Overview
In this explosive, action-packed thriller, rookie cop Nick Styles (Denzel Washington) has come a long way from the tough city streets of his childhood. Nick escaped to become a cop, while his good friend Odessa (Ice T) became a street hustler, dealing drugs and stealing cars. Then Nick's life changes forever the night his arrest of a ruthless psychotic killer, Blake (John Lithgow), is captured on video by a bystander and picked up by the TV news. Nick becomes a media sensation and his career takes off, leaving Blake to sleethe in prision, obsessed with hatred and revenge. But Blake escapes from jail, faking his own murder , while Nick is left helpless, accusing a man everyone believes is dead. To defeat Blake, Nick must return to the streets, calling on his old friend Odessa. Together they set a trap that pits Nick against the killer in a terrifying confrontation that will leave one man victorious – and only one man left alive.
