Being a cop gave me a chance to make a difference.
12 October 2007 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

Another story about a cop (Bo Dietl) that tries to do his job while still hanging on to his friends from the neighborhood. The fact that they are all mobsters gives the FBI an opportunity to blackmail him into working for them. He refuses and almost loses his badge.

Stephen Baldwin (The Usual Suspects) play Dietl, trying to stay clear of the slime played by Amy Irving and Victor Slezak. Why she would take that role is beyond me. It stunk!

Of course, we have to have a hot babe, and who better to play that role that Gina Gershon (Bound, Love Matters, Sweet Revenge).

It was interesting seeing Captain Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle) playing a gangster role.

Based on a true character, it was OK, but you can probably find something better to watch.
