David Cuevas is a family man who works as a gangland tax collector for high ranking Los Angeles gang members. He makes collections across the city with his partner Creeper making sure people pay up or will see retaliation. An old threat returns to Los Angeles that puts everything David loves in harm's way.
The film takes place in the same universe as the films "Training Day" and "Harsh Times," all written by director David Ayer. The Blood gang member character "Bone" (portrayed by Cle Sloan) appeared in Training Day. The film also references the existence of the fictional Latino gang "Hillside Trece," which was the gang Alonzo Harris had dealings with in Training Day, and the gang is mentioned in Harsh Times as well.

This movie has potential but everything goes to heck because of the extremely bad script.
First, you need to wait almost 60 minutes of 90 to see something interesting. Second, when the action starts everything goes extremely fast. Shia's character was barely developed. Are you serious?
Last, Fx's look cheap and acting amateurish, except from Shia. But...
So, overall a wasted opportunity to create a great movie. Shame on Director 's and writers. Make yourself a favor and watch Sicario 1 and 2 instead watching this one.
