Decent cop thriller… but not as good as The Last Boy Scout
Although this film is not a classic, you’ll love this if you enjoyed Bruce in The Last Boy Scout, Hudson Hawk or the Die Hard Movies as he basically plays the same character. A down on his luck cop who kicks ass as hard as he hits the bottle.
Bruce stars as Tom Hardy, a Pittsburgh city cop who gets busted down to working on a police pursuit boat as he testified against his partner. His ex girlfriends keep getting murdered and dumped in the river – he knows that someone is doing this to frame him but who? This movie has an excellent car chase and some cool lines from Bruce plus some very good set piece action scenes. There are also some very good supporting performances from Tom Sizemore and a very crazy Robert Pastorelli.
I picked this up on DVD from ebay and was surprised by how good it looked on a large widescreen TV – I was only a kid when this was released so never saw it at the cinema. Good cinematography of the rushing river and the bridge. Definitely worth checking out.
“Who’s the best cop now Jimmy??”
cool movie Bruce!
Actually watched this on a bus ride home. Found myself entertained for once! Bruce Willis plays good cop Tom Hardy, who’s convinced the police killed his dad and framed some poor sap. He opens his big mouth too often and they demote him to river duty! Tom is still on the job and now he’s partnered with sexy diver Jo (Sarah Jessica Parker). They keep finding dead women and Tom realizes the killer is toying with him!
Tom and Jo hook up, and I actually found their romance quite charming, has SJP ever been bad in anything? She’s a really good actress and looks great in this, and try to actually solve the murders, which angers his uncle, played by the underrated Dennis Farina. Even the chief, a ogre of a cop played by the terrific late character actor Brion James, just wants Tom to stay quiet. His cousin Jimmy, I couldn’t believe that was Robert Pastorelli, the guy from “Murphy Brown” he was totally dissolved into the part, just seems like a wise-ass, but watch him.
The film is well paced and nicely shot, I liked that the Ohio river seemed smelly like in real life. Willis actually bothers to act here, though I understand he didn’t like the film, and you won’t see the killer coming.
Striking Distance is a good action flick, with an excellent cast. Its rated “R” for profanity and violence.
