Two detectives investigate a cop killing. One of them is a former undercover agent who is alienating his wife by delving too deep into the case. His partner is the dead man’s friend and a loose cannon. Police corruption is uncovered and the entire investigation seems to be motivated by department politics. After countless cop films and TV series like NYPD Blue it’s hard to find anything original in the above scenario. However, the film partly redeems itself with its gritty look and feel. Ray Liotta is also in good form, although he always seems to play the same character.
