Street Kings


USA 2008, 108 minutes
Dir. David Ayer
Genres: Action/Adventure, Suspense/Crime / Policier


Aroview: LA CONFIDENTIAL author James Ellroy and the writer of TRAINING DAY team up for this ultra-macho, ultra-violent LAPD-centric thriller focused on a senior cop (Reeves) disillusioned with life and the seedy side of the force after the recent death of his wife and suspicions he was involved in the death of a fellow officer.

The clichéd tough-talkin’ dialogue and run-of-the-mill crooked cop storyline will test the tolerance levels of some, but others will find this cinematic equivalent of a halfway-decent crime novel delivers an entertainingly grimy, if somewhat cynically dated, take on the morally bankrupt side of the thin blue line.
