Synopsis / Plot
David Ackerman (Charlie Sheen) is a recently promoted plain-clothes detective who's lugging around a lot of emotional baggage. He's estranged from his wealthy father (Tom Skerritt) because of his career choice and he's having troubles with his live-in girl friend. David's most upsetting trauma, however, is a result of the accidental death of his brother, an accident for which David was responsible. David has chosen to work in the auto theft division, believing it offers a chance for quick promotion, and ends up as a partner to Nick Pulovski (Clint Eastwood), a former auto race driver who is now a grizzled, mean-spirited veteran cop. The two couldn't be more dissimilar. For their first assignment, David and Nick must team to break up a massive auto theft operation run by Strom (Raul Julia) and his partner Liesel (Sonia Braga).
