Has Potential, but Is Very Confused
11 July 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In New Orleans after the Katrina, the partner of Detective Andy Devereaux (Val Kilmer) is found dead and he teams up with Stan Green (50 Cent) that becomes his new partner. During the investigations, am undercover DEA agent is murdered by two dirty police officers, and the psychologist Nina Ferraro (Sharon Stone) has successive interviews with Andy, Stan and the two detectives. Meanwhile, the FBI also investigate the corruption in the police force leaded by Agent Brown (Michael Biehn).

"Streets of Blood" is a police story that has potential, but fails since it is very confused. The theme of corruption in the police is also interesting, but the messy screenplay of this movie ruins the story. The camera and the cinematography are poor and the edition of the DVD is awful with a terrible framing. Sharon Stone is unrecognizable. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Ruas de Sangue" ("Streets of Blood")
