James Woods plays an unconventional cop on the trail of a serial killer in this purely by the numbers thriller from the 80s. In fact the script shows just as little imagination as the title; it's so formulaic it borders on the absurd. Burnt out cop who doesn't play by the rules, chewed out by his captain, internal affairs investigation, vicious serial killer yadda yadda yadda. There's nothing here we haven't seen a million times before. It's not as trashy and gratuitously violent as many mainstream 80s thrillers, but it's unpleasantly sleazy, Woods' character comes across as a wholly unsympathetic and self centred ass-hole, and Lesley-Anne Warren's so-called feminist is so sappy and naive you just want to shake some sense into her. Add the usual mix of B-movie stalwarts in the supporting cast and you have a typical Channel 5 afternoon TV movie with more swearing. Give it a miss.
