Better than I expected
22 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

In a post Katrina New Orleans, law and order is not the rule. This movie chronicles the efforts of a basically good cop trying to free The streets of New Orleans from the drug dealers that are overrunning it. There are other cops that are not so clean, but how far can you bend the law trying to do your job before it finally breaks. While the tactics used are sometimes less than socially acceptable, the intention of the best of them is drug free streets. When the FBI decides to investigate them, these officers have to more closely follow the law in their search for the head of the drug dealing. Val Kilmer was great in this movie and Sharon Stone finally played a character that was finally likable. She was eloquent and acted her age. While this wasn't the best movie I have seen recently, I really enjoyed watching it and would recommend it to others.
