1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER on July 29 2012
Format: DVD
This is a film by writer and director Will Kaufman (`The Prodigy') set in the seedy underworld of New Orleans and stars Johnny Strong (`The Fast and the Furious' and `Black Hawk Down') as Detective Sean Riley. He has a marriage that has gone south after the untimely death of his son through cancer, he is not afraid to break the rules and survives on his wits and prescription drugs. Basically he is a `cop on the edge' and I don't mean the guitarist from U2.

It kicks off as it means to go on with a full on shoot out involving some low life types who are holed up in a clap board house - and like the There Little Pigs, they should have gone for bricks, as all hell breaks loose. His partner gets hit and post shoot out he is paired up with Detective Will Gantz - Kevin Phillips (`Notorious'). Things take a turn for the nasty when a series of brutal torture slayings start to happen. Add to the mix Sean's old army buddy, Colin (Sean Patrick Flannery of `The Boondock Saints' - cult classic) who lets them know this is more than they can handle. As a full scale gang war kicks off things then really start to heat up. We also have Internal Affairs looking into some questionable tactics that Riley may have used in the past.

Where this really scores though is the action, it is done realistically and has a bullet count that `The A Team' would have been proud of, but these bullets actually do hit their targets. The acting is all top rate if a tad sensational at points, the clichés are all believable and the special effects really work. For movie anoraks also spot the bar they use is called The Boondock saint as an homage to Sean Patrick Flannery and that film, which is a must see by the way.

Completely Surprised. One of the best indies I have seen this year! Nov. 3 2011
By Hal Wallis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Maybe because I had never heard anything about this film I had very low expectations. I read a bunch of positive online reviews which seemed odd because I have never seen one advertisement. I wasn't familiar with lead Johnny Strong and the rest of the cast is a motley crew of character actors, outside of maybe Tom Berenger and Sean Patrick Flanery. I was pleasantly shocked that I found myself hooked from the opening battle-royal right through the end.

I have never heard of this guy before but this director blew me away. Like Michael Mann on a shoe-string budget he has talent that shines beyond his limited means. He pulled no punches, no cgi and all the gun battles, explosions and fights were refreshingly very realistic. This had the feel of a throw back action film.

The story is simple and not too special. Two cops team up to solve a series of killings in New Orleans. Turns out one of the cops childhood friends is involved in a military coverup and things begin to tumble out of control. Solid film but not for the faint of heart. Some intense violence. Strong performances across the board with great turns from home grown favorites Costas and Louis Mandylor as a baddies. Cool Method Man, classy Jurgen Prochnow, Jolene Blalock (not seen enough ;)Kevin Phillips, the great Kim Coates and Bas Rutten make this grand buffet of watchable and interesting characters seldom seen in typical low budget fare. Johnny Strong channels a young Clint Eastwood and helps move this into cult dvd classic range. Definitely worth checking out if you like this genre!

A gun guys dream Dec 21 2011
By Mkatt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
So, I heard about it and heard about it, watched the youtube trailer repeatedly and often, and I finally got around to locating a film festival and going to see this bad boy (not an easy feat). I was literally blown away by shades of Mann, though comparison wise I think Kaufman goes easier on the dialogue making it a bit more gritty.

This also isn't the first Kaufman entry I've witnessed, his film, 'The Prodigy' was on Netflix and one insomnia stricken night I felt the need for some low budget schlock. Well, low budget yes, schlock not so much. This is a guy who understands gunplay, as soldier I appreciate it when someone in Hollyweird gets it right. No one flying through the wall from a shotgun blast, no magical 9x19 parabellum that propels folks into outerspace like a rocketship from hell. Really, I don't want to gush too much about just the realistic treatment the weapons and tactics get in the film, yet it really stands out from your average Popcorn action nightmare. I won't spoil too much but the gunfight that occurs about midway through the film between Strong and Phillip's characters and the contractors is brutal, violent, and intentionally unstylized.

The story is simple, the bad guys obviously bad. A PMC (private military company), two cops, soom footage that the contractors are desperate to keep under wraps, with characters far beyond the scope of your typical low dollar film. Johnny Strong was a real treat and I bought him and his portrayal of the character in question and I appreciated his taste in sidearms. Literally the character is a gunfighter set in the modern world when he belongs in the old west with a sixgun and a badge. Kim Coates dies too soon but chews up the little bit of screentime he gets, Costas Mandylor plays the villian with grim aplomb, Tom Berrenger is the seasoned father figure, Kevin Phillips portrays the likable young partner but he does it without suffering from some genre cliches that irk me. Matter of fact the usual "I hate you, you are mine enemy" young new partner assigned to work with a grizzled older partner crapola doesn't even happen and it's refreshing to see.

Hopefully Kaufman keeps up the good work and makes some more films of this caliber. Johnny Strong? Well, I wouldn't yell if the duder was in a few more flicks, he hit all the right notes, pathos, aggression, a man literally born into the wrong era that just goes out and gets the job done. Can't wait to see the package from Amazon that I know will contain this film.

A Surprisingly Effective Old-School Actioner That Deserves To Find A DVD Audience Dec 23 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Never having heard of "Sinners and Saints," I can honestly say that my expectations were appropriately grounded. Perhaps that's why the film came as such a pleasant surprise. It's certainly not the best, most professional, or most original movie that you'll see this year--but it works and that's the most important thing. It aims to be exciting and entertaining, and it succeeds at those modest goals without being insultingly idiotic! That's where so many straight-to-DVD endeavors go wrong, they oftentimes miss the point of having a coherent and reasonable screenplay. "Sinners and Saints" is an old school police actioner that has a satisfyingly high body count, a twisty narrative, and likable protagonists. It has plenty of shoot-outs, some gleefully unpleasant torture scenes, and plenty of fisticuffs tied together by an interesting story set in the dilapidated venues of post-Katrina New Orleans.

When a series of grisly murders attract the attention of the NOPD brass, a hot-headed but street smart cop (Johnny Strong) is assigned to help the homicide detectives. The deaths appear to be linked to a powerful criminal enterprise, and Strong may have unexpected ties to the murders. His childhood friend (Sean Patrick Flanery) seems to be neck deep in the trouble. The cops spend most of the film trying to track down Flanery to discover just what is motivating this killing spree. Along the way, they become a target themselves and many scenes just end with a ridiculous amount of gunfire. The actual motives really don't matter that much, they just serve as a catalyst to initiate the violence and mayhem. And the action sequences are orchestrated with precision with a good mix of excitement, danger, and over-the-top fun.

The movie certainly has its flaws and moments that strain credulity, but I liked it well enough to just go with the flow. Perhaps the biggest plot oversight involves the power player behind the criminal enterprise played by Jurgen Prochnow. The film ends with his story dangling in the wind, unresolved, and never to be mentioned again. I did love the endless supply of machine gun toting henchman that were available throughout the picture, the fact that the ending confrontation didn't arouse the interest of police or any passing cars, and the fact that a major character just showed up randomly at the same confrontation. But despite the expected silliness, the film still kept me involved. I give most of that credit to its lead actor, Johnny Strong. I'm not familiar with Strong, but if this is any indication--I expect I might be seeing him again. Credible as both an action star and in moments that required more character complexity, this guy should have a career. "Sinners and Saints," at the end of the day, may not necessarily be a great movie but it is an effective and enjoyable one. It has relatively modest ambitions, and it succeeds at being the movie that it wants to be. KGHarris, 12/11.

Gunfighting & Gun Play at its Best!! Dec 17 2011
By T.A.L. Dozer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Sinners & Saints is a sleeper of a movie, and already has a cult following in the gun world. This is one of best gunfighting movies in longtime, it will definitely find itself on the short list with movies like; The Way of the Gun, Heat, The Departed, Ronin, Training Day, and The Town. The movie is a revenge cop/cop with attitude movie with Detective Sean Riley being down-and-out on his luck and is catapulted into extraordinary situations, with nothing to lose. As already stated by another reviewer, but on the money, and I too hate to compare the two movies, but this is like the movie Lethal Weapon on steroids. This movie moves at a pretty good pace, telling a familiar story that has been told numerous times in this genre, but that does not detract from this movie that carries this storyline very well. The movie has quite few known supporting actors and cameos, to include the gun guru and Systema expert Sonny Puzikas. Not only was Sonny a "bad guy" in the movie, he also choreographed the gunfights and trained the actors in gun handling. This movie will be well worth your time and will certainly entertain you.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product
WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! Unexpectedly gripping and suspenseful and action packed. This is a "buddy cop" film in its style but it is NOT A RETREAD it tells a story that holds you spell bound from beginning to end. So Much Action!!! Now, if you are a child or a sensitive person this film may not be for you as there is graphic violence. Everyone should buy this film, pop it in the player and get your pop-corn ready for an amazing night with detectives in the Big Easy!
