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.

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.

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!!

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 (!).

"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.

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.

This is a pretty good action film and includes chase scenes, a beautiful woman and yes, some character development. I would have rated it five stars, but there are two problems. First, a major plot hole: when the cousin jumps off the bridge, there is no mention of a search for the body or funeral. Second, as a native Pittsburgher, I was very disappointed that not one person spoke Pittsburghese, the dialect spoken in western Pennsylvania. You would think the movie producers would have studied this and had the characters speak with a Pittsburgh accent. You know, "Should I park on the norside or dahntahn before going to the Stillers game against the Iggles?" On the other hand, there are many great shots of Pittsburgh.

it's an earlier Bruce Willis movie. What more can I say. His best movies (I believe) are in his past. His recent movies seem destined to go directly to DVD. Bruce plays a police officer that is chasing a serial killer over a period of years. After some professional and personal disasters, he is relegated to boat captain at the harbor patrol. After a period of quiet time from the serial killer, Bruce discovers that the killer is back and making attempts to involve him in the hunt for the killer. The ending is surprising. Excellent police and bad guy action movie.
