Street Kings was absolutlly brilliant!!
Keanu Reeves is at the top of his game playing a semi-corrupt cop in a squad of corrupt cops who operate in the L.A.P.D. Reeves old partner is murdered in a gangland style assassination while Reeves is present. One thing leads to another and Reeves it out chasing the guys who did it. However, it is not that simple, something bigger is at work so Reeves and Chris Evans team up to find out the who and the what. All the actors do a great job, the story moves along very well, the action is very well done, real, and gritty. The Supporting cast of Forrest Whitaker, Hugh Lourie (spelled that wrong I think), Cedric the Entertainer, Jay Moore, Common and others are excellent.
It is a shame that the only advertising I have seen for this is on the internet....but since it is #2 at the box-office, I guess that worked out just fine. Anyway, great movie.....really great movie.
Recommended to-- Fans of Shows like The Shield and movies like Dark Blue, Harsh Times, Training day, fans of Keanu Reeves, Forrest Whitaker, Chris Evans, and this genre in general Not Recommended to-- Jackasses, fans of crappy movies, Blind People, Al Sharpton....and people who don't like cop movies.
