I was skeptical about how and whether I would enjoy a movie shot by handheld cameras. I loved the experience of watching the entire film, except some cheesy dialogue. The camaraderie and friendship shown between the two main characters is very 'scripted', but the cinematography, direction and casting (especially the gangs) pull together to compel a very immersed experience in cinema. I was reminded of the show COPS, from time to time, with a story and a good looking crew of characters.
The Pluses: Cinematography, Direction, Casting
The minuses: Largely Predictable Storyline, Cheesy Screenplay, Art Direction
Warning: If you are prone to nausea from watching shaky film footage, this is one movie you might want to sit out.

This movie was great. I went in thinking it was going to be so-so...once it it started I was pulled in. All the actors in this movie had great performances. I laughed, cried and felt nervous at times. Overall, great movie. This movie is NOT for kids. I was completely shocked to see a mother come in with her son who was maybe 10 years of age. ADULTS ONLY PLEASE!

91 out of 100 Very inspiring cop film. There has never been such fantastic chemistry in a film since the Bad Boys. Lots of hilarious dialogue but also very disturbing and suspenseful and action-packed.

Great, edge-of-your-seat thriller. Not for the faint of heart or those who like to sugar coat real world problems. The acting was phenomenal and the directing on spot. Would recommend to anybody that loves to be entertained. Great way to spend 2 hours of your time and would do so again. 4 stars out of 4.

Great movie, a lot of action packed scenes. Jake played a great part and it's truly a great way to share what our officers go through day in and day out. Ending had a surprise ending and it's a must see movie!!!!
