A hyper-aggressive and thoroughly repugnant piece of comic-book juvenalia.
Hyperactive yet feeble, Officer Downe has no real story and no point of view-just endless, assaultive testosterone.
This is what a Troma movie might be like with misogyny and entitlement in place of vision and actually having something to say.
Officer Downe is brought to us by clown #6 in Slipknot. Maybe films directed by clowns #1-5 are far less misogynist. We'll never know.
It's just not very good.
Funny in bits and pieces but can't sustain a film.
Fans of campy, gory fight scenes loaded with absurdist humor should go ahead and get in line.
While a lot of the movie feels disjointed and doesn't necessarily succeed in its efforts, the parts that do come together in Officer Downe give the movie some really weird and wildly fun moments.
If you thought Deadpool was perverse, you ain't seen nothin' yet.
Officer Downe has nearly every element it needs to be an over-the-top, gross-out, truly funny, deeply weird, comic book adaptation, and some driving music to boot. These disparate elements, however, never jell into a single whole.
When Crahan is on, there's a hardcore griminess to Officer Downe that's sadistically stylized and punishingly powerful.
The concept is what caught my eye but after the 30 minute mark I started looking at the clock. You can see heavy influences from the Crank series, they could never replicate that films craziness elsewhere. The plot is very weak, these types of film rarely overcome the gimmick that gave the film its funding. The film is a massive music film clip which is a result of the filmmakers background. I can't see a future cult film but I suspect others might find something here. The campiness is not here, the acting is a little too good or maybe it is a result of quality actors. The film isn't terribly bad but it doesn't come close to the ambition it was attempting. I'm puzzled that an actor like Sam Witwer is attracted to such a dull film, he normally has a presence that has largely gone unnoticed, severely underrated. 05-11-2017.
