Chameleon is a suspenseful drama-thriller film that was released in 1995. The film stars Anthony LaPaglia, Kevin Pollak, and Melora Hardin in leading roles. The story takes place in the small town of Hillside, New Jersey, where an unknown cop-killer is on the loose. The film revolves around the character of Willie Serling, a successful and ambitious criminal defense attorney. Serling is a man of ethics and understands the law inside out. He is often called upon by law enforcement agencies to defend criminals who are at the mercy of the legal system. This time around, he is called in to defend the accused cop-killer, Eddie Lomax.

During a chase, Eddie was held responsible for killing a police officer, but he claims that he was only defending himself. Eddie's inability to articulate his traumatic experience makes his case even more challenging. Despite the weak evidence against him, Willie takes up the case and starts digging deeper into the details of the crime.

In his quest for justice, Willie finds himself in a dangerous situation as he uncovers a web of corruption, deceit, and betrayal. As he delves deeper into the case, he starts to realize that things are not as they seem. Every character in the story seems to be hiding something, and as the plot thickens, he realizes that he is dealing with an intricate conspiracy.

To solve the mystery, Willie enlists the help of a former colleague, Declan Quinn, who, after working for the FBI, has turned into a private investigator. Together they start investigating the case, and it is not long before they discover that the events surrounding Eddie Lomax's arrest have a lot more to them than meets the eye.

The movie keeps the audience hooked by building up suspense, throwing in unexpected plot twists, and introducing complex characters with their hidden agendas. The relationship between Willie and Declan is intriguing as they work together, trying to unravel the mystery while fighting their own demons.

The movie also explores the themes of corruption, loyalty, and trust. It raises questions about the fault lines present in the legal system and the thin line that separates good from evil. The movie's climax is intense, and it brings a fitting end to the story.

Chameleon is a well-crafted movie that will keep the audience on edge throughout the runtime. Although it might not be as popular as some of the more recent movies in the genre, this hidden gem is worth a watch. The performances from the actors, especially Anthony LaPaglia, Kevin Pollak, and Melora Hardin, are outstanding, and the plot is gripping.
