Kristoffer Joner is likeable as the loner who befriends her. Sadly the movie ultimately suffers from a predictable Shyamalan style twist ending but director Pl Sletaune keeps it moving along nicely and it is quite involving. I certainly enjoyed it more than the over-rated "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo".

(ca) wrote: Oh man, I just rewatched this movie and it was crazy! I think this is one of those movies that I watched a million times growing up. Like Baby Sitters Club and Now and Then. It's so creepy too how many people were always sort of there through my childhood. Christina Ricci, in this, Now and Then, Casper and I'm sure a whole bunch of other movies, Addams Family... Jewel Staite was in this movie too! Plus there was all of this weird stuff, like how Jody was abused by her crappy "step dad" who was an alcoholic. I'd totally forgotten all of that. I have no idea why but this movie is exactly what I needed right now. I think I'll watch My Girl next since Chlumsky is in that too.Oh yeah and the girl who played Chrissy in Now and Then is in this too!
(mx) wrote: Given the drug-based cop drama/urban crime plot, the interracial partnership of the main cops, and the soundtrack being made up of contemporary urban (black) music, you could be forgiven for confusing this film with being a blaxploitation film. I mean, it IS directed by Mario Van Peebles, and there are some references to films from that genre, but surprisingly, it is not. Mostly because it's played straight, with only some humor, and no camp factor. It is definitely a b-movie, but a competently made high end one.Okay, so the main plot is pretty standard, with two mismatched cops having to team up to take down a powerful drug lord who has taken the streets prisoner with his ultra strong crack. It's still an enjoyable ride though, and it's quite stylish, with some actually pretty decent performances.Okay, so Judd Nelson is underused, but he's good when he's there. Wesley Snipes is fine, but I feel like he's just doing a VERY low-key and subtle take on Tony Montana. The stand outs are Ice-T who, still very much known for his anti-cop songs is great as a tough streetwise cop, and really gets his acting career off to a great start, though after this it wouldn't pick up again until he portrayed another cop on Law and Order: SVU. The other top prize goes to the outstanding Chris Rock, who gives an utterly memorable and gripping turn as an ill-fated ex-junkie turned informer. This is overall a really decent flick. It's ultimately nothing new, but very well played, and far better (both as a directorial debut and in general) than it could have been, so give it a shot.
