was on showtime so i watched it. say what you will about sly stone, but he’s probably the most thoughtful of the meathead action guys – arnold, dolph, , van damme, the rock, etc. his films aren’t always the best, but i feel like he chooses stories that have more emotional impact or more thoughtful scripts. arnold was in better films overall, but i think sly is probably a more introspective actor (though it’s all relative).
this isn’t a very good film, but it has a lot of b-level actors which is interesting and there is some emotional resonance. it’s about a cop who is chasing a serial killer who ends up killing his wife. he goes into a downward spiral and then rehab, but the killer finds him at a remote clinic and haunts him there during a blizzard. it’s kinda like the thing in this way. remote, cold location with a killer among us. in the end he gets the guy and is able to move on from the guilt of having his wife murdered as a result of his job. not elegant or particularly good, but not bad either and does have another level beyond the thriller aspect.
