    A great little piece of underrated action filmmaking. Smooth, easy-to-follow action, a decent plot to keep things moving, and an above average cast that turns in fine performances.

    Whether you know him best as an occasional actor, a martial arts champion, or a heavy metal singer, there is no doubting the fact that Johnny Strong is a very interested and talented guy. That's why I wanted to see his only leading role, unfortunately, the best part of this film, was it's soundtrack. Strong plays Detective Sean Riley, a cop who doesn't play by any rules. He recently lost his family and now he finds himself smack in the middle of a gang war, that he feels is getting help from inside his own department. On top of that, he's stuck with a new partner, a guy who is definitely not ready for where this investigation is about to go. As far as stories go, this one wasn't too bad, but the problem here is Johnny Strong. I like the guy a lot, when it comes to an actor who can put out a few funny lines and kick some ass, he's perfect, but the star of a feature film, he's not suited for that and it shows. The background story here is pretty solid, but due to the lack of acting skills, it isn't developed much, and we end up with a lot of heated profanity laced arguments, followed by gun fights. Your typical, basic, low budget, action film. There really wasn't anything special about this movie other than a few funny lines, unfortunately pretty much what I expected.

    Violent and entertaining as well as badly acted and poorly scripted dialogue.

    A gritty cop action thriller with a post-Katrina New Orleans background. Tightly directed with good acting and very good action sequences. Definitely and above average cop movie.

    TV quality, but nice supplement to Cage's "Bad Lieutenant". Good shootouts. Method Man, Flanery, Rutten and Mandylor keep it from being an entire cast of unknowns.

    Awesome action scenes and a semi-decent plot shot in New Orleans. Worth a watch.
