In a bizarre twist of fate, the late Christopher Reeve's last role before his crippling riding accident was as wheelchair-bound ex-cop Dempsey Cain in this thriller.

Perfectionist Cain married to the beautiful Gail (Kim Cattrall); they have one son, Damon (Blake Foster). Cain's brother, reckless brother, Nick (Edward Kerr), is a uniformed cop who's having an affair with Gail. Cain gets caught in a shootout and Cain winds up paralyzed below the waist. After a failed suicide attempt, Cain goes to his wife and brother with a classic film noir proposal: His life is over, but were to kill him during a staged burglary, his insurabnce would pay out enough for them to raise his child in comfort. They agree and Cain turns the tables on them. It looks as though he's going to get away with murder, until persistant Detective Rhinehart (Joe Mantegna) realizes what really happened and dedicates himself to bringing Cain to justice.

Nothing special, but decent neo noir with some nice twists.
