it's the first time that a wwe production actually not bad
30 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is the first movie produced by wwe that i think is NOT BAD only but pretty good instead. the screenplay chose big-easy new orlean as the locale was a nice touch, it allowed us to have the opportunity to see some of the beautiful houses in the better neighborhood of new orlean where hurricane katrina luckily didn't destroy. those houses and the front yards are just wordlessly beautiful! love it! Adam Copeland (Edge) who played the maverick cop did a nice and natural performance in this film. but i have to say that Jamie Kennedy who played the tight-arse asst. d.a. actually saved the whole movie. he performed extremely well in this movie. watching him suffered so much and so many tormented moments in this movie almost made the audiences pity him. there were some dialog that was so funny to reflect adam copeland's real marriage history: divorced twice, just like the role he played, the dialog made him say that he already got two ex and he know what his nemesis asst. d.a. said about the divorce and the limited time to visit kids. a dialog subtly matching the real life of a character was indeed a nice touch. i kinda enjoyed this movie except the ending seemed to be a bit rush and forced.
