Movie Reviews

Another Interesting 'Neo Noir' From The '90s
Craig Connell | Lockport, NY USA | 02/06/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As grungy and hard-edged as this movie is, I still found a number of good things going for it that made the movie entertaining to watch. The story moves very fast, which tells you something.

As someone who loves narration, I enjoyed Laurence Fishburne's deep-voiced first-person narrating. He was smooth in this gritty 1990s film noir (neo-noir, as they call it) filled with hard-boiled characters, rough language and some brutal scenes wrapped around a drug story. The early '90s produced some fine neo-noirs.

However, as rough as that sounds, they don't overdo the violence but the profanity can make you wince at times. It also has the normal Liberal cheap shots against Republicans: this time George Bush Sr. (The major villain, a South American drug lord is pictured as a friend of Bush's. And, you also get the usual baloney of the U.S. Government and the DEA being bad guys. If that isn't enough, they also play the "race card" in here.

Yet, I still liked this film. At least they also took a shot at phony Liberals, who Jeff Goldblum's character portrays. Goldblum's "David Jason" actually had the best lines in the film, however. He is shown as morally-bankrupt atheist.

This movie is unusual in that the main character - Fishburne's "Russell Stevens" - goes from good guy to bad guy back to good guy! This is an intriguing, dark film."
