Brief Synopsis – A former detective tries to find a serial killer who caused the death of his father two years earlier.

My Take on it – Fun 90’s Willis police thriller that works quite well in weaving a very intriguing story that is quite ambiguous at times in order to keep the viewer guessing. Amazing cast led by Willis helps make this even more enjoyable to watch unfold because one never knows where things might go. The character that Willis plays is the kind he was bred for and this helps keep the story flowing in a nice way.  They have minimal action here, but the thrills are done really well as things play out.  There are some strange subplots that make little sense, but still add to the atmosphere of it all.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Co-star Robert Pastorelli accidentally blurted out the big plot twist during an appearance on ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ long before the film was released. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10) (no change from original review)
