On her first day of the job, brand new Internal Affairs detective, Jessica Dawson (Mena Suvari), gets caught up in the aftermath of a violent drug bust that includes an officer shooting of an innocent young teenager. The facts, as reported by the two narcotic detectives, just don't seem to add up. As she struggles to find the truth, the ramifications of a single lie reverberate throughout the whole precinct. Soon she finds she can't trust anyone, including the precinct captain (Martin Sheen). In this gritty crime thriller that could be ripped from today's headlines, it's cop vs. cop in a deadly fight for honor. Written by
Jennifer Love Hewitt was attached to play the role of Jessica Dawson, but had to drop out after learning she was pregnant. The role went to Mena Suvari. See more »
While "framing" the dead kid at the start of the movie, the officer first puts the boys finger prints onto the gun, going as far as to fire 2 shots using the boys hand and impregnating it with gunpowder residue, then proceeds to wipe those prints from the gun again, applying his own prints by throwing it onto the floor with his own uncovered hand. So in the end the gun has only the officers prints on it. See more »
Another 'corrupt cop' movie but not a terrible one.
All the scenes in the movie and the story,u would have seen it all before, most of the time done better than how it's done in this movie. But still this movie is very watchable and had some interesting parts. The acting in this movie is solid too. Not award material but for what they are given,i think the actors have done a very good job. Lochyln Munro ,especially,was really good in his role. He seemed so involved and committed to his role and it shows in his performance. The director could have directed his scenes better though and maybe build a little more character arc for him. And they could have also used Martin Sheen more. I didn't like the climax much as it seemed rushed but other than that i think it's a good enough movie that u can rent and watch or if u happen to catch this movie on TV,it's worth spending some free time on.
