It tries to weave too much in less than 2 hours duration of the movie, which makes it a bit messy and can cause distraction. Young love may endure in your heart and one day re-ignite, but reality may soon dowse the flames. The Philadelphia Inquirer ' s Jonathan Storm gave it 70 out of , saying "If you're looking for unencumbered tough-guy entertainment, you won't be disappointed. Van Meter calls Perry and tells him that there is a witness at the address Juliet who has to be eliminated.
He is an officer who has dedicated his life to taking down the worst criminals in L. His team includes Ty Curtis, a newlywed who struggles between his job and his new life; Dean Bendis, an officer who is so deep in his undercover role that his team is no longer sure which side he is on; and Jaimie Allen, a green patrol cop recruited into the undercover unit because of her dark past and criminal skills.
Carter Shaw is the head of a crack undercover team of the Los Angeles Police Department that is so secret, many of the team members' own colleagues do not know they are involved. He made a large number of arrests of high-profile criminals during his eighteen years on the force. Shaw frequently uses criminal contacts to further leads and add substance to his team's covers during investigations; Carter's team members are often shocked at how friendly and casual he seems with known criminals.
Carter was married with one child before he became a deep undercover officer. His ex-wife claims his double life was the reason their marriage dissolved. This earlier part of his life is sharply contrasted with the one he now leads, in which he has few personal relationships.
KristieAnne Reed is co-executive producer. Cannon directed the pilot episode ,  which attracted 3. Ty goes undercover to search for a gun trafficker, but nearly blows his cover by breaking a crucial rule and seeing his wife on her birthday.
Jaimie is on the front lines of this case, which may be her hardest challenge yet. Carter tries to bust a dirty cop. Ty gets transferred to the cop's unit. Meanwhile, because of Carter's actions during the case, Jaimie digs up information that links Carter to the case personally.
The team goes undercover to bust the biggest dealer on the west coast. To get dark, Jaimie has to use her real-life alias, Jaimie Anderson, and connect with an old friend. Also, she has to ask her boyfriend, a District Attorney, a favor to get what the team needs in order to complete the bust.
Carter and Ty team up to go after a local drug ring. Dean gets close to an art dealer Jordana Brewster whose father may be involved in drug distribution. At best it complimented the ongoing tensions between community and cops, at worst it distracts from the main thrust. Russell does give one of his strongest performances in recent years and is not afraid to be an unsympathetic lead character.
However the rest of the cast are either not as good or not as well used. Speedman has to carry most of the moral weight of the film and it is clearly too heavy for him and can't do it convincingly. Rhames is simply not used very well and is almost supplementary to requirements. Gleeson is miscast - he is an able actor but the film required him to be a generation older than Perry, in reality they were the same age more or less.
Michele is sexy and is reasonably well used for a support character and Kurupt is good even if he is playing the character that he plays daily in his rapper personae. Overall this was a superior cop thriller that was enjoyable as same.
It did a reasonable job looking at the real life issues of corruption in the LAPD but not as well as perhaps other reviews would have led you to believe - it is more a wallpaper or just a theme that is used to prop up the narrative rather than a real good historic look at the time.
