Err, Worest Fiticker would have been searched and wouldn't have a knife and gun on him. It's filmmakers cheats that weaken a potentially good movie into more odf a crappio one. Silly.

Awful. Films that are dark must be substantive, feature outstanding performances, and offer some sense of purpose and realism. Freelances does none of these things. There are no heroes in this film and no characters worthy of audience investment; from the beginning of the movie, we're waiting for the end. Even Robert De Niro cannot redeem this mess of cop cliche and poor film-making. I think we've learned that 50 Cent is two quarters short of solid acting ability. Time to make change...

Dirigida por Jessy Terrero nos llega esta película sobre la corrupción policial. 50 Cent es 'Malo' Maldonado un joven policía recién graduado que ha dejado atrás una vida de delincuencia en la calle junto a dos de sus amigos. Será reclutado por Sarcone (Robert DeNiro) un policía corrupto que lidera a un grupo encargado de manejar las calles y las drogas y que siempre reciben su parte. Deberá aprender las mañas propias de un policía corrupto de su nuevo compañero LaRue (Forest Whitaker) mientras sus compañeros y grandes amigos aprenden con compañeros completamente distintos en un mundo cargado de corrupción, racismo, prejuicios, violencia, sexo y drogas. Malo, con la sombra de su padre a cuestas, deberá decidir entre el bien y el mal.. o alguna tercera opción.

She ran off with your balls, kid.

The son of a slain cop has also decided to join the police force after years of thinking it wasn't for him. He impresses quickly and is identified as a potential candidate to join the same special unit his father was on. He discovers the special unit is corrupt and will need to decide to play along or bring it down.

"Pick a girl. Have some fun."

Jessy Terrero, director of Soul Plane, Gun, and the upcoming Pursuit, delivers Freelancers. The storyline for this picture is fairly cliché and straightforward. The action is okay and the script is very mediocre. The characters aren't overly well written or interesting. The cast delivers mediocre performances and includes Robert De Niro, 50 Cent, Forest Whitaker, and Anabelle Acosta.

"Sometimes it's a woman that kicks you in the balls the hardest."

I recently came across this on Netflix and decided to give it a shot. This is a cliché picture within the genre with a very straightforward and unimaginative plot, like a poor man's Training Day. I don't recommend this and would probably skip it unless nothing else is on.

"I'll leave the light on for you."

Grade: D

2 sense offense. Sight and sound. Just horrible. The writer an director should be banned from filmmaking for life. Mr. Deniro, Mr. Whitaker, what dirt does 50 cent have on you? You are better than this! Potential viewers, stay far, far, away.

This movie was terrible. It was boring and the plot was stupid and unbelievable. Horrible acting and very forgettable.

Robert Deniro & Forest Whitaker carried this movie. If it wasn't for them, this would be one big mess. But because of them its just a mess.

Horrible horrible portrait of Jackson (50c). He should not have been used for this movie. I reckon USED is the proper term for this kind of blunders which will not have any discretion on the term of ACTING. Any movie will be better off without these type of people.

The movie ONLY just relay on power performances from Forest Whitaker and Robert De Niro.
Suffice to say complete waste of time.

Decent movie. 50 is a decent actor i give him that. The same theme went over and over and over etc fairly predictable but still decent.

If point of movie is to depress you, well done. Not because the movie is filled with emotion, but because you realize you will never get that time back.

I thought this one is one of 50's best movies, you can't go wrong with Robert De Niro in the film.

Called Freelancers in the US but Crossfire in the UK, this is a straight to dvd release that only caught my interest because of Robert De Niro. There are no good guys in this film which always makes it hard to root for any of the characters which gives the film no purpose really. De Niro and Forest Whitaker keep the film barely afloat. For a film whose central character has no morals, it was a difficult task accepting him as the good guy by the end.
