Editorial Reviews

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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cory Monteith goes far against type February 28, 2014
By heather
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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....

2.0 out of 5 stars Who do you think you are? Popeye Doyle? May 29, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
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....

3.0 out of 5 stars David Morse Shows Again 'How to be a Cop' August 5, 2014
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars JERRY LEWIS IS NOT RANDOM January 10, 2014
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good movie...from what I could watch of it.... September 21, 2014
By Kathy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I gave this 1 star not because I didn't like the movie. From what I COULD watch of it, it seemed pretty good. It was at the most climactic part of the movie, however, when the movie began to skip, then freeze, then it would go back to the main menu. Thinking it was just a faulty disc, I ordered the movie again. I got the second movie yesterday and the exact same thing happened! I guess for $8 you get what you pay for. I have purchased this movie from a different company and have returned the two faulty ones. Again, nothing wrong with the movie itself. I am a Glee fan and Corey Monteith was my favorite on the show. I was saddened to hear of his passing, so when I learned he had made this movie just before his death, I wanted to check it out. Can't wait to watch the remainder of the film once I get a working copy.

Before I purchase a movie I usually read what it's about and technically it is accurate but at the end of the day it's not the cops and robbers thriller I was looking for. I was actually very disappointed and saw what my eyes did not want to see David Morse do. I don't recommend this movie if your looking for a cop who's trying to find justice. It's a twisted story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top performances by Morse and Monteith. July 31, 2014
By Iridium
Format:DVD
If you are a crime and thriller fan, then this movie is for you. Especially if you like tragic and bittersweet, which is what makes this movie excellent in my opinion.Watch is twice to get all the details and timeline straight. I have added this to my DVD collection because of the performances by Morse and Monteith.
