    Synopsis


    Street Kings
    In the wake of the L.A. riots, an LAPD vice detective who always went above and beyond the call of duty to keep the streets safe receives a startling wake-up call that leaves him convinced he can no longer employ the tactics that made him so effective in his work. LAPD veteran Tom Ludlow (Keanu Reeves) has borne personal witness to the worst that the streets have to offer, and when his partner, Detective Terrance Washington (Terry Crews), is killed the violence strikes a bit too close to home. Now Ludlow is on a mission to bring his partner's killer to justice, though Captain Walker (Forest Whitaker) is concerned that the hotheaded detective is taking the case too personally. Now, as Captain Walker attempts to convince Ludlow to work within the confines of the law, Internal Affairs Captain Biggs (Hugh Laurie) begins following the vengeful lawman's every move. In order to accomplish his mission, Ludlow recruits fresh-faced Robbery Homicide Detective Diskant (Chris Evans) to trace Washington's killers through the winding streets of Los Angeles. Later, when Ludlow and Diskant come face to face with the remorseless cop killers, they must chose between upholding the law and seeking bitter vengeance. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Street Kings was hyped up to be a great movie. I can recall the theatrical trailers for it. It looked great. The problem is that the best parts of the movie were in the trailers. The movie does have some SHORT action sequences (only about 30 sec long). The movie is too slow. Keanu Reeves, Forest Whitaker, and Hugh Laurie are the meat and potatoes of the cast. Lots of cameos including The Game, Common, Cederic "the Entertainer", etc I would recommend this movie as a rental, as it has low replay value.

      This is a great movie, as are all of David Ayer's movies. Great actors, story, and action. This is just not another gritty cop movie, it is one of the best in Ayer's series, Street Kings, End Of Watch, And Sabotage.

      Have seen a couple of these movies a few years back and decided to purchase them after watching previews on an older Blu-ray. I wasn't disappointed.
