Storyline

Deke (Denzel Washington), a burnt-out Kern County, CA deputy sheriff teams up with Baxter (Rami Malek), a crack LASD detective, to nab a serial killer. Deke's nose for the "little things" proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, Deke must wrestle with a dark secret from his past. Written by cochiseledoux

Was expecting more out of this movie ....
31 January 2021 | by bobmcgloneSee all my reviews

I am a fan of all the actors in this movie ... especially Denzel, but the storyline was kind of dusty. Not much wow factor and not your typical Denzel movie - the acting was fine but the story was just ok.
