'Narc'
(Ray Liotta, Jason Patric / R / 102 mins / Paramount)

Overview:Detroit police narcotics officer Nick Tellis (Jason Patric), a recovering drug addict, is assigned to investigate the murder of a young rookie cop and teams with the dead cop's partner, Lt. Henry Oak (Ray Liotta), who's out for blood. But as Tellis gets closer to the truth, he discovers he may have been set up.

Verdict: The two leads, nearly perfect in their roles, bring a heart and reality that buoy the film, and at times, elevate it to a superior crime movie. Those two leads are Patric and Liotta and both are as tense and great as they've ever been. In fact, directed with enormous elan by Joe Carnahan it can boast an arresting, Oscar-caliber performance by Ray Liotta if the truth be told ! And even though Patric is mighty effective in a role that takes advantage of his natural broodiness, it's Liotta who really steals the show. 'Narc' is taut and well-acted, faltering only when the filmmaker loses faith in the power of his story. Nevertheless, it has a cohesive and mostly coherent story and ultimately delivers some neat twists.
