When a state trooper is gunned down on a New Jersey highway, his friend and colleague sets out to track down the killers. Realizing the murder is connected to an extensive underground terrorist ring, he joins forces with the FBI on a massive five-state hunt.
This true crime story focuses in the murder of a state trooper who had a good inkling of stopping suspicious vehicles that occurred in 1981.
Nicholas Turturro plays an enthusiastic young cop who was the partner of the murdered trooper and reluctantly teams up with arrogant FBI agent, Adam Arkin to find the culprits who are traced to be members of a left wing domestic underground terrorist group involved in robberies and blowing things up.
The film benefits with familiar faces such as Miguel Ferrer, Stephen Root, Dean Norris and future Oscar winner Melissa Leo.
The story is rather generic, an upset and eager cop going after the bad guys who killed his partner, teamed up with a more aloof FBI agent. Even the bad guys who do not want to kill ordinary people even cops but one of them is trigger happy leading to devastating results.
At least the terrorists were more interesting as a whole with a focus on their families and mores.
