A triple bill of thrillers. In 'Ricochet' ambitious cop Nick Styles (Denzel Washington) becomes a media celebrity as a result of his capture of hit-man Earl Talbot Blake (John Lithgow). But while he basks in the glow of the public's esteem, the psychotic Blake plots his jailbreak, and his ultimate revenge. In 'Once in the Life' Mike (Laurence Fishburne) and Torch (Titus Welliver) are two half-brothers who join forces in a plan to rip-off a heroin deal. The pair manage to grab the money, but it's not long before drug kingpin Manny Rivera (Paul Calderon) finds out who did it and hires killer Tony (Eamon Walker) to track them down. Features an original score by jazz musician Branford Marsalis. Finally, in 'A Murder of Crows' disgraced attorney Lawson Russell (Cuba Gooding Jr) is having trouble writing his first novel and is also fast running out of cash. So when he is given the opportunity to steal a manuscript from a dead man, the temptation proves too great and he soon publishes the work under his own name. The book proves to be a bestseller, but before he has chance to enjoy the success, Lawson is arrested for the murders described in the book. Can he now use his legal prowess to prove that he is not a serial killer?
