Storyline

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 grantss

Goofs

The movie is set in Albuquerque, but when Jackie asks what's going to happen to Jimmy, Terry states, "I guess they'll ship him back to Rikers with another nickel on his sentence." Rikers Island is part of the NYC Department of Corrections. They would have no interest in further incarcerating a criminal who was convicted of a crime in New Mexico. As with most city jails, Rikers mainly houses pretrial suspects, with only about 15% of their detainees serving post-adjudication, short sentences. See more »

Good Ideas, Not Executed Properly
10 February 2017 | by MikeSNationSee all my reviews

If I had to give this film a pass-or-fail grade I would give it a thumbs up, but not very enthusiastically. A lot of the elements of this movie I really like on their surface, but for some reason they don't all come together as a cohesive and coherent motion picture. On the plus side the acting is good and a lot of the sardonic humour played very well for me.

On the down side this movie just seemed to have a lack of direction and a real "point" it was driving toward. I've read other reviews here about how the lack of point itself may be the point, but I think that is letting the filmmaker off the hook. I don't think that's really what they were going for.

It feels like they wanted at times to make a very black comedy about power, corruption, and the pointlessness of it all (for some), but at other times it's more of a light-hearted and sarcastic "buddy cop" flick, and they two just don't quite gel.

Good acting, it looks great, and a lot of funny moments make this a worthwhile watch though.
