rough but top-notch shootout movie
6 March 2012 | by (Oosterhout, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The movie scenario is intriguing. In the post hurricane Katrina "city" of New Orleans normal life is very hard to come by. Virtually all the outer neighborhoods are today transformed into post-war battle field zones where mad-max alike gangs rule the streets. But something different recently started to happen. The Russian mob tries to move in, replacing and taking over strategic parts of the underworld. And they mean business as they bring para military branch ex-Afghanistan Russian mercenaries to sort out the details. Not that this is unusual, and did not happen before, but the outlandish brutal murders, involving repetitive gasoline burnings, are even beyond the Saffir–Simpson Scale of Hurricane Katrina itself. The script is pretty accurate in that it reveals that the Russian mobsters have the best Intel gathering on their side, with access to Amdocs phone records and Comverse Infosys phone tapping, bypassing all the local authorities, whose departments are still recovering from war-zone Katrina. All seems hopeless but here comes Sean Riley (Johnny Strong), the ex-Tora Bora gang buster, whose first shootout actions show unreal hit-rates , only using the official NOPD revolver and some extra rounds. The only unrealistic part of the script is where department chief Captain Trahan (Tom Berenger) visits Riley at home warning him that he might get arrested by internal affairs for to much outdoor shooting. It could imply though that internal affairs was already accepting marching orders from Mr. Rhykin (Das Boot Kapitan Jürgen Prochnow), the Russian mob boss. Saints and Sinners is a very well made movie with top-notch shootout scenes, which no-one i know wants to miss.
