This is cheesy, yes, but I give it credit for being quite tense in the end, and always kept you guessing on who was innocent and who wasn't.
Mario Van Peebles plays Blair, a tough macho cop with a dark secret in his past that sparks up again in his life. Thus, he must cover it up, with the help of a former cop and friend Ethan, played by Zach Galligan. This, of course, involves a lot of shooting and cheesy lines. Eventually, it all blows up, and Blair gets his girlfriend Izabel, played by Nicollette Sheridan, and the trio run off, all with mixed emotions. But soon, things escalate, and you aren't sure who to trust. All of this leads up to quite a twisted little climax, not to mention quite tense.
An alright movie. Quite B-rated, and doesn't have a plot to save its life, but still okay, at least in the last third, when the three main characters are all involved. The acting is alright, nothing special. Van Peebles has very little talent, and is more prone to just shooting people and saying f*ck in EVERY sentence. Sheridan does her best to look elegant, and then fearful in the end, and she does quite well for herself. Galligan is convincing as a somewhat passive college professor thrust into all of this. Most of the other characters are forgettful in the mix of shootings and the word f*ck. But still, worth it for the tense final third, and the really suspenseful climax. I guess, worth a look if you really don't want to think. If you do...I suggest you move on.
