Boring! 3/10
1 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: I stupidly thought that this was going to be an action movie about cops taken out the bad guys, but it turned out to be a slow drama about a highly decorated cop who has a drink with his colleagues after a successful bust, and on the way home he mistakenly clips a bike rider with his wing mirror which causes innocent young kid to crash to the floor. He then calls the paramedics because the accident looks pretty serious and the head of the investigating team decides to cover up the fatal accident and put it down to the officer finding the kid on the floor. The movie is extremely slow and it seemed to be going round and round in circles. The officer who caused the accident wanted to admit the whole accident right from the beginning so the movie seemed a bit pointless. Its all about the officers guilt and how he deals with the fact that he put this little kid in critical condition. Although it's a deep drama that deals with an emotional subject matter, I personally found it pretty boring and nothing really happens for ages. It started of quite promising, with the edgy shootout, but then it goes dramatically downhill after the accident happens. Anyway, it could have been much better if they added a bit of action but the director chose to keep it as straight drama which was a bad choice from my point of view. Disappointing!

Round-Up: I'm usually a fan of Joel Eggerton, who was great in Animal Kingdom and the Great Gatsby, but his performance in this movie was average. I think that the fault has to be with the director who didn't allow him to go deep into the tricky situation. Jai Courtney, who was terrible in A Good Day To Die Hard and Divergent, hasn't really been that impressive in his roles yet, but he still has some time to shine at the young age of 28. Tom Wilkinson on the other hand has been getting a lot of work lately and he always put in a great performance. At the age of 67 and with big movies like Batman Begins, The Grand Budapest Hotel and his emotional performance in Michael Clayton, I doubt that this small movie will hurt his reputation and in my personal opinion, he was the best thing in this film. Anyway, the whole movie was based in Australia and I'm certain that the money that was backing the movie came from Australia so maybe that's why they didn't try to make it into a big crime thriller like the Hollywood distributors would have.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their deep dramas about a cop who causes an accident after a drink with his work colleagues and has to deal with the guilt when the crime is covered up. 3/10
