Trivia

In one scene Pepe compares Val Kilmer's character to Moses. Kilmer played the voice of Moses in the animation The Prince of Egypt (1998). See more »

Goofs

It's mentioned that someone gets home before the eleven o'clock news. There is no eleven o'clock news in New Orleans which is on CST, so the news is at ten o'clock. See more »

Met my modest expectations
15 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Val Kilmer...what happened? Not to say Streets of Blood is that bad of a movie, but what happened to Heat? Played? Hmm. Surprised to see Sharon Stone too.

Anyway, Streets follows Andy Devereaux (Kilmer) and his new partner Stan (50 Cent) and their efforts to rid the New Orleans Police Department of unnecessary corruption. Unnecessary because Andy and Stan have decided to take the law into their own hands. So have two other officers (Brian Presley and Jose Pablo Cantillo), however their exploits led to the death of an undercover DEA agent. An investigator (from the city, naturally) (Michael Biehn btw)comes down to check on all of these characters. Sharon Stone meanwhile sits around and asks straightforward questions to our heroes.

The acting...is what you'd expect from a straight to DVD movie. On the part of Kilmer and Biehn, it's great. Especially Biehn, who's the best performance in the film. Fiddy is okay. Jose Pablo Cantillo is pretty good too as a foul mouthed cop. Couldn't help but think of Mark Wahlberg's character from The Departed. I was surprised to see Barry Shabaka Henley, one of those "that guy" actors that you know-but-not-by-name. He was Cptn. Friendly. By far Sharon Stone is the worst, her accent is indescribably bad.

It's exactly what you expect, nothing more, nothing less. Maybe I'll watch it again, someday.
