A hard-boiled entertaining crime story that is skeptical if idealistic politicians alone can clean up the dirt in a big city.

Audience Reviews for The Turning Point

Solid crime drama with a better than usual part for Alexis Smith and good performances from the entire cast. Strong direction moves this along at an involving pace.
