I was really looking forward to this because
it has a great cast, but it's a bit disappointing. Aldis
Hodge plays a new D.A. in Boston, in the early 90's, named
DeCourcy Ward. The police hate him because he was previously
working on the infamous case of Matthew Stuart, who claimed
that black guys killed his pregnant case while they were
driving through a black area. The police believed him and
treated people in that area poorly as they searched for
evidence. Ward made a public statement that some of the
police should gone to jail.
Kevin Bacon is fantastic
as a corrupt FBI investigator, Jackie Rohr. He and Ward team
up to catch some violent bank robbers. As you can see, part
of this is based on real-life 90's history. It's a bit slow,
and a little heavy-handed, but it's a compelling drama. The
acting is very good, especially from the two stars.
There are some very good features that come
with the DVD that you may enjoy. I did.
