Tom Hardy (Bruce Willis) is a fifth generation Pittsburgh cop. Formerly a homicide detective, he publicly challenged the police department, including several of his family members, about the identity of the serial killer who took his father's life. Convinced that a newly active serial killer is the same gunman who murdered his father - despite the fact that another man is already behind bars for that crime - Hardy is working out of his jurisdiction to catch the killer. The maverick cop finds himself at odds with his new partner (Sarah Jessica Parker) as he skirts around the system and defies his uncle (Dennis Farina), his father's successor as the Chief of Homicide. A high-powered, suspenseful drama with mind-blowing action, Striking Distance is Bruce at his wisecracking best. Just to let you know, we have imported this product from Sweden - do not worry though, it plays in English, just like the UK version, but just contains optional Swedish subtitles!

Striking Distance is great action flick that sees Willis as an honest cop (Tom Hardy) within a not so honest cop family. He is forced to give evidence against a family member detective resulting in the force and family to turn their backs on him. Hardy ends up as river cop patrolling the waters ways when he finds a string of dead body's who had some significants in his life. Teaming up with a new partner Sarah Jessica Parker, they set out on an unauthorised investigation to catch the murderer.
There are some fantastic action scenes in this film, one in particular with a massive car car chase at the beginning which I concider to be one of the best. I love a good car chase and even have a best of list: The Italian Job, Ronin, The Rock, Bad Boys 2, The Dead Pool and The Rookie. On top of the car chase we have some brilliant boat chases and some quite chilling murder scenes which are pretty graphic. Dare I say it, but this film feels bit like a modern Hitchcock movie. That may sound a bit silly but the ways it's filmed, the way the suspence builds and the music score made me think of it as that. It a very solid murder mystery story with a good cast.Read more ›
Willis' disgraced cop-turned-river patrolman doesn't exactly show much in the way of emotion or remorse when his numerous ex-girlfriends keep on turning up dead for him to find in Pittsburgh's Three Rivers while Sarah Jessica Parker phones in her how does-she-get-the-work performance (well, by wearing tight dresses and sticking her chest out is my guess) and the killer comes on like Jay Leno with a badge on acid but the rest of the cast are good value for money, with a nice all-too-brief turn from John Mahoney as Willis' cop father (actually, most of the cops in the movie are relatives) that plays like a more amiable dress rehearsal for his role in Frasier. Sad to see Andre Breugher, so good in Glory so wasted here as an IAD prosecutor.
Only a trailer by wayt of extras on the DVD, and not even that on the Blu-ray release.
