Number of Times Seen – at least twice (6 Dec 2004 and 16 Jun 2021)
Brief Synopsis – After an undercover cop is shot by a mobster, both the police and the mob start their own manhunts to find him.
My Take on it – This is a made for TV movie based on the real events that led to this undercover agents death.
The film does a nice job showing how both sides of the law race against time in order to find this killer.
They allow the viewer to see the various methods that tare used by both sides while trying to discover the whereabouts of this man.
The film has a great cast that includes Samuel L. Jackson, Tony Danza, Kevin Corrigan, Dan Lauria, Frank Vincent and Ted Levine who all help add to the suspense of the story.
The movie is part of a collection of films that depict the way that certain police officers were killed in the line of duty and allow the viewer to get a better understanding of how these deaths occurred.
The story is a bit tame in the way that it depicts everything that happens and that takes away slightly from the impact because it feels too watered down in how everything is depicted.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – When Farace and his accomplice drive past the DEA agents’ car and does a U-Turn, there is a security officer/fireman in the background. In the next shot from outside the car, the officer is gone. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
