Slater
21 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Christian Slater plays a man who inherits a police district from his older brother who was gunned down , played by Bruce Boxleitner. apparently San Francisco didn't have enough police,, so there was like citizen patrols broken up into districts is how it was explained in the movie,, so he takes over the district , and trouble follows him everywhere, he has to be trained by his peers because he has no law enforcement experience,, his girlfriend is Milla Jovovich,, really young in this movie. Lots of chases,, funny one liners,, car chases, pretty funny movie,, it's slightly above average,, not Christian's greatest work,, but definitely watchable,, and full of laughs.
