Boiling Point

Boiling Point Information

Boiling Point is a 1993 action-thriller film written and directed by James B. Harris, and starring Wesley Snipes, Dennis Hopper, Lolita Davidovich, Viggo Mortensen and Dan Hedaya.


This film opens with police officer Jimmy Mercer (Wesley Snipes) and his partner (Dan Hedaya) doing some undercover work, when Mercer's partner is shot and killed by a new man, Ronnie (Viggo Mortensen) that criminal Red Diamond (Dennis Hopper) pulled out of jail. Now on a snap of anger and thoughts of revenge, Mercer wants to find the killer and take him down before he gets transferred to another precinct. Although a cop and close colleague claims over dinner that Mercer must do it "by the book," Mercer replies that "when I'm done with this motherfucker, I'm gonna put him in a box..... by the book."

Red continues to try to build a relationship with one of his old girlfriends but fails. Through explosions and action, Mercer's temper rises with the suspense.

At a club which Mercer is at, coincidentally at the same time as Red and Ronnie, the latter pulls out his gun on the second floor, to which Mercer quickly reacts by unloading all six rounds of his snubnose .38 into Ronnie. Red is arrested. Justice is served.


The film earned negative reviews from critics. It currently holds a 20% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 10 reviews.
