike TV cop movie
