Storyline

Josh Pollack, a naive and ambitious reporter, is convinced the F.R.A.T., an elite force within the Edison Police Department, is corrupted. Working on a homicide case, he begins to unearth evidence which suggests that the entire justice system is willingly turning a blind eye to the abuses of the this force. When his life and that of his girlfriend are threatened from his research, he join forces with his editor, a once-famous reporter, and a renown private detective to bring down the F.R.A.T. and every one behind it. Written by Ploy P.

Goofs

Pollack makes a Xerox copy in the archive: He folds back the file and puts it on the exposure glass. He leaves the top cover open, he keeps down the booklet by hand and he starts copying. At the next moment we can see the booklet unfolded and pressed down by the closed top cover. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Deed: You're a big venue now. Global commerce, sports franchises, chit chat cafés. But you don't get it, because you don't see it. Life is not what you think it is. Because of guys like us, you can go on thinking it, 'til reality sets in. Reality's a motherfucker.

Hey... it wasn't THAT bad!
25 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Oh please... the worst movie ever?? Not even close. Any movie with Spacey and Freeman can't be all that bad. McDermott was actually pretty good. His 'bad boy cop' routine worked and LL Cool Jay was even OK as his partner. Nothing special but come on. Worst movie? You obviously don't see that many!

Bad cops vs cub reporter / aging veteran reporter. Not the most original story but there were enough action scenes to keep me interested and with the exception of Timberlake, the acting was good and the directing was quick and clean.

The worst part of the movie was Spaceys wig.
