4.5 out of 10 A contender for the best movie of it's genre.

A stellar cast that was superbly directed by Curtis Hanson. It's screenplay is an excellent reworking of Ellroy's novel about dirty cops. It truly deserved a hatful of Oscars in 1998, rather than just the two it got. A masterpiece that's slick with action will have any movie fan stuck to their seat.
