Knowing this film centers itself on a police department trying to regain control of the drug trade in the midst of the Katrina aftermath, it was fitting that it can be called a disaster. From the funny accents that disappear, to the horrible camera work, to the 3D style effects of flashbacks, to the stop-style editing (the film freezes prior to each fade to black cut), to that horrendous ending - all made for another frustrating outing for Kilmer.
Kilmer plays a boy scout drug cop fighting the bad guys on the streets and in the FBI. His partner is 50 Cent (sadly enough his best role to date) who cannot seem to decide if he is good or bad. Michael Biehn plays the FBI agent trying to spice things up (failing miserably) and Sharon Stone (scarily unrecognizable) plays the department shrink who violates probably every rule there can be - including having four different accents in the same film. Our plot meanders from Katrina to several years after as our corrupt characters kill and steal their way through their PD work. One memorable moment is when Kilmer and 50 Cent are going to shoot 20 armed guys in an abandoned school, Val gave the exact same speech from Tombstone in the same accent - deja vu.
There are no special features, bad film quality and sound that is intermittently mixed at best. I was hoping for more as this film made the promo posters, and I really tried to give it a solid shot, but after attempting to overlook the laundry list of issues I then got to that last shot - literally - and was appalled they ended the film that way.
Gave it one more star for the Katrina aftermath footage they included in the credits, heartbreaking as always.
