Overview

The boiling point is mighty low in this tepid action programmer. Wesley Snipes plays Jimmy Mercer, a Treasury agent whose sting operation goes bad. Engineered by Ronnie (Viggo Mortensen), a dull-witted but sadistic ex-con, the operation not only fails, but one of Jimmy's colleagues is killed by Ronnie in the process. As punishment, Jimmy is exiled to Newark, where he is given seven days to find the man responsible for the death of the officer. Meanwhile, slimy con-man Red (Dennis Hopper) has Ronnie deceived into thinking that Mercer is a big-time crook with influential connections. Red does this to enlist Ronnie's aid to participate in a third-rate crime spree. When Ronnie and Red begin their two-man crime wave, Jimmy is in relentless pursuit behind them.

This action quckie has a film noir look and a few good moments. Snipes, Hopper preparing to square off to a final conflict is a little too predictible, but slick camera work and a host of well played supporting parts keep things interesting enough. From a book, ''Money Men'' by Gerald Pettevich, whose first novel became the modern day classic TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA. Pettevich has a cameo has a hotel security guard.
