Wednesday, 07 October 1998 |  Written by Abbie Bernstein  | 
If not for the big names in the cast and the occasional colorful expression in the dialogue, viewers could be forgiven for supposing that 'Boiling Point' is an episode of a fairly decent contemporary cop show. The sensibility is much the same, with people on both sides of the law methodically going about their business. Based on the novel 'Money Men' by Gerald Petievich (who also wrote the book that served as the basis for 'To Live and Die in L.A.'), 'Boiling Point' follows the crossed paths of Federal Treasury agent Jimmy Mercer (Wesley Snipes) and con man/counterfeit cash distributor Red (Dennis Hopper). Both men have seven-day deadlines imposed upon them by their higher-ups.

Fox), on his way to what he sees as the perfect life as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, is furious when his beloved 1956 Porsche breaks down in Grady, South Carolina, squash capitol of the south. Swerving to miss a cow, he's smashed the fence of a local judge, who sentences him to 36 hours of community service in the town's hospital. Stern nurse Packer (Eyde Byrde) cuts him no slack, while ebullient mayor Nick Nicholson (David Ogden Stiers) tries to sell him on the advantages of life in a small town, since crusty old Dr. Hogue (Barnard Hughes) is clearly about to retire. And naturally, there's a local beauty, ambulance driver Lou ...

Some of its deviations from the traditional routes of big-budget love stories don’t quite work (the ending is arguably unpredictable but tremendously wrong-headed). However, in adapting Wim Wenders film ‘Wings of Desire’ for an English-language version set (where else?) in Los Angeles, director Brad Silberling and screenwriter Dana Stevens create moments of magic.

Our profession dictates that we have fairly extensive vocabularies; we should not have to resort to name-calling. However, sometimes only a word like "lame" will do.

Traces of the Arnold to come are found in this routine but entertaining action movie -- as well as signs of where the action movie was heading: into anthologies of increasingly huge and unlikely set pieces, with the story and characterization of less and less concern.
