This s a film I had previously never heard of, probably not released here, or straight to dvd only. It deserves a better showing, as it is not at all bad. It does have a cool feel about it, as if it is going to be better than it actually is. I agree with another reviewer that the Phoenix setting has no relevance, as it could be anywhere. Ray Liotta, who sadly never improved on his finest hour in 'Goodfellas', does his best with a formulaic role, and is well supported by the rest of the cast, many of whom are visibly much better actors. Don't let all the criticism put you off though. At a good price that won't break anyone's bank,if you are a fan of cop thrillers, or of any of the cast, you won't go wrong with this film.
