For seven years a serial killer has been preying on residents of East Los Angeles, and a female homicide detective, initially barred from investigating because the victims were gangbangers, teams up with a private detective who was her lover when she was 17 but then went to prison. She’s torn between the LAPD and the cop-hating barrio where she grew up, but aside from that conflict and a chilling conclusion, director Jojo Henrickson delivers a pretty routine crime thriller (2001). 92 min.
