Eddie Trumbull (Viggo Mortensen) and Bobby Diaz (Lou Diamond Phillips) are detectives about to get their gold shields. Following SOP, they call Crockett and Tubbs for help executing a search warrant, unaware the residence door is rigged with explosives. Oops. Trumbull doesn’t make it to the opening credits.
Eddie and Bobby are appealing characters–young, energetic, good-humored, playful but still serious about their jobs.
