Review: Street Kings

I have been looking forward to this movie for sometime, but it has had some mixed reviews. Some people like it and some people didn’t, I wasn’t sure what to expect, the trailer looked good. It had an interesting list of actors such as Forrest Whitaker, Keanu Reeves, Hugh Laurie, and a few more. Keanu plays the role of a good person playing the role of dark cop in a dirty Los Angeles, he had to deal with a lot internally. Working with the Vice Squad he was the attack dog of the team, he would kill the bad guys before all the ropes they would have to jump, he thought he was doing it for the right reasons but his commander (Whitaker) had his own reasons to climb to the top. With all this it looked like there was a lot to the the story, as the movie picked up pace the story line was getting a bit confusing. At the end it was a very simple story line, but Keanu Reeves did an excellent job, it could have been a lot better, I expected something like Training Day. If you just want some action then this is an entertaining movie, Keanu pulls it off and thats about it.
