The Last of the Finest (1990)

“Doesn’t matter what it is… if you’ve broken the law you’ve got to pay for it ” – Frank

Number of Times Seen – at least twice (Cable in the 90’s and 19 Apr 2017)

Brief Synopsis – A group of detectives must fight internal and external politics as they try to stop a massive drug deal from happening.

My Take on it – This is another film that I recall seeing on cable as a teen and remembered it being quite interesting.

Unfortunately, upon another viewing it just doesn’t hold up at all.

The story itself is quite mediocre and nothing really works as well as it should when telling a story.

Many of the plot points used here are laughable and I was surprised that they would attempt to present so many lame ideas.

What surprised me the most is the fact that the script, dialogue and plot are so poorly written yet all four of the main characters are played by well known actors.

One would think that Brian Dennehey, Joe Pantoliano, Jeff Fahey and Bill Paxton would have all known better than to sign on to a turkey like this one.

Bottom Line – Very mediocre film that doesn’t work as well as it could have.  Lots of plot points are quite lame and laughable.  The cast is great which is surprising since the dialogue and script are so weak.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Was released in several Asian and European territories under the title “Blue Heat”. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy

  1. I have to recuse myself from commenting on this movie because the writer is a good friend of mine. As to the merits of the script (and remember movies don’t always turn out as good or as bad as the way they start out with the words on the page) – he might agree with you. He went on to write “New Jack City”.
