Storyline

After a string of bad luck with their undercover operations, a duo of narcotics cops realizes that there must be a mole in their department, and their suspicion falls on their own captain, who never gives them a break. Nick, the hothead who's still in love with his ex-wife, is determined to prove that a local respected businessman is the head of the organization. But his pragmatic & debonair partner, Frank, agrees with the entire rest of the police force: Nick is crazy. After a forced vacation, they go a little beyond the law to bust the crime boss & find the mole. Written by Steve83

Number Zero with a Dud
18 March 2006 | by hunkbSee all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst films I have ever seen. There is absolutely no action, to much no since talking, and very bad music. I was about to hang myself with my belt if Robert Caridean sang one more tune as he has beetle eyes. Billy Dee Williams couldn't fire a gun if a 800lb person stood one inch in front of him. Doris Roberts should have retired thirty years ago for she has too many wrinkles for saying a quote. I would rather have my nose bit by a rattle snake while eating liver and onions than to see this film again. So save your time and watch real action films like Chuck Norris. I give this film 1 out of 10,000,000 Mountain Dews.
