A Florida police chief must solve a vicious double homicide before he himself falls under suspicion.
Suspenseful crime thriller with an impossibly construed plot that it's only credulity by Denzel Washington's performance of a corrupt cop we're supposed to like.
Halliwell (no star): "Unoriginal thriller, given a classier treatment than it merits."
Maltin**: "This film noir wannabe would have been made effortlessly in the 1940 and '50s but seems heavy-handed and overly contrived here. Lathan is a fine femme fatale but Washington is the last person you's cast as a patsy."
