Chris Fisher has directed an absorbing, sometimes surreal account of two Los Angeles policemen and their corrupt superiors, (Keith David and Cole Hauser), who have a rough time on the streets. This cynical police corruption epic is pretty tough stuff with Cuba Gooding, Jr., showing an entirely different side of himself as a low-life cop. Clifton Collins,Jr., as a former gangbanger turned patrolman must decide whether to talk to Internal Affairs or keep his mouth shut as his superiors prepare to sacrifice his partner and him to greedy druglords. There is an interesting subplot about a young girl that Gooding molests who sets out to kill him after she acquires a gun. Imagine PULP FICTION crossed with THE NEW CENTURIONS, and you will have a good idea of what to expect from this gritty urban tragedy.
