It's high-voltage thrills as hot X-FILES star David Duchovny and new big-screen bad boy Timothy Hutton (BEAUTIFUL GIRLS) square off in an edgy confrontation where the stakes are high ... and the action is deadly! Duchovny plays Dr. Eugene Sands, an ex-surgeon lured into a dark underworld by a hip -- but lethal -- mob boss (Hutton) in need of some unorthodox medical assistance. Before long, Sands is "playing God" -- caught in a web of murder and mayhem, and growing far too close to the mobster's seductive mistress, played by sexy Angelina Jolie (GONE IN 60 SECONDS). It's a potent action thriller where passion and deception meet in a battle between good and evil!
After his bloody showdown with Brad Pitt's psychopathic redneck in Kalifornia, David Duchovny used an off-season hiatus from The X-Files to star in this 1997 thriller, in which he plays a doctor whose fall from professional grace leads to a dangerous career in the criminal underworld. Having lost his license after drug abuse caused him to lose a patient during surgery, he's recruited into his illegal career by a slimy but charismatic millionaire (Timothy Hutton) whose associates have a way of getting shot all the time. Before long, Duchovny comes to realize the extent of Hutton's evil, and he finds himself caught in a criminal trap that also involves an alluring femme fatale (Angelina Jolie) and a Faustian bargain that could cost him his life. The plot's rather absurd and fairly predictable, but fine performances by Duchovny and especially Hutton (who makes a memorable screen villain) make this stylish thriller intriguingly worthwhile. The DVD includes the original theatrical trailer. --Jeff Shannon

Action thriller with all you could ask for: An aggressive drug dealer, his body-guards and an ex-surgeon; How much fun would it be to kill some one...twice...or not?
Serious & comedic violence, a little homosexuality on the down-low, drugs, an undercover conspiracy or two... or three and some kissing (but nothing more) with Angelina Jolie. Michael Massey played "Fun Boy" in The Crow.
This is a ride that takes you away and the sound track is awesome.
All and all, (with the audio on WOW) the price was well worth the cost. I recommend.
