Is ignorance bliss? If only I had known how foul-mouthed this movie was, I would have stayed home. Question for you: How do you count a movie's total cuss words, misuse of the Lord's name, the f-bomb, and whatever else you can stuff into a mediocre plot of a movie? Simple, listen to the first minute and then multiply by the total minutes in the film. But let me warn you, for this movie you'll need a calculator. Are real cops this pervasively foul? Oh, add a plot about Bruce Willis' daughter's wedding, a missing baseball card, the typical broken marriage scenario, a really mean drug dealer and you have a movie that isn't worth seeing. Come on Hollywood! Stop with the typical stagnant plots and marital failures as background fodder for a shoot-em-up, cuss-fest.
Sure, there are some good performances by the actors. Both Willis and Morgan are talented. But don't waste your money supporting a Hollywood endeavor that is as foul as last week's garbage.
I have a suggestion for the movie makers--something that is really out there and different. Why not make a cop movie about a man who is tough but struggles with being sensitive to his wife (to whom he has been faithful and who happens to love him), has a mortgage, and who struggles to succeed at a dangerous and difficult job? The plot could center around a challenge to his integrity (remember that stuff?) and the safety of his family for whom he risks life and limb to protect--which he does without resorting to expletives and spent shell casings every two minutes. Too syrupy you say? Maybe, but we pay money to be entertained, not verbally accosted; and it's nice to see real men who are imperfect but do the right thing--without being subjected to foul mouthed gutter talk for an hour and a half. Oh, if you throw in a kid, could you make the offspring into something other than the typical rebellious, bad dressing, sarcastic, pre-human who learns a lesson only after the parents go through hell?
Hollywood just doesn't get it, and this movie shows it. But hey, I've really digressed. Save your money.
