Routine, straight-to-video cop thriller has a very sexy  as a rookie cop who poses as the wife of another officer () who is himself working undercover.  He is passing as a contact for a mob boss in order to get the goods on him, but after she joins the investigation, Moran finds himself falling helplessly in love with his partner until he begins to wonder if she really is on his side or maybe playing for both teams. The twists in this story are easy to see coming, but Esposito’s charm and extreme appeal keep you glued to your seat. Unfortunately, Moran doesn’t fare as well, giving what is among the worst American accents ever delivered by a British actor (he sounds like he’s suffered a stroke).
