Storyline

Although innocent, photographer Jackie Swanson is rounded up for dealing cocaine and sentenced to 400 hours of community service. She has to shoot nice pictures of police work. Jackie accidentally witnesses the corrupt police lieutenant Eddie Martin killing a pimp. Eddie also was the officer who arrested Jackie. She has taken pictures of the liquidation and uses them to force Eddie to alter his testimony about her so she can regain the custody over her little son she lost due to her conviction. Eddie, of course, tries to acquire the pictures and is assisted by a very unexpected ally... Written by Paul Mesken <usurper@euronet.nl>

Don't expect an action film with this one
30 April 2009 | by gridoon2018See all my reviews

Despite the cover and the title, "A Time To Die" is not an outright action film; it's more of a drama with action elements. I have to admit it surprised me a bit with its relaxed pacing, its fairly ambitious (if not totally unpredictable) script, its quirky sense of humor, and its emphasis on the characters. There are some outrageous contrivances (especially the never-seen-before "best friend" who gets mistaken for the heroine at one point), and the abrupt ending leaves the fates of some characters unclear. But Traci Lords is very appealing here, and Richard Roundtree is highly amusing as the loud police captain. **1/2 out of 4.
