Storyline

In Bridgeport, Connecticut, Detective David 'Cal' Callahan is a family man, married to Alexandra with a teenage daughter, Lanie. Cal has an unscrupulous past, drug and alcohol addicted, and he was reborn when he was shot by a drug dealer and saved by a stranger. When a stranger meets Cal in a bar, he tells Cal that he was the one who saved him and gives the journal of his deceased daughter to Cal. He tells Cal that she committed suicide after she was beaten up and raped by Angel, a regular at the night-club where she danced, owned by the drug dealer Royce Walker. Cal investigates Angel and when he sees the man in his car in front of the school where Lanie studies, he believes that Angel is a pedophile and Cal decides to take action. But he finds that he is a marionette and someone is pulling the strings and watching him dance. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

not rocket science, but one of Dorff's better B movies...
29 April 2013 | by witster18See all my reviews

It's better than "Brake", and certainly more entertaining than "Somewhere".

I rented "Pawn" and "Officer Down" last night for a b-cop-double-feature. Pawn was alright, but Officer Down gets the nod out of the two for its' better acting across the board.

It marginally works as a character study.

The pacing is alright and the writing isn't half-bad.

The film needed a bit more interaction and back-story to the marriage/wife - which might have added some genuine drama. Really, that was the problem with both of these movies.

While this is a "b" movie, and I am rating it a 6(56/100), I'm not going to be adding to my "jeremy's B Movie marathon list". I don't know that I can give this my recommendation, but there are certainly worse options in the redbox.

The film has just enough surprises, and that 'better than usual' performance from the lead that makes this slightly better than average, and certainly better than most of the b-straight-to-DVD fair that's out there.
