Storyline

While on an undercover infiltration mission, Denver police detective Christian Box has to use some drugs, and is believed by many to have become an addict. It goes wrong, and his wife, also in the operation, is killed. He gets the blame, but thanks to Lieutenant Blake he isn't officially charged, "just" reduced to desk work. Two years later, he grabs a unique opportunity to mount a new, dodgy undercover operation which should constitute his revenge against the crime family. Written by KGF Vissers

A persistent cop evens the score.
15 June 2002 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

William Baldwin is a Denver policeman that come hell or high water will avenge the killing of his wife during a drug bust gone bad. Some blatant violence and the obligatory, mostly implied sexuality for spice. The story is a little hackneyed, but you have to root for the frustrated Baldwin. Brigitte Bako is absolutely gorgeous and impressive with her mood swings. Lee Majors at this age finds a part that he carries off real well. Tim Ryan and Robert Madrid are notable in support. Intrigue, anxiety and revenge keeps the story moving.
