Storyline

Jack Reed is investigating a mass murder that occurred in a cemetery in broad daylight. Most individuals at the cemetery and the victims are Russian immigrants and they either fear or don't trust the police, because they have complaining about other problems to the police but they don't care or think it warrants investigating. Reed still investigates and it leads to a devious Russian who has turned some young Russians into his private army. Reed's friend, Charles Silvera, also has a problem. The son of an old friend and mayoral candidate, Gordon Thomas, has been arrested for killing someone while driving under the influence. Some of the people on Thomas' staff are afraid that this might jeopardize Thomas' bid for mayor, so they are pressuring Silvera to make it go away but Silvera relents so they threaten him to.

Weedy Reed
3 July 2014 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Brian Dennehy became something of a cult actor with turns in films such as First Blood, FX, Belly of an architect. Here he directs, co-writes and stars in this made for TV film which is the last in the series of Jack Reed films that Dennehy starred in.

The plot concerns a Russian gangster type killing people in a cemetery and raising his own street gang. Other Russian immigrants are scared to complain because they know the police will not take them seriously.

As with this type of film there is a B plot involving the son of a mayoral candidate involved in a homicide and so pressure is brought on to the police force to make the investigation go away.

This is the first Jack Reed film I have seen and I can only say that I hope this was atypical of the previous films because Dennehy should stick to acting and not writing or directing.

This is lame stuff, badly written, poorly plotted and some bad acting which wastes some of the talent on the screen. Just look at the way the gangster escapes when he is surrounded by police with all sorts of weapons and who put down their guns before the gangster puts his down. Just bad.
