Storyline

In a Los Angeles dominated by violent gangs and a corrupt LAPD Precinct, the dirty Officer Armando Sancho is haunted by his guilty since an innocent old man was accidentally killed in an operation with his also dirty partner Salim Adel. The Internal Affairs is pressing Sancho, who feels split between the loyalty to his mates and his conscience, and he has to make a statement at 6:00 PM. When his superiors Captain Spain and his Lieutenant assign the two cops for an operation dealing drugs apprehended by the police and stored as evidence with a powerful drug dealer, Sancho feels that something is wrong and they have been framed. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Better than I thought it would be - Still not very good.
3 February 2010 | by dalangstSee all my reviews

Probably would give it a six except the plot was just too bad. The actors, cinematography, etc. were mostly pretty good, but the story overall just wasn't interesting. None of the characters were even mildly interesting or charismatic. At least in Training Day, Denzel's character would come out with hilarious lines like, "You can shoot me, but you can't kill me." It uses some cheap ways to maintain your interest, for example, by showing this teenage girl who was mistreated and sexually assaulted by one of the cops working to seek revenge by purchasing a gun and the Internal affairs people talking to police chiefs about the two main characters impending session about the death of a bystander in a shootout... and then you get to the end, and you're like Really, that's the end.
