Format: DVD
I was really surprised by the number of negative reviews of this movie. Granted, STRIKING DISTANCE, is not one of Bruce's best films, but I found it to be solidly entertaining, cliches and all. And I think it had some very good twists that I didn't see coming. I found the whole cast, (even (...)Sarah Jessica Parker) to be commendable in their roles. Special kudos to Robert Pastorelli, Dennis Farina and Tom Sizemore. I wanted to be entertained and STRIKING DISTANCE certainly filled the bill for me!!

Striking Distance may boast the likes of mega star Bruce Willis and Sarah Jessica Parker, pre her Sex In The City fame, in its cast. Not to mention some fine character actors, lending some solid support to the proceedings. Still, thanks to a screenplay, riddled with cliches, the film fails to add anything new to the thriller genre
Tom Hardy (Bruce Willis) is a maverick cop who's not afraid to rock the boat in pursuit of a sadistic serial killer. Demoted to river patrol after suggesting the killer may be a fellow police officer, he initiates an unauthorized investigation. His new partner, Jo (Sarah Jessica Parker) climbs aboard with a surprise of her own, as the conspiracy closes in around them.
Director Rowdy Herrington, who is also credited as co-writer of the film's script with Martin Kaplan, puts together a film that feels all too familiar. The "twists" of the movie are fairly easy to spot, and if it wasn't for the work of Willis, who does a solid job--the movie would be almost forgettable. What should play out like a "page turning pulp mystery", instead, the story connects most of the dots for the viewer. What a shame.
Given my thoughts on the film, I was not at all suprised by the lack of extras, on the DVD. All that's there is the movie's theatrical trailer Those that end up watching Striking Distance can choose to do so, in either the full-screen, or widescreen formats.
What a disappointment. The DVD only garners a two star rating, not my usual feeling about a Bruce Willis flick...

By Kieran on Dec 17 2003
Format: DVD
This movie is absolutely awful; one of several Willis flops from the mid to late 90's ("Color of Night", "Die Hard With A Vengeance", "Last Man Standing", "The Jackal"). However, his other films at least had semi-coherent, albeit predictable, plot lines and decent acting. "Striking Distance" is full every cop/thriller cliché you can think of, the only difference being the fact that Willis plays a water policeman, which by the end of the movie is neither here nor there.
The story sees Willis' character's father (also a police officer) en route to a policeman's ball is throw into a chase scene in which the car (naturally) crashes, and is killed. Though it seems his death is not as a result of the accident, but rather from bullet wounds. Fast-forward to a few years later and bodies are being found dumped in the river that Willis' character patrols. Of course, this all becomes serious when it is apparent the same killer, possibly a serial killer, is committing the murders. Now the hunt is on (surprise, surprise) and Willis suspects this may all be somehow related to his father's death.
What could have been an intelligent and interesting story soon slides below the limbo bar of film mediocrity. Sarah Jessica Parker "co-stars" as the typical love interest, but she has no chemistry with Willis she barley has more than a paragraph of dialogue with him. This is just one of many pointless characters peppered throughout the film. The most annoying one being some cop who has it in for Willis, but you're never sure why, and his confrontations are used as filler (i.e. they have no connection to the murder or to any other plot point).

What many people fail to realize is that this is an unintentional comedy. For example, on their way to the policeman's ball Hardy and father get into a car chase that ends in a wreck. Hardy is pulled from the overturned car with a leg injury hours after it happens (it was daylight before, now it is dark and the ambulance is waiting) and the first thing his rescuers have him do is stand up! Hilarious. Also, don't miss Hardy's constipated expression whenever he fires his gun.
Terrific cast is wasted in this movie.

In my book, the very worst films are the ones that take a lot of talented people, all of whom have done great work elsewhere, and deliver them into a cinematic meatgrinder. "Battlefield Earth" is one such film, and "Striking Distance" is another.
This film manages to completely waste Bruce Willis, Sarah Jessica Parker, Dennis Farina, Tom Sizemore, Robert Pastorelli, Brion James, and Andre Braugher, all of whom are tremendous actors who've done fine work elsewhere. But in "Striking Distance," it seems that they were all in it for a paycheck, and little else.
When bad movies are filled with hack actors, and were obviously done on a nonexistent budget, at least you know the movie couldn't have been better.
But when you have a bomb like this populated with this kind of talent, and obviously the product of a serious budget, the problem is that the people making it just didn't give a darn.
