Once again, he plays a character that starts investigating things that he's never really been assigned too, and no one can stop him sticking his nose in, cos he's so threatening. He looks like a big softie, quite literally. Teamed up with a cop who can't decide whether he's good or bad - and is the first to befriend him in the new precinct - is really predictable.
What is the good thing about this movie? (Apart from DMX obviously) That a lot of the characters are from Cradle 2 The Grave - but without Steven Seagal. You've got DMX (he was better in Cradle 2 The Grave), Anthony Anderson, Tom Arnold, and probably a couple of others.
The whole story is about good cops/bad cops. And which one DMX fits into, is never really explained. (Although he's not a cop) You can never decide whether he's on the good side or the bad side.
The extras are pretty sparse on the DVD. You've got a behind the scenes tour thing with Anthony Anderson, a trailer (whoopee!), and a music video. The music video was quite impressive and surprising! DMX has 'covered' (and when I say covered, I mean sings the chorus, and then raps right the way through it) "Ain't No Sunshine", originally done by Bill Withers, and infamously known in the Notting Hill movie. While it's a good version, it's not really DMX to be covering or sampling such a song, that's so well known in another movie.
The same as at the end of Cradle 2 The Grave, Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson, have this little scene all to themselves, which is apparently ad-libbed. (Whatever). However, it's not as funny as their scene in Cradle 2 The Grave, and gets tedious after a while.
So I've given this movie a pretty good rating, haven't I? So I've now seen two Steven Seagal movies, and I own one of them. D'ya think I can get a break? I own one, that's enough for me!
This movie went into complete yawn-ville from start to finish. Read more
