This is a good story about two underpaid undercover cops trying to do the right thing while surrounded by corruption.
It was a little slow and hard to follow at the beginning and seemed to jump around a bit, but the story does develop well and has some twists and turns that keep it interesting and entertaining right to the end. Does contain graphic violence, not unlike most movies in this genre.
Although the storyline is quite different, the pace and presentation of the movie reminded me a little of "Training Day" and although I'm not usually a big fan of jerky camera work, they made good use of it in this movie to really draw you into some of the action.
