  • A no-bull throwback to 1970s action films. It zips along with B-movie verve while adding the rich details and go-for-broke acting that heralds something special. show more

  • Patric and Liotta get the chance to do some heavy riffing on themes of honor, sacrifice, selling out and self-destructing, and the bleak, smeared world of drugs and violence is brought to the fore with feverish style. show more

  • The investigation itself must remain undescribed here. But its ending is a neat and ironic exercise in poetic justice. show more
