The action film “Striking Distance” starring Bruce Willis and Sarah Jessica Parker was released 25 years ago today on September 17, 1993. Willis plays a Pittsburgh homicide detective who is re-assigned to the River Rescue Squad after his father is murdered by a serial killer following a high speed chase. The killer escaped justice and the detective now patrols Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers while drinking heavily. Soon a new crime pattern emerges with bodies being dumped into the river with what appears to be the same mark as the original serial killer.
Of course, the best part of a movie that takes place mostly on the water is the opening car chase sequence! Nothing beats a good car chase and Striking Distance has a good one. Here it is for your viewing pleasure:
