"If you can follow my title than you want this DVD!!!!! RDA is excellent. The good cop/bad cop cliche works VERY well in this story. RDA plays Jack Rourke, a cop who was arrested years ago under false charges, was cleared but has never been able to shake the fact that he never gets promoted. He can't hold a relationship with anyone. Then he meets a murder witness with a HUGE story behind her also. He spends the vast majority of the film deciding whether he will actually break the law and system that have been unfair to him or keep on the right side. The movie is great and would have to be one of Richard's best works."

"This movie was well done for what it was. Unfortunately, the scriptwriter (my relative) had written a much darker, tighter and meaner script. The script was supposed to be filmed by a company we will refer to as "X". Unfortunately "X" tanked and the flick, which was supposed to be a big-screen production, was passed on to the CBS network. And that's when the changes were made...Lynn's character was meaner, the deafness thing was better integrated, Jack was unredeemable and the ending was...well, very unhappy. But you can't cast Richard Dean Anderson as a bad guy. And, oooh, Justine Bateman is too cute to be a really bad girl. And hey, we're CBS, so you can't HAVE that dark ending...and...well, I hope you get the idea...by the time the executives finished rearranging, cutting and tweaking, this is the product you had left. Can't help wondering what it might have looked like with real Hollywood treatment and less interference from the investors...."

"I actually only bought this dvd because Im a huge Macgyver fan. This was RDA's post Macgyver film. I paid a buck for it off here and it's all it's worth.
I fell asleep half way though as it's a boring. Bascially Macgyver has to babysit justine bateman and starts to fall in love with her, and he gets shot in the process, movie over.
It's plot is pretty typical and boring, I was expecting Dana Elcar to pop up and pull Mac outta a jam... but was disapointed."
