Raynor is an undercover narcotics cop. For his next assignment he chooses the more inexperienced but tough and good-looking Kristen. Their ultimate target is Gaines, a renowned but very elusive drug dealer. While doing their work they unexpectedly fall into a morass of drug-addiction and fall in love with each other. Despite subjecting themselves to the life of low-class, one-track junkies they do not get the evidence they want to convict Gaines, and instead are forced into using false evidence in court.
User Reviews: While no masterpiece, "Rush" is an offbeat, well made film set in the early ’70’s centering on the efforts of some Texas cops to bust supposed drug dealer Greg Allman — at all costs.
All of the actors perform well — Jason Patric gives a particularly intense performance as the once idealistic officer who has obviously stayed undercover too long.
Great score by Eric Clapton. I really have no idea why this fairly unconventional film (gee, maybe that was the reason — it wasn’t a formulaic cop/buddy movie) did not receive more acclaim. 7/10.
