Hard Core

Narc: 3 Stars. It's nice to see an old-school type of cop drama like this up on the silver screen. Ray Liotta and Jason Patric play flawed detectives investigating the murder of Liotta's former partner in the gritty, snowy urban sprawl of Detroit. There's all sorts of lies, deceptions, shady characters, and bodies that turn up in their twisted investigation, which stalls to plodding at times, but is well-paced in general. The end was a little neat, but I still liked how it was done. Kudos to the cinematographer...just an awe-inspiring job.
