Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Very Good "The characters, and Carnahan's shades-of-gray French Connectio'-style action, inspire the actors -- they play off one another with blazing skill. Bulked up and upholstered into bland coats and ties that manage to look menacing, Liotta, with a mean salt-and-pepper goatee, is a wonder recently risen from the acting underworld. And Patric, his worthy ally (or opponent), gives Tellis' ambivalence a dimension of real sadness.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "Narc is a relentless downer. The movie is about murder, abuse, and betrayal, with no distant ray of light shining like a beacon of hope. Some of Carnahan's dialogue has the rat-a-tat feel of Tarantino, but the uncompromising bluntness of the violence is pure Scorsese. This is not gratuitous bloodshed; it's the kind that makes you feel like you've been punched in the gut. Narc's characters live in the shadows, and the movie works because Carnahan takes us into the darkness with them. Unfortunately, when it's all over, he leaves us there.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "The investigation itself must remain undescribed here. But its ending is a neat and ironic exercise in poetic justice. Pay attention during one of the very last shots, and tell me if you think the tape recorder was on or off. In a way, it makes a difference. In another way, it doesn't.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Above Average "The movie's shattered, chilly look embodies the bleak brutality and casual corruption of Tellis's crumbling world: Color bled out to post-mortum grays and blues, shivering camera, editing that stutters and lurches. Tellis isn't hip or fatalistic about the thin line between cops and criminals: ... In an era of pre-packaged cynicism, Carnahan's old-fashioned sense of outrage makes his film feel fresh.''

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We were only able to collect 35 moviegoer opinions. There was just no market for this movie, which is a good thing since about half the moviegoers didn't care much for it and most of the other half only rated it above average. This is one that you could easily wait to see on video or maybe in the second run theaters.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Sorry, we were not given an advance screening of this movie.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When a drug bust goes awry and a pregnant woman is shot, undercover narcotics officer Nick Tellis (Jason Patric) is suspended from the Detroit Police Force. With a baby of his own and a wife who has seen him tortured by the horrific incident, Tellis is not anxious to go back onto the force, but he doesn't know any other kind of work that can fulfill him.

Now it is eighteen months after his suspension, and Tellis is brought before a review board and told he is needed to help crack a homicide case. A rookie undercover officer has been killed, and if Tellis takes on the assignment and apprehends a suspect, he is told he can have the assignment of his choosing and all the charges against him will be dismissed.

Homicide Detective Henry Oak (Ray Liotta), the slain officer's partner and mentor, is a bare bones, brass knuckles cop who has been leading the murder investigation. A respected officer, who brings in solid collars with a 93% conviction rate, Oak has become increasingly volatile and aggressive since the trail of clues in the case has gone cold. In fact, for over sixty days, there has been no tangible evidence or a single suspect uncovered.

Despite his wife's concerns about his mental stability if he goes back undercover, Tellis teams up with Oak, whose heavy-handed, and often brutal style, is difficult for Tellis to handle. Still, somehow the two men begin to work together, chasing down leads, tracking informants and finally zeroing in on two primary suspects, drug dealers Beery (Busta Rhymes) and Steeds (Richard Chevolleau), who operate out of a grimy Detroit chop shop.

As Oak browbeats Beery and Steeds for a confession, the true story of how the young officer was killed slowly comes into focus.. .and the truth is nothing less than shocking.
