Until the script finally goes completely off the rails, this cop corruption tale is worth watching for the ferocious performance of Washington alone. He's veteran undercover narc Alonzo Harris, who's been the big dog on the L.A. streets for so long, he's become morally bankrupt and works on the might makes right theory of justice. Opposing him is rookie Jake Hoyt (Hawke), who first wants to be a part of Harris's team and then learns just what it will cost him. Fuqua shot on location so you can definitely feel the grit.

This is a really good movie! Jake Hoyt wants to work with the LAPD as a narcotics officer. In order to be accepted, he must go through approximately twenty-four hours of training from a veteran Narcotics officer. Unfortunately for Jake, he is appointed to Alonzo Harris, an officer who has a nasty reputation for not treating victims very well, abusing suspects, handling drugs and other evidence in a questionable matter, and opening fire randomly. Jake has to watch his own back and find out who the real bad guy is.
