Editorial Reviews

A mind-bending, suspense thriller of gang crime, political corruption and personal betrayal. Ray Liotta stars as Ford Cole, a big-city district attorney with his eye on the mayor's office and a big problem on his hands. One of his deputies, the beautiful assistant district attorney, Nora Timmer, has just confessed to killing a man in what she claims was self-defense. A bad situation gets worse when an enigmatic stranger named Luther Pinks (LL Cool J) turns up at the police station to contradict Nora's story and paint a very different picture of Ford's talented colleague. With his career and perhaps his life on the line, Ford has a mere handful of hours to sort the truth from the lies.

Customer Reviews

It was entertaining, nice pace and action/drama.
Wiseguy 945
Anyway, the movie is just okay, although entertaining, and will keep you wondering who's who until the end.
Ashe B. Exum
Acting was wooden and the plot developed far too slowly and incoherently for me to care.

I missed this one in the theaters, but now got the chance to get it on DVD. Not bad. Ray Liotta plays a District attourny Ford Cole in the middle of a campaign for mayor when crisis hits. His beautiful Assistant DA, Jolene Blalock, gets caught up in a "self defense" killing at her appartment. How is this going to reflect on the DA, will it hurt his Campaingn against crime, particularly organized crime. The film takes off from there, having plenty of twists and turns, but this DA finds himself in a struggle with time and in a confusing game tracking down what actually happened this night at his assistant DA's appartment...and it has connections to what he always wanted, the Kingpin crime lord.
It was entertaining, nice pace and action/drama. Nudity/sex scenes not really needed and overdone, and I caught on to what the ending would be about midway through, but the story was good enough to keep me drawn in just to make sure I was right. Check this one out, another overlooked film with Ray Liotta, who had another good film a couple years back with "controll" that had a short theater life. If you say that film, than this one you'll like as well.

Format: DVD
it is a cop action movie that feels like a open ended mystery (the audience doesn't know who did it and has to figure it out as the main character does).
It has several interesting and, to me, unexpected twists. Worth watching as closely as you would to Columbo or Perry Mason, not shallowly like a strictly action genre.
I appreciated this, these twists and false rabbit holes, it not only kept the movie moving and interesting but were deep enough that i missed several, a real treat.

I hope that the world isn't like the movie, that our cities aren't built by people like this with such greedy motivations, but as i get older, i wonder more and hope less for the good to triumph.

Format: DVD
Filmed in 2003 but kept on the shelf until now, "Slow Burn" is a so-so film noir that includes plenty of bewildering twists. Screenwriter-director Wayne Beach directorial debut keeps things moving at a steady pace while managing to generate a reasonable amount of suspense every now and then. The story focuses on committed District Attorney Ford Cole (Ray Liotta), whose potential mayoral career is on the line after his assistant D.A. and lover Nora Timmer (Jolene Blalock) becomes involved in the murder of Isaac Duperde (Mekhi Phifer), a local CD vendor who she claims attempted to rape her. The case, however, grows more mysterious with the sudden appearance of Luther Pinks (LL Cool J), a close friend of the victim who assures Cole that Isaac and Nora were in fact lovers, and that she persuaded him to reveal the whereabouts of an elusive criminal gang lord. With time running out, it is now up to Cole to uncover the truth if he wants to save his career.

After watching this I personally thought Beach overloads his plot (from a story by himself and Anthony Walton) with successive twists that are too confusing to follow, thus destroying the credibility of his characters. The mystery elements of the story never really gel, and its much more confusing than it has to be. This is especially true considering the fact that the end of the movie is pretty much given away in the middle of the film, and I was sitting there waiting for my guess to pan out... which it did. They did, however, switch it up on me a few times with some red herrings here and there. It's still fun to watch, but some tighter writing would have put the film over the top.

The best parts of the movie are the concepts and philosophies dealing with race that are present in the film.

You realize that you truely have no idea who is who. Who's telling the truth? How did the DA end up with a dead man in her bed? Who is Nora really? Who is Danny? Whats 5am? Slow burn has so many twist and so many rabbits chasing the carrot that you'll be glued to the screen until the end trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Definately worth watching!!
