Very fun yet dark action flick
The movie follows Peter Weller who plays an attorney tasked with defending a crack dealer who shot a corrupt police officer in self defense. He goes to his friend in the NYPD, played by Sam Elliot, to unravel a deep web of conspiracy and corruption within the NYPD. In the meantime, Weller is caught in a love triangle between his fiancé and ex-girlfriend.

Weller does a decent job as well as Sam Elliot, but the star of the movie was 1980s New York City. It’s decadent and gritty landscape make for some great atmosphere and over-the-top action involving hit men, drug dealers, and one of the most beautiful Porsche 930 Turbos you would ever lay eyes on. Action sequences, when they occur, are thrilling and fun.

Alas, the love-triangle scenes keep the sequences spaced out, so things can seem kind of slow. Those scenes really feel more like padding rather than essential to the plot. Still, it’s a movie I enjoy watching time and time again. I know the gentrification of New York by Giuliani in the 90s made it cleaner and safer, but it also stripped the soul of 70s and 80s New York and turned it into a lifeless shell of a city you can find just about anywhere else in the US. It’s always nice to see old school NYC encapsulated whenever possible.

All in all, I love this movie. No, it’s not the most deep or meaningful movie, and the supporting actors turn out some pretty cheesy moments (like a group of cops circling around Weller and then just walking away), but the dark and gritty atmosphere gives it life and is a fun movie to just sit back and relax to.
