Audience Reviews for Striking Distance

"Who's the best cop now?"

When a film's director is named Rowdy Herrington, a name that reminds me of a bad SNL character, the film's gotta be... something something.

Herrington has faded from the biz and Willis had his disappointments of his career at the time of this movie. Why Herrington didn't continue making movies is probably because of 'Striking Distance' and his earlier attempt of becoming the next Spielberg... 'Road House'.

I'm not gonna go into details about the movie, because there really isn't anything good mentioning about it. Willis is Willis and there's a lot of known faces but to be honest... they all suck. Their acting sucks and the script, which sucks, can be thanked for that. It just doesn't give any good material to work on.

In the end, 'Striking Distance' will not be remembered at all. Instantly forgotten and a shameful piece of work in Willis' CV. Skip it away now!

A very good action thriller as a cop thinks another cop might be a serial killer. Plenty of good action scenes, and twists guessing the killer. A very strong cast line up as well. If you've not seen this it's worth checking out!
