Meanwhile, rookie reporter Josh Pollack (JustinTimberlake) discovers an inconsistency in Deed's testimony at the murder trial. His editor (MorganFreeman) encourages him to expose the truth. But the closer he gets, the more viciously Lazerov and FRAT try to throw him off the trail. Can Pollack summon the courage he needs to finish the job, even if it means risking his life and the lives of those he loves? Pollack and Deed, together with special investigator Levon Wallace (Kevin Spacey), fight to end the corruption, which, for vaguely-explained reasons, is threatening to turn the city of Edison into a fascist state. Critics at the Toronto Film Festival had great expectations of the all-star cast. The film was very poorly received, however, and its US theatrical release was cancelled. It was finally released DirectToDVD a year and a half later with the title ''EdisonForce''.

Properly alligned the image.
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/edisonforce.jpg [[caption-width:278:So DirectToDVD it hurts]] Violent crime is all but eliminated in the city of [[{{Vancouver}} Edison]], thanks to the [[FunWithAcronyms First Response Assault Team]], a squad of elite, corrupt undercover cops. Rookie officer Raf Deed (LL Cool J) witnesses his partner, Lazerov (Dylan [=McDermott=]), kill a crackhead in cold blood. Lazerov confiscates the drugs and money, and frames the victim's friend for the murder. How will Deed keep his conscience in check, knowing this isn't the first time he'll be an accomplice to corruption?

* CompleteMonster: Lazerov.

* HeyItsThatGuy: [[Film/ThePrincessBride Westley]] is the DA? [[ThePractice Bobby Donnell]] is a crazy corrupt cop?

* {{Narm}}: Lazerov's breakdown after the captain reassigns him to a desk.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The premise of [[spoiler:FRAT's money-laundering scheme]] actually has a lot of potential. It's a shame it gets mentioned exactly once in the entire film. * TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Freeman and Spacey. * WTHCastingAgency: Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey, and Justin Timberlake share several scenes.

Missed Moment Of Awesome (now Offscreen Moment Of Awesome) is not "they SHOULD have done it, it'd be cool." It's "they DID do it, and you never got to see it."
* StuffBlowingUp: We're [[ChekhovsGun explicitly told]] that if the dry hay catches fire, the entire barn will explode. [[spoiler:This [[MissedMomentOfAwesome does not happen]]. Pollack does use the hay to blow up Lazerov's car instead.]]
