Plot Summary

A sexy, stylish thriller stars Ray Liotta as Ford Cole, a big-city district attorney with his eye on the mayor's office and a big problem on his hands. One of his deputies, the beautiful assistant district attorney, Nora Timmer, has just confessed to killing a man in what she claims was self-defense. A bad situation gets worse when an enigmatic stranger named Luther Pinks turns up at the police station to contradict Nora's story and paint a very different picture of Ford's talented colleague. With his career and perhaps his life on the line, Ford has a mere handful of hours to sort the truth from the lies in a saga involving Nora, a record store clerk, and a powerful gang lord.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Slow Burn is a wooden police thriller that is as dull as it is impenetrable and ultimately beyond ludicrous. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: A strange, sprained, but sprightly fusion of The Usual Suspects and the Tragic Mulatto, Slow Burn wants badly to turn its standard neo-noir into a nuanced racial chiaroscuro. – Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Has direct-to-video etched all over it. – Eddie Cockrell, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Beach's storytelling tactics, much like the film as a whole, would simply be annoying if they weren't also borderline insulting. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

good movie

This movie has quite an interesting plot thats constantly keeps you guessing. The main cast, Ray Liotta, LL Cool J, & Jolene Blalock all fit thier characters pretty well. The twists capsizing everything over the last twenty minutes turn the conclusion into a big mess but heat is not lacking at all. Slow Burn deals with corruption and a little gang-related mystery, all the while providing that sense of empathy for Liotta's character that seems all too absent in modern films today. To appreciate this movie you really must sit down & pay attention.
