| harden cop drama
Leo Nova and Earl Skinner attack a drug plant behind a Los Angeles Chinese storefront run by Tito Delgadillo. They steal Fatal Beauty drug packets. They don't realize that a mistake has left the packages with lethal doses. Narcotic officer Rita Rizzoli (Whoopi Goldberg) has been pursuing Delgadillo and is assigned the case. She finds Delgadillo's dead body and links the case to wealthy businessman Conrad Kroll. Mike Marshak (Sam Elliott) is Kroll's unwitting head of security. The drug starts killing its users or making them psychotic.

This is one of those 80s/90s harden cop dramas. It's Beverly Hills Cop or Lethal Weapon without the humor. There are a few bothersome issues. It's a lot brutal violence but some of it doesn't make the best sense. Rizzoli is Italian which Whoopi struggles to fit. The most glaring is the title which refers to the drug. Without that knowledge, it seems to refer to Whoopi. It makes it sound like a sexy femme fatale which runs counter to Whoopi. Also Whoopi and Sam Elliott struggle to develop romantic chemistry. There are lots of little flaws which makes this less than compelling.
