Director Joh Raffo

plot summary  Crime-scene photographer Johnny Scardino (Peter Gallagher) has become so emotionally detached from his work that he doesn't mind dabbling in blackmail on the side, acting as a hired lensman to catch high-rolling businessmen with their pants down. But when a few familiar faces turn up dead at Johnny's day job, he fears that he may be next.

sez says -- from the opening scene it is obvious something is wrong with the script--and it doesn't gt better.. the acting is up to the task of creating a good movie--but the script keeps weighting it down --the people just sound stupid. It doesn't help that the story lacks spunk.  It is really pretty clear who done it...and who cares. Overall a real waste of time.
