Classic Cops and Robbers flick- best firefights since Heat!
This is a classic cops and robbers tale of the type you don't see anymore, plus being a huge fan of Butler loved it even more. Macho testosterone fueled action of the type Arnold, Stallone and Willis did back in the 80's and 90's.
Butler is Far superior as a action star than Statham or The Rock. A true successor to those 80's icons.
Sure its not gonna win any Oscars but for a plain good time with tons of action and macho posturing, and for a welcome change from all the Netflix Sci-Fi fare, this is all you need!
Plus its has the best gunfights since DeNiro and Pacino went at it in Heat.
Trust me you don't wanna miss the gunfights.
