In this action thriller, Denzel Washington plays Nick Styles, the assistant district attorney of L.A. The film opens in his early days as a cop on the L.A.P.D. During a carnival, master criminal Earl Talbot Blake creates a scene after a botched drug deal. Styles and Blake confront each other, during which Blake is wounded by Styles and later sent to prison. Seven years later, Blake escapes from prison during a parole board hearing to carry out his revenge against Styles, and what follows is a violent series of events that destroys Styles' career. This sets the stage for one last bloody duel between Styles and Blake.Written by

After the prison cafeteria duel, Blake calls Kim (disparagingly), "Nurse Nancy." In Lithgow's "Harry and the Hendersons" (1987), his character's wife is named Nancy-and they nurse a Sasquatch back to health. See more »
When Earl Talbot Blake is in the prison infirmary watching a video of Nick Styles about to initiate an arrest on a Drug Deal, the date on-screen says "11.Sept.1985". The voice-over narrator states, Nick Styles arrested Blake "Two Years Ago". There is a banner at the beginning of the Carnival Scene that Blake and Styles first meet, that has "1984" on it, which contradicts what the announces stated. See more »
This movie rocks! The double cat-and-mouse game played by Washington and Lithgow works. If you are looking for an action movie that provides plenty of thrills, conflicts, drama, chases, and breathtaking suspenses and actually has a PLOT, then this film is for you.
Washington and Lithgow are both first rate, as always, and this movie does not disappoint. Watch it!
*** out of ****
