Academy Award-winners Michael Douglas ("Disclosure," "Wall Street," and "Basic Instinct") and Robert Duvall ("A Civil Action," "The Godfather") star with Emmy-winner and Oscar-nominee Barbara Hershey ("Portrait of a Lady," "Hannah and Her Sisters") in this action-drama about a man's odyssey into madness, prompted by the effects of modern city life. It follows two ordinary men: a laid-off defense worker (Douglas) driven beyond frustration in an endless traffic jam now on a path of violence and potential self destruction, and an LAPD detective (Duvall), only hours away from retirement who is determined to find him and stop his vigilante acts. Directed by hit-maker Joel Schumacher ("Batman Forever," "The Client"). The New York Times called this "a wickedly mischievous, entertaining suspense thriller…"
