David Morse’s loose-cannon Philadelphia cop McCanick blows his top on his 59th birthday when he learns that the young hustler (the late Cory Monteith from Glee in his last film role) he sent to jail seven years earlier is back on the streets. But just what has lit his fuse?
This gritty crime drama is frustratingly obscure, cutting back and forth between past and present as it drops clues about its tortured anti-hero. But when we finally reach the film’s big reveal the payoff is disappointingly lame.
