Our Score
Steven Seagal looks far from the svelte fast-moving hero he should be in this action drama. He plays Orin Boyd, a disgraced cop who is transferred to a tough inner-city precinct where he discovers his new colleagues are selling heroin to drug dealers. Seagal's comeback film, based on the novel by John Westermann, sees Warner Bros reunite many of the cast and crew of the equally disappointing Romeo Must Die, including director Andrzej Bartkowiak and producer Joel Silver. Seagal's performance is typically wooden, and the Toronto locations are hardly convincing as downtown Detroit. However, rapper DMX provides some relief from the usual Seagal shenanigans. The poster reads "This is gonna hurt", and indeed it does, for just under two hours.

Summary

A maverick cop, transferred to a tough new precinct, determines to make a difference to the lawless streets, but he comes to realise his fellow officers are even more corrupt than the local hoods - and are on the verge of completing a major drug deal. Thriller, starring Steven Seagal, Isaiah Washington and Tom Arnold.
