I like Rowdy Herrington, and he assembled a good cast for this 1993 film - Bruce Willis, Sarah Jessica Parker, Dennis Farina, Tome Sizemore, Robert Pastorelli, John Mahoney, Timothy Busfield, and Andre Braugher.
Willis is Tom Hardy, who spoke out against his crazy partner (Pastorelli) and for this reason is shunned by other officers.
There is a serial killer on the loose, and he's killing all of Tom's ex-girlfriends. Tom knows the killer is a cop, targeting him. He's let go from homicide and all that's available to him is river rescue.
Two years later, his views haven't changed. The killer is back in full swing, but the police thinks it's a copycat. Tom knows better.
The first eight minutes of this consist of a police car - obviously a computer graphic, which was a little off-putting, it was so obvious. This is the type of film that was made for the movie theater - it's loud, it has car chases galore, shootings, crashes - non-stop action.
Willis is very good; the rest of the actors are good, too, but they're from television - Willis is the only true movie star. He and the special effects got all the money.
Pretty good and entertaining, too, with a mini-twist.
