Product Description

Blair (Mario Van Peebles) and Ethan (Zach Galligan) are two rookie cops who arrive at the scene of a reported robbery, and find themselves caught in a bloody shoot-out. Panicking, Ethan freezes, and two cops are shot dead. But Blair covers for his partner, saving his life and his reputation. Nine years later, Blair has sunk into crime and corruption and needs the help of his old partner, but as he descends further into paranoia and madness, murder seems like the only solution.

From the Back Cover

Rookie cops Blair and Ethan arrive at the scene of a reported robbery to find themselves caught in the crossfire of a deadly shootout. Froxen with fear, Ethan looks on as two fellow cops are gunned down. Blair is the only witness and covers for his partner, saving both Ethan's life and reputation.

Nine years later and finally it's payback time. Now Blair is in trouble. A cop whose maverick approach to law enforcement has taken him all the way to the top, his career is under threat. His only chance of saving it is to steal the evidence that implicated him in a shady business deal and he wants Ethan to help him pull off the heist.

But things go badly wrong and suddenly Blair is on a murderous rampage. Gripped by paranoia, he trusts no-one and no-one is safeleast of all his old partner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power-packed thirll ride, intense, funny and fabulous 19 Feb 2001
By "cinemaenthooze" - Published on Amazon.com
Up until the end of this turbo-feuled film I was wondering who was going to make it, who was going to get whom!?! The story of a bad cop with little time left and what he finds he is capable of made me wonder to what lengths a human being will go to validate his life choices before dying. Mario Van Peebles gives his best performance since New Jack City in this intense triangle tale of a man, his ex-partner and his beautiful girlfriend (a stunning and revealing Nicolette Sheridan)and survival of the fittest. A must see (especially since Sheridan has a lot to show off... fast forward to the love scene!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Cop Corruption of Another Kind . . . WOW!: Shocked&Impressed 26 Jan 2003
By Sista TeeBiscuit - Published on Amazon.com
Viewed this just yesterday and I have to have it for myself on DVD. This is "Internal Affairs" & "The Corruptor" combined, but taken to another level--this movie (as unethical, debased, avaricious, secular, materialistic, brutal and downright sinister as it is) was entertaining, gripping, powerful, fast-paced, bold, funny and educational. Educational from a criminal or subjective point of view. The main character did lots of foolish and crazy things, but you may also come to realize he was pretty intelligent, nimble and brazen. Not a movie to be viewed by kids, but great adult action and entertainment. Mario van Peebles gave a superb performance...and he's not at all one of my favorite actors. If not for the wayward, perverse and twisted nature of this movie, you would have heard more about this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Raw Nerve/Carlita's Secret 16 April 2012
By unmarked - Published on Amazon.com
[[ASIN:B00003O03R Raw Nerve] I would like to thank amazon for the timely delivery of the two DVD set of "Raw Nerve" and "Carlita's Secret". It was a great value for the price. I only had one proble with the them. Both DVD's are unrated, but in Raw Nerve the love scene between Mario Van Peebles and Nicollette Sheridan is cut to almost nothing. Other than that I enjoyed both of them. Thank you once again.
