Movie Reviews

An excellent story about two cool Feds chasing a mail bomber
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This story about Postal Inspectors (one of the most elite and professional Federal Law Enforcement agencies, the United States Postal Inspection Service) chasing a mail bomber is based on a true incident. This story line was interesting, the lead actors were excellent, the direction and photography were top notch, and this movie makes you want to see and hear more about the Postal Inspectors. There was enough of the "personal" side of the the two lead Inspectors to make this better than the usual "cop" movie from that standpoint as well."
Postal Inspectors or FBI?
Biff Fearless | Cape Coral, FL USA | 02/15/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is an interesting movie that covers a law enforcement agency that I knew very little about. Lou Gossett is excellent here as the seasoned veteran saddled with the still wet behind the ears Johnathan Silverman. It also touches on a very real danger of the times, with letter bombs and terrorism. Though well acted, it cannot help but become a little campy. In my mind that is not a detriment as it reminds me a lot of the better done cop tv shows. It also lets the film be watched on multiple levels much like Dragnet (the tv series not the movie). The sequel is even better, delving into the frightening realm of identity fraud."
Bits of this/that make a fantastic movie
hmarsson | Denver, CO United States | 10/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First off, I'll admit that I bought this movie because my favorite actor plays the villain, but that's not why I keep watching it. Inspectors does an amazing job of pulling together all sorts of differing elements to make it so much more than just a mystery or an action flick. There is real depth and realism with the two leads being shown as actually having personal lives. There's also a bit of comedy to offset the crime scenes and despicable actions of the bad guys. The movie isn't very graphically violent. It hasn't been rated, but I would say that since the language isn't gratuitous and the movie doesn't have a front row seat to the effects of mail bombs on human anatomy, I'd let a 15 year old watch it with me. It's an outstanding movie with great re-viewing potential."
Finally! Postal Inspectors get noticed!

"I am a Postal Inspector wannabe and was excited when this movie came out. To say the least, I was not disappointed. Both Silverman and Gossett do a great job. The USPIS doesn't get much publicity but they do here in a true-to-life story."
