Cast / crew
A team of highly organised bank robbers make a strange demand: they will only deal with disgraced, suspended cop Quentin Conners. The Captain reinstates him to Detective and assigns him a babysitter, Shane Dekker, but as the situation progresses Dekker is surprised to find Conners is nothing like his reputation.
This is what you’re looking for from the B-movie thriller shelf: a crisp and pacy cops and robbers story which surprises you by being more involving and less predictable than you’re expecting. Statham is the maverick cop but, it’s odd, he’s sensible, calm, in control and follows the rules. It’s not the only surprise from the film. The cool explosions from the trailer are actually in the film, a biker assists a cop who needs his bike, Ryan Philippe’s rookie detective gets winded after a vehicle accident, the story never stagnates and the French poster seems to have a picture of Gregory Hines on it for some reason (it’s supposed to be Wesley Snipes).
This movie contains sexual swear words, adult dialogue and violence, gory and unpleasant scenes and brief non-sexual nudity.
