Movie Info

Undercover cop Jim Raynor (Jason Patric) is a seasoned veteran. His partner, Kristen Cates (Jennifer Jason Leigh), is lacking in experience, but he thinks she's tough enough to work his next case with him: a deep cover assignment to bring down the notoriously hard-to-capture drug lord Gaines (Gregg Allman). While their relationship turns romantic during the assignment, they also turn into junkies, and will have to battle their own addictions if they want to bring down Gaines once and for all.

Audience Reviews for Rush

  • Dec 28, 2015
    Whilst there are many problems with this film, (like the leads being badly underwritten), it's the strength of the two lead performances that make the whole thing work. Jason Patric, and in particular Jennifer Jason Leigh are so believable in their roles, they make their story a deeply moving and tragic one. This is one of few movies I can think of that is really not that well made, and which is also a very routine affair, but which is still well worth a look just to witness the power of the lead performances.

    A truly excellent, authentic, engrossing, and relentlessly dark depiction of drugs and the criminal justice system. There are no true "good guys" to be found, and the bad guys are found on both sides, moral ambiguity is rampant. The film does a fantastic job of showing how fine the line often is, and how, in the name of moral relativity, it's often crossed. The film captures a fantastic tone throughout, and is powerfully acted by both Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh, who have a gripping chemistry together. The script is intelligent, being based on a semi-autobiographical novel, and offers poignant insight. One of the best "in too deep" films out there. 4.5/5 Stars

    What "Rush" ultimately suffers from is a weak script with thinly drawn characters and a poor ending. Both Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jason Patric are good, but only as good as the script allows for them to be. Other than this flaw, the film is mostly entertaining and enjoyable, and there are many cleverly choreographed sequences. Plus, the cinematography holds up quite nicely.

    Critically insane story of an Texas undercover narcotics police sergeant Jim Raynor (Jason Patric) that recruits a fresh young police rookie Kristen Cates (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to infiltrate and take down a suspected drug dealing crime boss (Gregg Allman). Between getting strung out and collecting evidence against the crime boss...the pressure escalates on the pair to manufacture fictitious evidence to get this crime boss off the streets. As the pressure increases the assistance of their superior (Sam Elliot) and his higher ups...becomes more evident that manufacturing police evidence against a suspect, is against police protocol...the heat gets turned up on whether the crime boss will go behind bars but what will be the cost of the risky effort? This fairly slow moving drama will rock you to the edge of your seat and suspense you with with a rolling sound track...see it!
