Storyline

Josh Pollack, a naive and ambitious reporter, is convinced the F.R.A.T., an elite force within the Edison Police Department, is corrupted. Working on a homicide case, he begins to unearth evidence which suggests that the entire justice system is willingly turning a blind eye to the abuses of the this force. When his life and that of his girlfriend are threatened from his research, he join forces with his editor, a once-famous reporter, and a renown private detective to bring down the F.R.A.T. and every one behind it. Written by Ploy P.

Quotes

[first lines]
Deed: You're a big venue now. Global commerce, sports franchises, chit chat cafés. But you don't get it, because you don't see it. Life is not what you think it is. Because of guys like us, you can go on thinking it, 'til reality sets in. Reality's a motherfucker.

Positively surprised
5 April 2006 | by dancing_sandraSee all my reviews

This movie was much better than i expected it would be. The fact that now also Justin Timberlake is acting made me think that as long as you are famous you can do anything you want. Like why is Paris Hilton singing? I am kind of drifting off, what i really want to say is that i was positively surprised I actually thought that Justin was very good and even ll cool j was better than expected. The plot of the movie wasn't that great because in the end everything just went to easy hut i guess in movies everything is possible. If you are a Timberlake fan you will not be disappointed and i even dare to say that when you are not a Timberlake fan you will also enjoy this movie. I am not saying Oscars but it was definitely amusing and worth seeing.
