it's like Kill Bill but with without Tarentino talkies.
3 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Decent movie, but the ending will leave you hanging.... In a Thai hotel room..... Because that's supposed to be pleasurable. (?)

Basically, from a philosophical standpoint, "Good cop, Bad Cop" defines the duality of all reality, with undertones of sarcasm. It's a brutal punch the face in the mirror movie that makes one ponder their very existence on this flawed, floating mud ball we over-habitate.

Kill them all and let the deity of your choice sort them out is the clear statement of this film.

In summation, a movie lavish with intrigue, excitement, unpopular actors and and one saving grace: a sexy performance by Mr. Carridine that really choked me to the depths of my soul.
