Movie Info

Detective Max Walker (Madsen) was once a highly respected cop until he lost his wife and his life unraveled. Haunted by her memory and harboring his rage, Walker has nothing left to lose. He is a loose cannon waiting for an excuse to explode.

A drug bust operation goes awry. A large haul of heroin is discovered by Walker and his team; including Salt (Hannah) and Sampson (Williamson). The bust attracts a great deal of heat after several people are killed and one gang member escapes from the scene.
Murder and mayhem ensue. The officers involved in the bust are being killed off one by one. No cop is safe. With no suspects in sight, a bewildered Walker joins forces with Salt to investigate the slaughter of his team.

What follows is a series of twists, intrigue and foul play. When it is discovered that some drugs from the bust went missing the cops start to look amongst themselves for the killer. Trust is compromised, comradeship dissolves and friends turn their guns on one another until the last man is standing and the truth is revealed. --© Official Site

Critic Reviews for Vice

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

A genre pic derived from bits and pieces of so many other superior films that it never attains its own identity.

Top Critic

Vice, a muddled, disposable crime thriller, has modest merits.

You've see this movie before, but you haven't seen it filtered through Madsen.

Top Critic

Writer-director Raul Sanchez Inglis tries to do several ambitious, honorable things with Vice, but for much of the action, they cancel each other out.

L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

A muddled, murky film by writer-director Raul Inglis that can't blame its consistent incomprehensibility on the rain.

Georgia Straight

Vice has the bargain-basement production values and indifferently plotted narrative of one of those cheesy Z-grade pictures that clutter up cable networks after the clock strikes midnight.

Audience Reviews for Vice

½

Micheal Madsen stars in this crime thriller about a task force of cops that make a huge drug bust just to have themselves taken out by someone one by one of course they all point fingers at each other when they find out the reason behind there partners getting killed and its up to Michael Madsens character of *Walker* to put it all together pretty decent small budget movie shoots high to be like *Street Kings* with a twist does fall short but worth a watch for fans of crime thrillers and Michael Madsen
