Movie Info

In this complex actioner, four of LA's most experienced cops are suspended for screwing up a drug bust with a major drug dealer by not waiting for backup and acting without the FBI's approval. The whole thing stinks of corruption to the four close friends, who strike out on their own investigations. Soon they discover a convoluted drug network involving some of the city's most prominent citizens, FBI agents, and rotten government officials from the lowest to the highest level; all of it is linked to arms negotiations with Central American freedom fighters.more

Audience Reviews for The Last Of The Finest

The Last Of The Finest is an okay action film that is saved by solid acting and decent action scenes. Unfortunately, this film has a problem of taking itself too seriously which is problematic because the plot isn't particularly good or engaging, making some parts of the film drag on for too long. Overall though, this film manages to save itself from being awful and is a decent action flick to watch if you haven't got anything better to do.
