There are way too many plots here to make any of them appear relevant. Police currption can be interesting and so can the portrayls of dirty cops when done correctly (i.e. The Departed). Here however there is really nothing but a mish-mash of bad people with personal agendas that are not interesting. As always there is that one lone savior- who also as always is Keanu Reeves.

David Ayers latest foray into the cop movie is a successful but small step backwards from the awesome Harsh Times. Given the right role Keanu Reeves can pull it off with relative ease and is not in anyway a distraction here despite it being the general negative people have going into this film. While it certainly doesn't break any new ground not all movies have to. It had me interested from the beginning with the awesome take no nonsense busting heads characters. The outcome is a predictable one, but since its not played like a big mystery all hinging on some big reveal it's not a problem. If you need a better look into the dirty cop window watch The Shield.

Not a real good movie

LAPD "Det. Tom Ludlow" (Keanu Reeves) is spiraling out of control. He has lost his wife to another man, and has taken to the bottle. He also rarely follows regulations, and has been known to beat information out of suspects.

In fact, his unit is known for covering up for all their wrong-doings, including the unit's commander (Forest Whitaker), who has taken "Ludlow" under his wing.

After saving two girls from kidnappers, and covering up what really happened, "Ludlow's" former partner (Terry Crews) goes to internal affairs, which opens an investigation on "Ludlow."

When he hears about the investigation, "Ludlow" goes to confront his former partner in a corner store, only to get involved in an apparent robbery, but witnesses the two suspects hunting down the whistle-blower, and sho...

Keanu Reeves is As Stoic As a Rock

I was reluctant to see this film because of its many negative reviews. However, upon seeing it, I really wasn't that bad. Sure, Keanu Reeves is as stoic as a rock but I didn't really notice until I chose to think about it. The tone of the film is uneven because I feel like it tried too hard to get its point across about the inside workings (and the corrupt minds) of authority figures. But when things got intense, it was fascinating and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. There are a plethora of familiar faces here, including Dr. House A.K.A. Hugh Laurie, a guy who is seemingly in every indie romantic comedies--Jay Mohr, and "Prison Break"'s Amaury Nolasco. Surprisingly, I liked Chris Evans a lot in this picture. I didn't hate him like I did in "Fantastic Four." But the script i...

Departed Confidential

If you take an old storyline then you add a few bits and pieces of twists and turns then voilà you've got Street Kings. The story is something you probably seen and heard a thousand times before. The only difference is the character that’s in it. If I could rename the title I'd probably name this Departed Confidential. Keanu's acting is mediocre and nothing too different from his previous cop role in Speed. I would have rather liked to see Terry Crews do his robot dance than seeing him do a minute of air time. The only plus side I see is the whole underground take on L.A's mean streets. Common also did something worthy even for a very short amount of time. And also we don't have to worry about Hugh Laurie quitting his day job, he won't be doing that anytime soon after a forgettable perfor...
