Storyline

The script centers on two policemen, one an old-timer (Gibson), the other his volatile younger partner (Vaughn), who find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics become the media's cause du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due, but instead find far more than they wanted awaiting them in the shadows.

One of the Worst Movies I've Ever Seen
24 March 2019 | by npkulakofskiSee all my reviews

I walked out of this movie, even though I had really wanted to stay till the end to see how everything played out. I just can't understand the good reviews this film has garnered. All the characters are stock, even caricature, the plot thin and utterly unintelligent, and the whole hackneyed, stereotypical mess bored me to tears. I think in this movie Mel Gibson forgot how to act. Don't waste your time or your money.
