WHEN TIME IS RUNNING OUT, ONE SHOT IS ALL YOU GET.
L.A. cops Joe Gavilan and KC. Calden (Harrison Ford, Josh Hartnett) investigate the murders of four members of a rap group, but their careers on the side keep getting in the way. Director Ron Shelton makes a cop movie the same way he makes his sports movies; it’s a little too long, has a lot of humor and Lolita Davidovich makes an appearance. The story is completely for the birds, the action sequences could be a lot better, but the film is not exactly dull and this is an opportunity for Ford to play a very different character – and he’s fun.
