Two corrupt cops set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. Events, however, are complicated by the arrival of someone who appears to be even more dangerous than they are.
Bob Bolano and Terry Monroe are two crooked Albuquerque PD detectives. They tend to hustle criminals but their methods have landed them in hot water with their boss, and they are on their last warning. They get wind of a heist and decide to muscle in on the action, robbing the perpetrators. Unfortunately for them, the mastermind of the heist is someone out of their league, someone they would do well to fear.Written by
The director said when Garrett Hedlund dropped out three weeks before shooting began, he was given a list of six actors he could potentially choose from, three he dropped immediately. He went on to choose Skarsgard because of a YouTube video he saw of him drunk at a football match, in which he's trying to whip the rest of the crowd in a frenzy as he thought they were being too quiet. He thought this made him perfect for the role of Terry. See more »
As he is walking across the street, Bob pulls out his pistol and racks the slide. This would either eject the round in the chamber, which it does not appear to do, or load a cartridge. In any case, a police officer would always carry his firearm loaded, and would never need to do such a thing. See more »

Well, now you know.

Love These Guys!!
You have to be over 40 to understand this movie....I could have watched it another 10 times to get some of the foreshadowing that I missed.
It's not too over the edge...but just enough.
The movie moves at a good pace too keep you wanting more.
And you may hate these guys at first....but you will like them in the end.
I don't usually write reviews....but I thought this was worth it.
The acting was good....and action was perfect.
Can't wait for #2!!
PS... Have a beer and a puff....will make it even better!!!
