Street Kings @ Movie Review

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Boy, and I thought only Hong Kong makes the best Police & Triad genre movie!

The story was about the corrupt police force in LAPD. Tom Ludlow (Keanue Reeves),a police office from a unit where they did circumvent the rules - including falsifying evidences - just to make sure that the bad guys had it!

Must say it’s definitely practical, but ethical? I can’t say.

Anyway, the show started well with a great situation in showing how far Tom would go. But of course, that wasn’t the main story. The main story however was when Tom’s ex-partner, Terrence Washington (Terry Crews) was brutally murdered with him on the scene.

Feeling guilty, depressed and desperate, Tom began his investigation with the help from Paul “Disco” Diskant (Chris Evans). Down the rabbit hole, and the twist became more bewildering and I must say almost too brutal. Ending was great as well - “What happened to just fucking the bad people?”.

Must say I was impressed by this show. I did not expect it to be so reflective and engaging; albeit confusing at time. The fact that I did only manage to watch it recently, and not on the big screen, made me a little bit regretful.
