A tough San Francisco cop is suspected of killing his partner. When he begins to look for the actual killer, he discovers he didn't know his partner as well as he thought, as evidence of the dead man's dirty dealings begins to mount.
A San Francisco, California detective (Sam Elliott) goes wild when he discovers his partner dead and the presumed culprit standing over him. After beating the man to death, he comes to his senses and realizes that he has to get rid of the body of the beaten man. Dumping the man in the river, he returns to his partner's body and calls in the death. He is then given a new partner (Esai Morales) and is assigned to investigate the death of a man just pulled from the river causing all the expected problems. However, the investigation leads to police corruption and his own partner's involvement in drug running.Written by

I'm rating this pretty high just because of Sam Elliott. I could've done without the female nudity but I'd sit through almost any nonsense in order to see Sam strut his stuff. He gets to spout wonderfully cynical witticisms, many of which I agree with, and it's a joy to see him in a role in which he actually gets to emote instead of just standing around scowling and looking virile as can be. My boyfriend opined that this movie is in a couple of ways similar to a film in which Ed Harris had a Hispanic partner (in the police sense of the term!) who was a little overeager to prove himself. You can draw your own conclusions on that score but if you like Sam, you'll like this. You could say I'm biased, but who isn't in some way? I'd buy this on DVD in a heartbeat!
