Time Out says

After the shooting of his police-captain father, Pittsburgh cop Tom Hardy (Willis) accuses the force of hushing up the murder and finds himself demoted to the river patrol. Two years later, with his uncle Nick (Farina) in charge and an unlikely assailant convicted of the crime, Hardy is sure that a new spate of killings is the work of the same hand. His unauthorised investigation, with partner Jo Christman (Parker), is a routine affair, the film's familial and professional tensions sunk by a script that's all development and no pay-off. The supporting cast supplies some basic viewer-comfort, but this and the stock video ingredients are hardly enough to captivate the audience.
