Two detectives protect a witness while investigating stolen heroin from the evidence room, inside their own precinct. Fun! I had seen parts of this, but never the whole thing all at once. Michael Bay actually does a great job, in his directorial debut of making a solid crime thriller and making Will Smith a star. It’s also under 2 hours, which is basically unheard of for Bay.
“Chicago crime kid Mick O'Brien is sent to reform school after accidentally killing a rival's kid brother.” Great early Sean Penn role, along with an ensemble of character actors you’re familiar with and some that should have been more famous. It says reform school but this fits right in on a list of great prison movies. Dark and Gritty. The scene of the accidental killing is nuts. Prime Video.
