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.

Customer Reviews

Poorly written with little story content.
Willard M. Jefferson,Jr
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
No time wasted writing dialog for this one; they just throw in the big F when they have nothing to say.

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.

Cory Monteith's final performance in this gritty drama showed that he had so much more to give as an actor had he not been taken from us too soon.

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....
