Al (Joe Pantoliano's character) admits to Andre that he has been married for 14 years. However, the audience does not see any pictures of him and his wife together or his wife or daughter, who is also mentioned later on in the film to both Andre's daughter, Nadia and to Romero, when he's sulking in his car. Andre also gives him a bouquet of flowers for Al to give to her after Nadia's wedding. See more »
This was Joe Pantoliano's first starring role, and I've always found him to play interesting guys - AFTER this movie because he's kind of flat in here. His character, "Al Benjamin," doesn't have the normal "Joey Pants" spark to him. Even the narration - and I love narration - is dull. His character also is a little obnoxious to be the "hero" of the story. Unlike others, I was expecting more going into this viewing.
His sidekick, however: "Joseph Romero" (Wade Dominguez) is very interesting. Michael Chiklis also was good as a Russian businessman who has been a target of the Soviet hit men.
The story is a bit convoluted, concerning the Russian and gas stations being used as fronts for tax purposes. Once again, we get the typical Hollywood cliché of the good cop being a renegade on the force. Overall: fair, at best.
