Murder at 1600
Time Out saysThat's 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. A woman's found murdered at the White House and detective Snipes (average) is soon at loggerheads with secret service chief Benzali over jurisdictional privilege. Circumstantial evidence points to a cleaner, but Snipes knows a fall guy when he sees one, and special agent Lane reluctantly concurs. The script has President Cox trying to tough out a hostage crisis in North Korea without recourse to the military, while Snipes is understandably more concerned with the local bureaucracy about to flatten his house. Passable, but punches are pulled, and all suspense jettisoned some 20 minutes from home.
