Casey offers Dunn a chance to escape from prison if he agrees to help kill a reclusive industrialist who is selling deadly biotech secrets on the black market. The hit goes terribly wrong resulting in the death of the First Lady who was attending the dedication of a medical building with the industrialist. Dunn discovers he has been set up as the triggerman and must rely on his survival skills to elude the massive manhunt tracking him through the streets of LA.

In the jungles of the Third World, his unsuspecting targets would hear nothing. They'd sense nothing. And they'd see only a glimmer before it was too late--he would strike and be gone. His shadowy government superiors called him the Glimmer Man, and they dispatched him on the riskiest, most sensitive covert assignments in which the United States was never officially involved. Now, as detective Jack Cole, he has abandoned his former occupation and identity. When a serial murderer with a macabre, ritualistic style plunges the families of Los Angeles into terror, the L.A.P.D. are forced to summon the one man whose instinct and understanding of the criminal mind are unrivaled: Jack Cole from New York. This time, in the urban jungle of Los Angeles, Cole is not the killer hunting prey, but the hunter seeking a killer. The iconoclastic Cole is paired with seasoned local homicide detective Jim Campbell, and the two quickly discover that their match was made somewhere other than heaven.

Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood (1996) as Mailman
Once in a great while, a movie about America comes along that is so disturbing it makes us care. It makes us think. And it makes tons of money.

Jungle fever isn't always pretty. And higher learning can be a total waste of time. It's a world where family values are still cherished and a steady job is the key to the future. In the tradition of NAKED GUN, AIRPLANE and I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA, DON'T BE A MENACE TO SOUTH CENTRAL WHILE DRINKING YOUR JUICE IN THE HOOD is a parody of 'hood movies of the last five years.
