When a serial killer turns his attention on the lead detective he is asked to check into a clinic treating law enforcement officials who cant face their jobs. As the patients begin being murdered they restart doing what they do best.
Charles S. Dutton,
Years ago, Jack Carter left his Seattle home to become a Las Vegas mob casino financial enforcer. He returns for the funeral of his brother Richard 'Richie' after a car crash during a storm, atypical of the careful house-father. Talking to the widow, daughter Doreen and enigmatic Geraldine, Jack suspects it was murder. Cliff Brumby, whose club Richie ran, is financially linked to porn and prostitution baron Cyrus Paice, who claims to be just a front-man for ITC tycoon Jeremy Kinnear. Someone hired goon Thorpey to make Jack return to Las Vegas. Jack's partner Con McCarty is restless, apparently about their boss Les Fletcher whose wife had an affair with Jack. Someone breaks into Richie's home, looking for a crucial CD.Written by

On the elevator, Con says to Jack "Say Jack, when I said you take care of the business or the business will take care of you, did we have a bad connection on the cell? Maybe you weren't listening?" Only, Con never said this to Jack "on the cell" or during a phone conversation. Con said his "business will take care of you" line to Jack in person, when the two were together at the beginning, before Jack left Vegas. See more »

Stay clear of this remake. Two years ago I helped preserve the original for WB. I had to watch the film several times and came to enjoy it. I saw the remake this weekend and come home very p***ed. Everything you liked about the original has been removed and only the worse parts have been left and are over developed. The worst part of the charactor development is that the negative life that Carter has lived never really catches up with him as it did at the end of the original. The only saving grace for this film is that smidgens of the original music sound track were used. Save your money and see the original even if only on video tape.
