Product Description

When narcotics detective Eugene Mack McCanick (David Morse, THE GREEN MILE) discovers that Simon Weeks (Cory Monteith, "Glee") has been released from prison, he instigates a brutal manhunt, without permission from the Chief of Police (Ciaran Hinds, THERE WILL BE BLOOD). The frenzy of paranoia and violence that follows pushes Mack and his partner to the edge of the law. The closer Mack gets to his prey, the closer he gets to a secret from his past - one that only Weeks can expose.

Review

"A taut, well-executed thriller" --Twitch

A gritty action thriller that will keep you guessing until the end...David Morse is brilliant. --Toronto Film Scene

A must-see. David Morse s performance is perfection... Cory Monteith delivers all the way. --The Art Scene

Customer Reviews

It's a twisted story.
Lola
As a script/story goes, this never really raises to the level of interesting and the numerous flashbacks only underscore the weakness of same.
Richardson
Maybe, i just watched it on a bad day or maybe the movie was not that good after all.

A very solid performance by Cory Monteith and he delivers a twist that you didn't see coming. The best scenes are whenever David Morse and Cory Monteith are on screen together. Really wished Ciaran Hinds was utilized more....

Best bad cop movie I've seen in awhile. David Morse and Cory Monteith were fantastic. Great chemistry. You will love this movie.

Eugene McCanick (David Morse) is an unlikeable Philadelphia cop who has a bad relationship with his son and everyone else on the planet. He has no trouble lying to his partner. When Simon Weeks (Cory Monteith) gets paroled, McCanick is told to stay away from him which lasts for two scenes.

The film consists of McCanick attempting to find Weeks through young male prostitutes, of which Weeks was one. The movie is told with flashbacks to amplify the lies of our main character. I watched the film not knowing where it was going through boring action and drama scenes, hoping the film would make sense and redeem itself. Unfortunately, once I had figured out what I was watching, I couldn't wait for it to end. Sorry. No spoilers.

Not my cup of poison.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

I really wanted to like this movie, I love thrillers and police thrillers even better and I've been a fan of David Morse for as long as he's been acting....so to see him in a lead was exciting for me.

Sadly, other than his performance, this movie is a mess and a boring mess at that. The title of my review refers to a line said to our protagonist Eugene McCanick after a pathetic one man stand..... and it's obviously a reference to "The French Connection" which in the making of the film makers claim is an inspiration. Let me get this on the record, comparing this film to "The French Connection" is like comparing the Albuquerque Dukes to the New York Yankees!

As a script/story goes, this never really raises to the level of interesting and the numerous flashbacks only underscore the weakness of same. As far as the film itself, it looks amateurish..... flat contrast and featuring a distinct yellow/green cast in some sort of attempt to hide the cheap stock I suppose or be artsy.... ultimately it looks as bad as the script. There is a reason that this script sat in a drawer for over a decade ... it isn't good, original or in any way interesting or involving.

I am not a Glee fan so I can't compare the gentleman who had a smaller role or relate his performance to his more well known role... I know he's passed away and that he may be more of interest to folks than this movie and it may be a curiosity for that alone. He was fine in his performance but given the overall "who cares" script .. his talent was wasted as was Mr Morse. They were surrounded for the most part by amateurish actors.... this thing just stinks. As I paid only ten bucks for the blu ray I can't give it a 1 star.... but please don't waste your money....

McCanick is an odd movie. It is neither great nor bad, it's just "eh". David Morse to some is from St. Elsewhere. Since I've never watched the program, to me he's always been a cop. Whether he was a good or bad cop depended on the situation.

In McCanick, Morse, playing the title character is obsessed with putting away Simon Weeks (Cory Monteith) after his release from prison. So obsessed with doing that, McCanick accidently shoots his partner Floyd (Mike Vogel of Under the Dome [HD] fame) and eventually blames Weeks for the shooting.

McCanick's boss, Jerry Quinn (Ciaran Hinds Caesar of Rome fame) has issues with McCanick's fixation on putting Weeks away.

In some ways it's a thought providing movie. There's some action but mostly it just moves along at its own pace.

David Morse plays Eugene "Mac" McCannick. It's Mac's 59th birthday and although Mac seems respected, he seems - to put it mildly - like more than a bit of a dick. He yells at his boss. He snarks at his partner. He is estranged from his family. His life is his job, and though he seems to have done alright there, his lack of social skills has clearly kept him from "the bars on his chest" that his father told him were the only thing worth having.

Then, Cory Monteith is released from prison and Mac goes on a one-man dragnet to find this guy, who was obviously framed. For those of you who may not know it, Monteith is the late actor who played a homosexual character on Glee. The homosexual angle becomes important in this movie as we watch Mac work male prostitutes to locate Monteith's character - who has a very small role in this flick. Eventually, we learn that the reason for Mac's obsession is that Monteith's character knows his secret, although we are maybe thirty minutes ahead of guessing what the "secret" might be.

There are several problems with the movie. First, Mac is an unlikeable person doing unlikeable things for unlikeable reasons. That trinity is largely a death-spell for caring about a character or a movie. Second, the movie is forced along by odd, random, unexplained plot developments. For example, out of nowhere we find Morse and his boss, Ciaran Hinds, who is woefully underused in this movie, sitting in Hinds' car discussing a major plot reveal. How did he get to the car? Doesn't matter because we needed that plot reveal at that time or the movie would have collapsed under its own weight.
