User Reviews

The beginning begins must to be fascinating, but the continuation is a little bit flat.
20 July 2001 | by lionel.willoquetSee all my reviews

The New York policeman Stephen Baldwin partied with his childhood friend, the mafioso Mike McGlone. Their complicity draws the attention of FBI... Inspired by the life of the policeman Bo Dietl, this muscular whodunit interpreted by Stephen Baldwin ("The Usual Suspects") brushes a bitter and violent picture of the daily life in the New York police. The first quarter of an hour let augur a robust detective, bitter and restless film. But the continuation does not hold the initial promises. The intrigue, badly tied up, suffers from the Stephen Baldwin's transparent interpretation.
