Editorial Reviews

Bruce Willis and Sarah Jessica Parker star in this mind-bending action mystery. Tom Hardy (Willis) is a maverick cop who's not afraid to rock the boat in pursuit of a sadistic serial killer. Demoted to river patrol after suggesting the killer may be a fellow police officer, he initiates an unauthorized investigation which kicks the high-powered plot into overdrive. His new partner (Parker) climbsaboard with a surprise of her own as the conspiracy closes around them for a wake-trailing drama about honor, loyalty and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Genre Gem September 22, 2007
Format:DVD
Bruce Willis at the peak of his action hero form playing a cynical hard-boiled cop trying to fight the system. A pre-Sex and the City Sarah Jessica Parker at the peak of her cuteness. Great character actors like Dennis Farina, Tom Sizemore, Brion James, John Mahoney, and Andre Braugher. Superb on location cinematography shot by Mac Ahlberg in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a cool genre score by Brad Fiedel (love that saxaphone love theme) and on the mark (and wonderfully over the top) direction by Rowdy Herington of Road House fame. Striking Distance is a nice little hard boiled action gem that seems to be slowly gaining a nice little cult following. For fans of 80's and 90's action films, this is a movie worth seeking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars HUH? April 7, 2004
Format:DVD
I was really surprised by the number of negative reviews of this movie. Granted, STRIKING DISTANCE, is not one of Bruce's best films, but I found it to be solidly entertaining, cliches and all. And I think it had some very good twists that I didn't see coming. I found the whole cast, (even (...)Sarah Jessica Parker) to be commendable in their roles. Special kudos to Robert Pastorelli, Dennis Farina and Tom Sizemore. I wanted to be entertained and STRIKING DISTANCE certainly filled the bill for me!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Striking Distance April 24, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Bruce Willis is Pittsburgh cop Thomas Hardy, a former homicide detective who believes his cousin is in the center of the case he is investigating. When Hardy and his sexy new river patrol partner (Sarah Jessica Parker) discover a series of women floating dead in the Ohio River, Hardy begins to believe his cousin, an ex-police officer, is the serial killer, and the whole story goes back to his mysterious family past... Directed by Rowdy Herrington. Pretty good movie, but Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, and other movies like that beat this. Worth seeing (!).

5.0 out of 5 stars all BRUCE all the time February 1, 2010
By JGC
Format:DVD
"Striking Distance" is one of Bruce Willis' very best cop movies. In this picture he plays a 5th generation Pittsburgh cop who is demoted to water patrol (or as Tom Hardy calls it in the movie "water dog") after initiating an investigation into police brutality. I enjoyed this movie very much because Bruce was thrilling and exciting and the entire story is very fast-paced with many twists and turns. "Striking Distance" is both an action movie as well as a high-impact thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. This is the ultimate game of cat and mouse but as any Bruce Willis fan knows very well, this man doesn't play well with others. I can't tell you what happens but I can tell you that if you enjoyed Bruce Willis before you will like him even more after you watch this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good yarn November 15, 2001
Format:DVD
Not great "literaure," as it were, but an engaging action yarn as entertainment. Good, complex and well executed vehicle chases. Restrained murder violence, which is more suggested than seen (good, in my book). A rather captivating leading lady (Sarah Jessica Parker). Some good character acting, e.g. the byplay between Willis and his policeman father at the beginning of the film before Dad gets offed. Much location shooting in Pittsburgh, you really get a sense of those rivers.
Hey, it's only an entertainment. I didn't go to sleep during this one. Nil extras on the DVD, though, only a trailer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fully entertaining..! June 16, 2005
By M Bardi
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great movie, there is nothing you can not like in this movie.

Bruce willis as well as the rest of the cast did a good job in this movie with very good acting, the plot is also entertaining with some twists in it, the whole thing about how all the family members of Bruce are cops is just cool, reminded me a little of cop land (town of cops), but this movie is even better than cop land.

Tom sizemore performance was also noticable, even Sarah jessica parker was good here.

currently, i only own a VHS copy of the movie, but if any one have not seen it yet, my advice is to buy the DVD because this movie is worth it and is FULLY ENTERTAINING !

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable But Lazy July 18, 2007
Format:DVD
There are two mysteries to "Striking Distance" (1993) which drive this movie and provide the character motivation; as things build toward a climax (and only ten minutes remain to wrap everything up) you know that two has to be one-that the same thing will be the answer to both questions because not enough time remains to untangle two "different" sets of misdirection.

Of course first-time viewers applying first-class logical reasoning skills will never guess the answer, because someone (presumably the writers) cheats at the end and introduces the deus ex machina device. Dating back to Greek tragedy, deus ex machina is when an artificial character is suddenly introduced to untangle a hopelessly contrived plot. Looking back for clues to the involvement of this character you realize that there are none and that the writers have intentionally kept the audience ignorant, a cheap way to surprise the viewer, the drawback being that the technique makes it impossible to inject even the tiniest bit of suspense into the viewing process. What clues there are were inserted just to jerk the viewer around.

They cheat again with another of those stupid villain resurrection fight sequences at the very end. You know this tired stuff, show evidence that the villain could not possibly have escaped then have him Jason-like magically surface alive and kicking. The sad part being that it doesn't work (which must have been obvious during the editing process), it is totally unnecessary, and it could have been seamlessly trimmed out during post-production. Lose those moronic 20 seconds and you could add about 10 IQ points to the target audience.

That said, it is otherwise an entertaining film. Bruce Willis plays a trouble-making Pittsburgh cop named Hardy and.... big surprise....
