Another B-cop drama about drug lords and guys with hooks.
2 April 2003 | by vertigo_14See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much more than a B-rated (or less) cop drama. An L.A. cop (Anthony Edwards) gets knee deep in mud and crayfish in New Orleans looking for the drug lord that killed his partner. There, he partners up with one of a former cop (Lance Henriksen) with a hook.

This movie was far too long and the story never really picks up. L.A. and Lousinana cop just go about roughing up their leads.

There are a few funny moments. While Edwards plays the loose, cocky L.A. Cop, Henriksen is a little like Robert Shaw's charater on Jaws. He's full of witty sarcasm and has his own local way doing things. And there's a running gag of Edwards always messing up his suit.

It is also speckled with bad acting from background characters. It might have played out better as a television show.

Look for the character, Forbes (after the flashback), the infamous drug lord. For the short while he is in the movie, it is not an actor, but a very obvious latex dummy. Why they just didn't get one of the camera men to get on a grey wig? At least they would have blinked.
