Storyline

Ricky Santoro is a flamboyant and corrupt Atlantic City cop with a dream: become so well connected that he can become mayor. In lieu of that, he'll settle for keeping his comfortable lifestyle. On the night of the heavyweight boxing championship, Rick becomes mixed up in the assassination of the Secretary of Defense, an assassination involving his best friend. Becoming the investigating officer in the case, Rick soon uncovers a conspiracy to kill the Secretary and a mysterious woman in white. The conspiracy was shocking, but not half as shocking as the identity of its mastermind. Written by The Mystery Guest

Quotes

Rick: I'm betting that the redhead you followed is the same person who told Tyler to throw the fight. She's one. Shooter's two. Tyler's three. The drunk who shouted the signal is four and whoever was on the other end of that radio is five. Five people make a conspiracy, right?

Crazy Credits

The end credits scroll over a construction site scene (presumably the new casino), closing in tighter and tighter until the final shot is of a bright red jewel embedded in a concrete pillar that the workmen are installing. Most of the time the jewel is hidden under the hand of one of the workers. The ring was worn by the red-haired woman/Navy agent who was part of Commander Kevin Dunn's scheme. See more »

A pain, unwatchable mess.
9 September 1998 | by See all my reviews

This wasn't a movie, it was more like a two hour "ooooh-look-what-I-can-do -with-the-camera" exercise by DePalma. That 17 minute long opening shot wasn't amazing, it was annoying. All I could think after a while was "Just make a cut dammit!" I must also add that Cage and Sinise were absolutely terrible in this movie, but look at the material they were given I guess. Overall, this is the worst movie I have seen this year. (And that includes Phantoms.)
