Hollywood Homicide

Thursday 13th November 20037:00 PM

Harrison ford and Josh Harnett star in a light action comedy about two Hollywood cops. When not pounding the streets of Tinsletown the duo dabble in other areas in an attempt to scrape an honest living. Detective Gavilan (Ford) fancies himself as real estate broker while Calden (Harnett)wishes he was an actor.

When a promising young rap group are brutally murdered at a club the pair are assigned to the case. There enquiries take them to the heart of the recording industry as they search for answers (preferably accompanied by property hunters or auditions). In the false world of stars and wanabees the pair had best remember that "When time is running out, one shot is all you get".

While not the greatest action film you'll see (the plot is hihly predictabl and the sub-plot a little pointless) Ford does a good turn as world-weary cop and reminds us of his hidden tallent for dead-pan humour, while Harnett is as likeable as always as his rookie counterpart. All in all worth seeing but don't expect action on a "Matrix" scale.
