Product Description

Tom Hardy (Bruce Willis) is demoted from homicide detective to River Rescue Patrol after challenging his superiors. Hardy believes that his father was murdered by a serial killer, not the man the police convicted. When the killer begins operating again two years later, Hardy sets out to track him down - much to the disapproval of his uncle (Dennis Farina), who is now Chief of Homicide.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bruce Willis at his wise cracking best! 26 Feb 2001
This is a movie which sees Bruce Willis back to his Die Hard wise cracking antics. He plays a former cop who is now a river rescue officer, and when a serial killer who had killed his father, begins murdering his former girlfriends, he is caught up in the investigations. Overall a good action movie that you should see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid thriller 12 Nov 2009
Bruce in classic cop mode plays a detective who gets busted to the river police after a murder investigation goes wrong and his dad and cousin die. A man goes to prison for the murders but Bruce is not convinced and won't let it go. Skip forward two years and he's now a functioning alcoholic with a hot new partner in the shape of a young Sarah Jessica Parker (oh yes she was once!) and bodies start turning up in his stretch of the water that suggests the killer is back and with a personal agenda as the victims are linked to Bruce. This is not a 'Die Hard' but it has a reasonable amount of exciting chases and action. The picture quality is good and full screen, only stand out point on the soundtrack was at the policeman's ball where the fireworks start off screen and you hear them behind you in a surround sound set up. Definitely worth a 7/10.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good action 9 July 2010
Good action/police film from Bruce Willis. There are better films in this style, but the action is consistent, the cast is good and the story decent enough. A must for Bruce Willis fans.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm suprised that i am only the second person to give this a 5 star rating but i honestly enjoyed it, i've seen it at least 4 times so surely that shows that it is a good film somewhere along the lines.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable but enjoyable. 15 Feb 2012
Formulaic, predictable, average, yet enjoyable action thriller. I'm sure most were expecting another Die Hard type film when this came out, but this is a lot more laid back in comparison and whilst nowhere near as good, shouldn't be forgotten. Willis suits his role as a disgraced alcoholic, former homicide detective who has a serial killer who is pulling him into a cat and mouse game whilst the rest of the Pittsburgh police department believes the (innocent) man they have already arrested is responsible. It's quite obvious from the start who the killer is but there is some fun in getting there, including a fairly good car chase and a couple of decent gunfights. The humour is hit and miss throughout but is welcome to lighten the tone and the supporting cast are mostly impressive, especially Dennis Farina, Tom Sizemore and John Mahoney. Sarah Jessica Parker is the weak link, but is better than most would think. Overall, this is worthy of a high end rental. 3/5
