Storyline

The script centers on two policemen, one an old-timer (Gibson), the other his volatile younger partner (Vaughn), who find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics become the media's cause du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due, but instead find far more than they wanted awaiting them in the shadows.

one of the best of '18/19 that no one will see.. Unfortunately
22 March 2019 | by ryanwcarSee all my reviews

This is a slow burn in every possible way. Much more related to his previous film cell block 99 than his Bone Tomahawk before that. It's a step by step play the entire film almost 0 editing and everything falls right in order of the story and it's the strongest point of the film. Some might yawn at the long run time but In my opinion it's justified. I was never bored or needed to pause to take a break for the entire 2 hours and 35 minutes of showing because at any point you think it's going to drag across concrete and fall flat on itself it gives you just enough to continue the show and boy does it become a show... But without giving away anything at all I can say it was worth my time and if you liked his previous work it's worth yours as well. The acting is top tier all around and the script is probably one of the most creatively worded I've ever seen with humor all over it just because of it but in a great intentional way. Just a shame only a few lucky ones will get the chance to see it but I'm glad this Writer/Director doesn't do wide release because we'd be seeing a different version and probably not for the better... and I applaud him for giving Vince Vaughn the roles he deserves he knocked it out of the park alongside Gibson. 9/10
