This modern-day film noir about a big-city district attorney (Ray Liotta) running for mayor, a beautiful assistant district attorney (Jolene Blaylock) who says she killed an amorous store clerk in self-defense, and a faceless criminal kingpin is told in a series of flashbacks and half-baked sociological musings. Director-screenwriter Wayne Beach is far better in the former capacity, and the film looks stylish, but ultimately fizzles in a sea of posturing and implausibilities. The film contains rough, crude and crass language and frank talk of rape; a sexual groping and a handful of brief sexual encounters, mostly in unrevealing close-ups except for one flash of frontal nudity; some possible rear and implied shower nudity; some nongraphic gunfire killings; and one scene of a dead body with blood. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
