Great movie with lots of action only a few scenes that would give you pause if taking your kids the rating is on point, lots of cursing.

If the F word repeated over and over and over bothers you then please don't see this movie. It really doesn't bother me but my wife was pretty sick of it by the end of the movie. The acting and set design were really good...I have always liked Pena...Not for 15 and younger..I would have really liked to have rated it between a So-So & Go...

movie is shot as if you are watching a video of the officers as they go through their day - unique perspective...it's hard to watch at times since it is very realistic - language is explicit. Very intense situations. good movie

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!!!!

What struck me most about this film is how well they gave a picture of what police officers are up against every day- at least in LA. It is akin to being in a war zone. And yet, the every day things like missing kids and fires and animal problems are all part of the picture. This movie was very well acted and it really showed the human side of men in this profession and the kind of life they lead. It becomes even more amazing when one sees how much they are committed to their intimate relationships.
And, like war, they are always out there putting their lives on the line.
If you are sensitive to foul language you are in for a long evening. It may have been over the top but they seemed to be making a point about the character of gang members.
Overall it was an enjoyable watch and if you are pretty thick skinned with violence and language it is worth a view.
