The Murder At 1600 Download
When the murdered body of a young woman who works in the White House is found, homicide detective Harlan Regis is called in. Upon arriving Senior Secret Service Agent Spikings objects to his presence, but he has the support of the National Security Advisor. Preliminary investigation suggests that it might be a sex crime. And Regis learns that the President's son has a history of similar acts. He tries to get more info while Spikings is impeding him but he is determined to find out what happened. Secret Service Agent Nina Chance tries to help him.
At a time of international incident, the body of a young female staffer is found in a White House wash room. Homicide detective Harlan Regis is called in to investigate the murder only to discover the secret service had taken hold of all the evidence for their own investigation. A frustrated Regis becomes suspicious of a cover-up and convinces secret service agent Nina Chance to aid him. The remainder of the plot is spent following Regis and Chance as they uncover the answers as to who is behind the conspiracy and why.
This was, for the most part, a fast paced and suspenseful movie. It recalled one or two other political thrillers for me a little. The same type of thing, Washington DC, Murder, cover up. For the most part an OK movie.
I enjoyed this movie as a whole, though certain scenes I could have lived without. It's not a very original premise and some of the chase scenes go on for to long(way, way to long)! But it's a not to bad way to pass the time if one is bored and there isn't anything else on. The acting is pretty good and the story moves quickly so, other then the over-saturation of chase scenes, your never bored.
I think the story itself was great and the movie fast paced, well cast and fun to watch. The biggest negatives are it being somewhat predictable and the above mentioned chase scenes that, besides being rather dull, also make the movie rather unrealistic. I'd have liked to see a bit more realism to an interesting story.
This isn't a perfect movie but it's above average, even though it doesn't seem to be real well known. My rating is 7 of 10.
I really wanted to like this movie, be invested on either how awesomely 90s it is or how interesting certain aspects were, but it fails. It's not a bad movie, it's a dull movie.
Firstly, we have the sex scene in the Oval Office, which you can tell on how it's conveyed that director Dwight Little thought this was controversially awesome, and to tell us this is a mature movie. (Many 90s films had these shadowed sex scenes to signal this is going to be an intertwining tale of double crossings, sleaze and conspiracies.) We also have Harlan's introduction, using unorthodox methods to disarm a suicidal man with typical smart aleck. (Many 90s films couldn't shake off 80s cop maverick and were used not as a plot point or moment of hilarity like its predecessor, but as a quick ploy for character emphasis, only never to be used again throughout the movie.) Then a bombardment of clichés; Nina revolts against the Secret Service, Chief Spikings is heavily secretive and dismissive towards the detectives and Harlan is a 'man of the streets' with own problems but always gets the job done. Nothing original is presented.
The closest we get to something a little different is Harlan's apartment where we see a miniature recreation of Washington in the 19th Century; he talks to Nina about his father being a "history buff" and through this he too is fascinated by American history but
this goes nowhere! He never talks about history, this trait quickly disperses and no reference is made later. I'm guessing the point is to emphasise his love for the city, but it needn't go to such lengths of making this.
The cigar Harlan had throughout was a cheap, tacky attempt at conveying a hardened, maverick cop of the streets, a man with a problem with authority etc. because he never smokes it! It's not even alight, which you could forgive as Snipes is a non-smoker, but to have it there is really disjointing viewing.
The performances from the surrounding cast weren't particularly memorable; none of them were bad or outwardly irritating but were just there. The closest to any intrigue was Dennis Miller who definitely tried to add humour to the script.
Murder at 1600 is dull and unoriginal. Everything here has been done many times before and whenever its shows any signs of originality, it's quickly discarded for safer choices. A time-filler flick.
Starring Wesley Snipes as the suave Regis, Murder at 1600 is the modern equivalent of the routine B-picture, diverting in a small potatoes kind of way, though its budget and stars are big league.
