|Summary: Crime drama er mystery er romance er sad er whatever...|
|Nick Nolte plays a tough cop, Chazz Palminteri plays his partner, and two
others round the "hat squad" of tough cops that keep the mafia out of L.A.
Their investigations into the death of a woman lead into trouble when it
turns out that not only is she the former mistress of the lead, but she
was also doing a general at a nearby nuclear testing facility. This movie
is based in the late 1940's, and they do a good job of maintaining that
feel. However, what was supposed to be a tough cop movie turns into a
mystery and then a sad story about fidelity and in the end this movie
just wanders all over the map, genre-wise. The end effect is disappointing.
Palminteri gives a great performance though. |
