The shaky premise is this: the movie begins with the murder of a wealthy San Franciscan who haggles with historians over priceless artifacts. He is killed in his own home with an Egyptian axe, one of the many pieces he collects. His assassin dawns a creepy tribal fertility mask while hacking him to pieces, and discards it among the bloody panorama, the only clue left for the police who arrive hours later at the scene. We are then introduced to detective David Corelli (Caruso), an experienced policeman in homicide and a dogged pursuer of justice. Cut to a luxurious black and white ball with the seemingly loving couple Matt and Trina Gavin (Palminteri and Fiorentino) waltzing the evening away. Detective Corelli then crashes their joyous soiree by delivering bad news to the Gavins: one of Trina's more recent acquaintances has been murdered.Read more ›
The problem is that the script is trash. It's not much more than a 'Basic Instinct' clone with elements, such as ones set in Chinatown, that lead nowhere at all. They just fill the skimpy story out to a feature length running time. Of course, if you are studying script writing, you get some ideas of what not to do.
The marvelous cast is wasted because this is one of those movies where the characters do what they do only because the script says they must. AS a result, Caruso, Fiorentino and Palmenteri can do nothing more than give a little color to their cardboard characters.

Yes, it maybe sordid but this movie is worth getting out for a rainy Saturday night. Friedkin plays with color in this movie extensively and the results are luscious. Read morePublished on June 16 2001 by Tim Walton
