It Was Okay
22 June 2011 | by bob-rutzel-1See all my reviews

Several former undercover cops are killed and Det Dan Sullivan (Hatosy) is suspicious because they were scheduled to talk to IA (Internal Affairs) and he believes someone is covering up something big.

I have no idea why this movie is so over-hyped as being set in Detroit (Motor City). The only things you see re Detroit are empty streets, except for the characters' vehicles, of course. And, most of those scenes are in the very early morning hours. The street scenes could be anywhere in the early morning hours, but they make a big deal for it being in Detroit. Go figure.

With the opening scenes you see who may be the one who is killing all the former undercover cops. So there is no mystery re that. You know who it is. But, the story is in the telling about how Det Sullivan investigates the murders, and it's okay……..well, actually, more like a made-for-TV movie except for the language.

I cannot figure out why Ray Liotta has not received an Oscar. His acting is and has been pure gold throughout the years.

Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: Yes, very briefly in the beginning. Language: Yes.
