This is supposedly based on a true story that took place in Louisiana during the early 80s. If so, they have to have the absolute worst police department on the planet. They talk a felon into turning evidence against his boss and promise him, his wife, and his infant boy protection. They failed miserably. The entire story is told sooooo slowly and then the ending was so anticlimactic. I would rather have not watched this at all. Depressing and totally unfulfilling ending.

Willem Defoe was as good as usual. Matt Dillon was suitably sleazy. But Tom Berenger brought them both down with ridiculous costuming, fake accent, and exaggerated posturing. The fight scene at the end was absurd. It was ok otherwise.

okay time waster. Nothing special but performances worth the time spent.

Watchable. Fast pace and quite entertaining.

A decent throwback crime drama with some handlebar mustachioed/goateed talent that I admire -- Dafoe, Dillon, Berenger. There were moments that were thinly developed but not to the point of no return. I enjoyed it.

Crime drama inspired by true events when the murder of his brother turned a contract killer to become an informant for the local police and FBI to bring down the heads of a major crime ring in Dixie.

Fair Action-Drama. Unfortunately, in my mind I kept hearing Willem Dafoe saying to Tom Berenger: "Thats for killing me in Platoon, MF !". Good performances. Otherwise, nothing to write home about, but watchable.

Bud: South Louisiana in the 1980s was a different kind of time and place. Some called it lawless. But it wasn't. Others said we just got a certain way of doing things down here. But it ain't that either. Instead, I call it what it was. Hell with the lid off. ... Cops got rules, criminals don't. And if you up and cross that line, it just might cost you your life. Welcome to Dixie.
