Two young officers are marked for death after confiscating a small cache of money and firearms from the members of a notorious cartel, during a routine traffic stop.
This movie wasn't too bad. I am going to school to become a cop and noticed many errors with how they would conduct themselves in certain situations. I suppose I live in small town America so in my state maybe things wouldn't be quite the same as in the big city of LA. This movie reminded me a lot of the show Southland. That is also a good show so that didn't bother me too much. If you're a fan of cop shows you should like this one. There is enough suspense that you shouldn't go away too unsatisfied. 6/10
Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena are partners, patrolling the crime-infested neighborhoods of Los Angeles. Terrific acting combined with the intimacy of the hand-held camera lends pivotal and realistic credence to a world that exists, but one we shun and pray never graces our doorstep. For those with sensitivities the "F" word replaces "Like" as part of the vernacular.
