Editorial Reviews

A sexy, stylish thriller stars Ray Liotta 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 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 in a saga involving Nora, a record store clerk, and a powerful gang lord.

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.

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.

"Slow Burn" is as easy on the brain as an escapist dime store crime novel; the kind you read on vacation while laying on a beach in the tropics sipping a sweet rum drink you wouldn't be caught dead holding in your favorite bar. Filled with twists, turns, good guys, bad guys, and one mastermind in charge of it all, it keeps your attention from beginning to end as it fillets one red herring after another. None of the actors had to stretch to play their roles as each presented a noir monotone character that leaves you believing each knows more than they're telling. The music score is perfect for this film. The sex is cheap and easy, the kind you know too well is going to lead to trouble but can't resist. At no time do you know exactly who is pulling the strings so you keep watching.

"Slow Burn" isn't a great film, but it's a great example of exactly what it was intended to be; a dime store crime novel revealed at 24 frames per second. The first time I saw it I thought it was a one-watch movie, but it grows on you. Don't be surprised if it ends up one your widescreen time and time again when you're in the mood for something dark and gritty. It delivers on both levels.

The DVD images are almost Blu-ray sharp, presented in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio to fill a widecreen HDTV. The Dolby 5.1 sound is exceptional. The price of a perfectly good used copy is pennies plus shipping, exactly what you need to pay to fully enjoy the movie.

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!!
