Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe Deacon is sent to Los Angeles for what should have been a quick evidence-gathering assignment. Instead, he becomes embroiled in the search for a serial killer who is terrorizing the city.
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

There was no way I was going to skip this movie with the great actors in it. That being said, I could only give it a 6 because the story/script wasn't worth much more than that. The ending is not your classic ending, which would have been fine with a great story/script, but since it wasn't, the ending was underwhelming. Still though, I got some enjoyment out of the actors.
