Josh Pollack, a naive and ambitious reporter, is convinced the F.R.A.T., an elite force within the Edison Police Department, is corrupted. Working on a homicide case, he begins to unearth evidence which suggests that the entire justice system is willingly turning a blind eye to the abuses of the this force. When his life and that of his girlfriend are threatened from his research, he join forces with his editor, a once-famous reporter, and a renown private detective to bring down the F.R.A.T. and every one behind it.

When Sgt. Frances Lazerov is chasing one of the bank robbers in the beginning of the movie, he says "Come out, come out, wherever You are". Which is a line taken from the movie The Third Man - originally spoken by Harry Lime (Orson Welles). See more »
When Lazerov kills the drug dealer in the opening scene, he doesn't even use the revolver they plant as the murder weapon to kill him, he uses his police issued 9mm. an unfired gun with a different type bullet would obviously reveal foul play. See more »
You're a big venue now. Global commerce, sports franchises, chit chat cafés. But you don't get it, because you don't see it. Life is not what you think it is. Because of guys like us, you can go on thinking it, 'til reality sets in. Reality's a motherfucker.

Wow. I do not think I have ever seen a movie with so many great actors that had such a pivotal role so miscast. Justin Timberlake is perhaps the single worst actor to land a bigtime role in a movie with the star power and money behind it that Edison had.
His acting was PAINFUL to observe. The story was OK and all the other characters were played by professional actors, heck, even LL Cool J was fine since he has had numerous small parts to cut his teeth on. How the director and movie company figured that Timberlake was ready for this role there is no way to comprehend.
His character ruins the entire experience since every time he is on screen you are actually rooting for the corrupt cops to cap his sorry ass, and he is supposed to be the hero... I would not waste money on this one at the theater or on video. MAYBE if you have HBO and have NOTHING else to do at 2am on a Saturday night and you are drunk and stoned, this may be OK.
Watching Timberlake in this role was like watching a human 'Kermit the Frog' act in a Hollywood Blockbuster, just didn't work at all.
