Overview

Longtime Hollywood vice detectives Holt (Chris Penn) and Nin (Jeffrey Wright) have themselves become gangsters and drug users. When violence-prone Holt catches his girlfriend Lyndel (Sherilyn Fenn) with drug kingpin Truman Rickart's (Henry Czerny) number one henchman Sean (Anthony DeSando), Nin does everything he can to save the hood's life from his obsessed partner. But it might be a matter of too little too late: Holt already has Sean strung up in a pig-iron box that he's filling with cement.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Actor Adrian Pasdar makes an impressive directing debut with this Goodfellas-meets-Reservoir Dogs crime thriller. The story, told in flashbacks, begins with a prolonged torture scene and only gets more severe from there. Intense performances -- particularly from the always fascinating Jeffrey Wright (who went on to do Shaft and Ali) and Chris Penn at his lizard-eyed best -- along with a tight pace and excellent production values (the lighting and cinematography are particularly effective) add up to a stomach-clenching mobster saga. Pasdar may not be an auteur in the making, but he shows he can hold his own, given an inspired cast and a nasty script.
