By-the-Books and Tame, but Fast and Pleasantly Silly Enough to Entertain
15 November 2019 | by TwistedContentSee all my reviews

Steven C. Miller has been pumping out thrillers for a few years now, "Line of Duty" is neither his best or worst, its his usual - average. However, it's a light and easy watch, home screen entertainment is provided by lots of action, an eventful albeit oversimplified plot, recognizable actors & mild comedy consisting of familiar kind of jokes.

Let's just say I was a little less grumpier after seeing "Line of Duty", 'cause while it is quite shallow, cliché and, well, flawed, it's also light and fun for anyone who enjoys thrillers and crime flicks in the comfort or their own couch. The cast definitely helped, Aaron Eckhart did what he's supposed to, Giancarlo Esposito didn't have the amount of screen time I was expecting & as I'm a guy who's seen all the episodes of "Gotham", it was very cool seeing Ben Mckenzie in a movie for the first time (and as a villain!). Story's rather simple, the usual police thriller type of stuff, infused, of course, with a character who brings millennial vibes and culture into the script. That's starting to look more and more like a mandatory thing in movies nowadays. Don't get me wrong though, it didn't take away from the movie. Gotta live with the times, right. Towards the ending the plot gets more underwhelming, but it all ends on kind of silly yet a positive note, cranks out a smile. Thankfully, visually, while looking like a standard 2010's mid-tier action thriller, it's still appealing enough, decently shot and edited. I also noticed a few nice stunts.

Basically, once you throw realism out the door and don't expect any smart innovations, you're in for a forgettable but enjoyable ride. On one hand, Steven C. Millers filmography amazes me, but on the other, as a sum, it's barely scratching the average line. I think the guy has more potential, if he'd just slow down a little. My rating: 5/10.
