LAPD detective Tom Ludlow is a ruthlessly efficient, unorthodox undercover cop. Captain Jack Wander always covers for Tom, as do even his somewhat jealous colleagues. After technically excessive violence against a vicious Korean gang during the liberation of a kidnapped kid sex slave, Tom becomes the target of IA's hotshot, captain James Biggs, who feels passed over after Wander's promotion to chief. Tom's corrupt, disloyal ex-patrol partner Terrence Washington sides with IA but is killed during a shop robbery in Tom's presence. Written by
When Keanu Reeves character first meets Chris Evans character in his office, he subsequently leaves the office and says "Harry, I thought you were dead?" This is a reference to Speed (1994) where Keanu Reeves character has a partner called Harry (Jeff Daniels) who was killed early on in a house bombing. See more »
When Ludlow shoots the Korean guy who was sitting on a toilet, he falls and we see that he has his pants on and the toilet seat is actually down. Later, when Ludlow plants the weapon on the guard at the desk, we see over his shoulder that the toilet seat is now up. See more »
Action from beginning to end. I saw this with my sis and bro-in-law last night. We are all 50-ish grandparents and we loved it. Keanu Reeves is always getting bashed by the critics because he refuses to advertise his private life like Tom C. The man deserves his privacy, just like the rest of us. All the acting was top-notch, nothing over the top or wooden. Real testosterone, just like the law enforcers I know. You have to have the balls to be a cop these days. The Disco character was acted just like a brave newbie cop in over his head. He was not "wooden" If you like action from start to finish, go see this movie. This deserves to be a blockbuster!
