Even though this type of movie has been done a million times this is a very good movie that is worth a watch. I say B+
"This is N'Awlins white boy, you ain't seen nothing' yet." After a call goes horribly bad Detective Sean Riley (Strong) is given a new partner. Trying to cope with a failed marriage, the death of his son, and a series of brutal murders that is affecting the entire city he is a very unstable officer. When clues lead to something bigger then either expected it is up to the two new partners to work together and stop the ring before it's too late. Lately the "cop revenge" movies have been very slow and not exciting to watch (Blood Out/Set Up). This one, while slow in parts, is very good. I tried as hard as I could not to compare the two, but this one reminded me of a harsher "Lethal Weapon". There really is nothing new in this movie. A loose cannon of a detective is teamed with a family man who is by the book, the two somehow can work together and yada...yada...yada. Even though this is a movie that has been done to death it is still very enjoyable and very much worth watching. I really enjoyed it. Overall, one of the few repetitive type movies that is exciting and worth a watch. I give it a B+.
