5.0 out of 5 stars HUH? April 7 2004
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!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Strike Out Feb. 28 2004
Format:DVD
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars Snoring Distance Dec 17 2003
By Kieran
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).

2.0 out of 5 stars Willis' biggest mistake since... ever Dec 11 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Gag. Ugh. Please, do me a favor and never see this movie unless the only other flick in the house is (cough) Forever Young. For a HUGE fan of Die Hard, this movie was just a punishment to sit through. When it ended, I almost put the tape on the barby, and barely stopped myself from using it to decorate Neighbor _____'s new swimming pool.
Willis stars as a cop whose daddy is killed several years before, and naturally he sinks in a depression. Typically, the form of cure comes in Sarah Jessica Parker, who looks as much as a cop as Matthew Broderick looks like Superman. The setting is wonderful, worth one star, and the clever idea to use "Little Red Ridinghood" as the killer's theme song earns the other. But at the end, when Willis goes head to head with the killer, you just sit there screaming "WHY- WON'T- YOU- DIE?!" as the killer manages to avoid being shot, hit by a train, and drowning. That is the stupidest protagonist/antagonist battle I have ever seen, even worse than Seattle hosting the WTO. Willis makes an effort to save the movie, which equals to Leonardo DiCaprio holding up the Titanic. For a much better Willis flick, try seeing THe Fifth Element, or The Sixth Sense, of The Whole Nine Yards. Most of his good movies ('sides Die Hard) come with a number, and not a reference to "Hit Me Baby One More Time". Face it, Willis fans. This flick is one sinking ship.

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. Read more

Going beyond the usual criticism of the myriad of action-movie cliches used (and badly at that) in this movie, one of my main problems with it was the treatment of women. Read more
