They are the unidentified victims of an unsolved death spree, women linked by a killer's gruesome handiwork... and by police files giving them the code name "Jennifer". Homicide investigator John Berlin believes he's made a breakthrough in the case when he uncovers a key witness: a young blind woman named Helena. Yet who can rely on the testimony of a witness who cannot see? Who can trust Berlin when he is ultimately suspected of the murders? And who can keep vulnerable Helena from becoming the next Jennifer?
I like Bruce Robinson's work but this is a poor film. Apparently he struggled on directing this and it shows in the final product which was not well received. Standard cliché driven cop drama which for me almost had a TV movie type vibe to it. Well used plotline of an individual cop (Andy Garcia) acting on his own "out there" murder theory against the doubts of his cop colleagues, the tension of which leads to an obvious fight scene with a fellow officer (yawn). Uma Thurman's contribution is somewhat lukewarm as the blind girl targeted by the killer (see Mia Farrow's better attempt in Blind Terror). Look out early on for the most obvious bit of product placement (Coca Cola Can being drank) involving Andy Garcia's character.
