If you are looking for a family friendly movie with great cinematic views and movie score, this one is not for you. However, if you are looking for a poignant human interest story that takes a look into two human being's lives, who just happen to be partners on the LAPD; this is a GREAT movie!
The acting is Superb! Their is also a good amount of humor sprinkled in, which is true to real life as a cop. The filming style is unique and puts you right in the middle of the action. The movie does an outstanding job of showing the intensity and violence of the job. The subject matter is intense. The language is about as foul and vulgar as you will find in a movie. It has an R rating for a reason.
I loved the movie! And I find it interesting that my 21-year-old daughter loved the movie too. It had my full attention throughout. It made me laugh; it made me squirm, and even made me cry! But most of all, it made me proud of the men and women who comprise the "Thin Blue Line!"

I saw this movie last month and I loved it.. I was a Newton cop for many years and they filmed at the station, well the patio and the parking lot are Newton... the rest is a set. They had a special viewing for over a 150 Newton Coppers...even though we're LAPD, Newton is a special place.
They did a great job portraying the camaraderie between the cops, very true to life. All the locations and the houses they went into are legitimate Newton houses. They had the terminology down and for the most part it was really accurate. They gave the gangsters to much credit and the women cops were a little to hard... but other then that it was awesome!!!

I thought the use of foul language was extreme. There were more swear words in each sentence then are in most movies and it detracted from the story. The camera work was terrible.
The storyline was alright. And I shed a few tears somewhere along the way.
Adults only. This is definitely not for children. I saw a mother leaving the movie with her approximately 8 year old daughter, and this movie is full of violence, murder, blood, and language.That's ridiculous.

The humanism portrayed in this movie about cops made me think this could be how real cops act and think. Same ole blah, blah, make cops look honest and act like super heroes. A movie to go see if you're in need of a pick me up.
