The story of two corrupt cops. One with good intentions, in the wrong place. The other one with bad intentions, also at the wrong place. It's a drama, with a little action, and a sad insight in corrupt cop life.
The filming is great. Just the intro is a masterpiece in itself. The different transitions flow together smoothly and the special effects all appear at the right moment. Some of them are so good you almost don't notice when they're cut, must be the best transitions I've ever seen in a movie. I spot Wyclef Jean in the short note of credits and think this movie will truly be great, but it isn't.
The actors or good, the filming is genius and the plot is a smart one as well. All the characters have clear personality displays, the plot is complex, the lighting is always right and theres a sort of brown/depressing hue in the whole thing. It really is a great movie, so why don't I like it? It's just not what I like watching. It progresses slowly, contains little action, no beautiful sceneries, no heroes, no anger, no love, just normal emotionless street life. And it's not just depressing, it's just... dull. Even with magnificent filmography, it's not enough.
rated 2/5: decent
