Original Title:


Uninspired buddy road movie with LA Law's Corbin Bernsen and ER's Christine Harnos in one of her first leading role teaming up to track down an escaped killer. She's a detective out to avenge the death of her father and he's an opportunist true-life crime author after a good yarn.

Sadly the chemistry really isn't there and the age difference is clear to see. I would say re-casting would have helped but really this film needs an entire overhaul.

To be fair it's mildly diverting at times (if not a little irritating with Bernsen's usual same-old performance), but Harnos's appealing character can't make up for the inevitability of the whole thing.

No-one's trying in this movie apart from Corbin and he's dreadful.
