Storyline

Deputy Clay Nelson is a young deputy who got the job he always wanted, a police officer for his town. However, soon after he begins, he learns of the ways of how his sheriff operates. While he endeavors to be honest and dedicated in his job, the other cops engage in graft and torture of the accused among other things while the sheriff acts like he is above the law. Eventually, his patience for this mockery of justice reaches the breaking point and Clay has to do something to stop it. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

A decent attempt
1 January 2000 | by NozzSee all my reviews

In his columns for The Jerusalem Report, Stu Schoffman has adopted this movie as his equivalent to The Horn Blows at Midnight, a personal failure to serve as joke fodder. And he says that he reminds his students what Sam Goldwyn said: "If you want to send a message, call Western Union." But the movie is a message movie, and not bad at presenting its message: clearly but without being browbeaten, the audience realizes that ethics are not as other movies like to make them seem. Unfortunately, Ricky Schroeder as hero looks more like the sort of person who finds that long division is not as simple as it seems. The other actors do all right, but there's no one to carry the movie.
