| Boring and unrealistic plot
This movie would have been a bad project for any artist. The plot was predictable, but so unrealistic on so many levels until even hard core fans of Amy Brenneman and Kathy Baker could find little to enjoy about this movie. Time and time again good police procedure and common sense were abandoned to make way for this uneven tale. Even with the support of veteran actors Keith David and John Beasley this film still has little about it that can be redeemed.

Amy Brennenman, the main character is creditable as a very troubled ATF agent perhaps to the point of entertaining a death wish after participating in the ill-fated Branch Davidians raid at Waco, TX, and watching her sibling, a fellow-agent die in her arms of gunshot wounds sustained in the raid.

Kathy Baker is solid as the ATF Director, but instead of insisting on some type of administrative leave and counseling for Amy, she allows her to become a deep undercover in an attempt by the ATF to infiltrate yet another Branch Davidian-like sect who are suspected of dealing in deadly assault weapons, and domestic terrorist activity. Amy is deep inside the sect with no backup, and no line of communication to the outside so there is considerable concern for her safety, and pressure from a very ambitious FBI Director (Keith) to raid the compound while Baker is doing all she can to prevent another bloodbath like the one seen at Waco.
