Storyline

In the early 1990s, Boston was rife with violence. Police corruption and racism were the norm - and then it all changed in what was called the "Boston Miracle." In this fictional account, Assistant District Attorney Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge) comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon). Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston. Written by SHOWTIME

Total Enjoyment
13 July 2019 | by craftfrSee all my reviews

Being from Boston, what can I say other than the story captures my interest. I know others will enjoy it too and you don't have to be from the land of the bean and the cod. The two leads, Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge, are excellent and believable. What two great professionals. I love it.
