Customer Review

on 14 October 2002
Perhaps there are people who look at this film and think, "Oh no, Richard Gere!" This movie will defy your expectations. Gere has never been better - his portrayal of corrupt cop Denis Peck is the backbone of this excellent thriller. Peck moves easily from accepting backhanders to developing a nice sideline in contract killing, all the while trumpeting the values of a family man. It is Gere's skill to play with both sides of this monster, but he is not alone in acting ability. Take a look a the scene where Andy Garcia as Raymond Avilar is introduced to Internal Affairs by his new boss - Garcia doesn't say a word, but his intense disgust at his boss's corporate doublespeak is conveyed by a single, piercing look. Laurie Metcalfe, as Garcia's new partner, also gives a measured performance that works to accentuate the differences between Peck and Avilar.
In all, this criminally overlooked film should be a must-see for anyone who relishes well-acted, well-crafted entertainment.
