Foxx Can't Save This One...It Stinks.
18 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jamie Foxx can't really save this movie though he's probably the bright spot here no doubt. Foxx gets to play a heavy cop fairly straight to which he's up to that. He's better though when his penchant for humor is front and center. It's the overall same old drug/cop story and way too over-the-top constant cat and mouse action that brings things down. Not much meat and lots of filler.

This is a confusing ride about a corrupt bunch of law folks and their involvement in the drug business out of Las Vegas. We think Foxx's character, Vincent, is dirty for much of the film. I guess that adds some cloak and dagger extra baggage that's supposed to be clever? While I did find Foxx's character interesting I felt as if he wasn't ever equipped to be a one-man hall of justice. Going it alone, for the most part, he had to survive too many sure-fire deadly encounters with his own, and his hostage son's, life. Everything just kept getting worse to which believable realism was jettisoned.. The makers must have thought if they could bring the action bigger that credibility wouldn't matter? They forgot it was trying to be a real crime thriller early on.

in the end there was too much silly action and not enough possible truth. This may prove Foxx can also be an action star, but this movie is entirely disposable and will be forgotten as fast as one leaves the theater. Foxx can't change that even as he survives to be declared a "good cop". I recommend a pass as there are too many much better crime flicks that respect the viewer's time with something approaching reality. This is a silly fail.
