Downtown is a 1990 police action film directed by Richard Benjamin and Starring Forest Whitaker, Joe Pantoliano and Anthony Edwards. This would be the second pairing of Edwards and Whitaker whom both were in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.


Police Officer Alex Kearney (Edwards) is a patrolman in a rich plush suburb of Philadelphia until he stops an important businessman and his story of the incident is not believed. He is sent to work Downtown, the most dangerous, crime filled precinct in the city. Everyone there is sure that this 'by the book' suburb pampered cop is going to get himself and whoever is assigned as his partner, killed. Sergeant Dennis Curren (Whitaker) draws the unfortunate 'babysitting' assignment but when Alex's best friend is killed investigating a stolen car, Alex throws the book out the window tracking down the killer.
