This week's reviewed movie is:
Street Kings




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber


Street Kings is about a rule-breaking LAPD vice squad cop who finds life difficult to navigate after the sudden and troubling nature of his wife's death. Plus, evidence implicates him in the execution of his ex-partner.

He finds that he is forced to go up against the cop culture he's been a part of his entire career, leading him to question the loyalties of everyone around him.

Pay attention: this is not a chick flick nor a date movie.

Put on your raincoat, hard hat, and safety glasses.

Sporting a high body count, and some of the most laughable dialogue in years, Street Kings manages to keep the ultra-violence at the same level as its cliche-ridden script.

Come on -- Keanu Reeves as a dirty cop? Need I say more?

Fourteen years ago, actor Keanu Reeves played a Los Angeles good cop in the motion picture Speed.

Now he's back in uniform in the latest LA movie, Street Kings, playing a bad police officer who's fighting the cops and everybody else to prove that he didn't kill a fellow officer.

The things I didn't like about this film were: the crude, hammy dialogue, the ultra-violence, and the overkill.
