The second of the big hitting double acts. And I preferred this one to Righteous Kill. Corrupt police officers is a well used theme, If they'd just pay them a bit more perhaps things wouldn't get out of hand. So the tale may not be unique, but it is handled well. I was gripped from the start, Norton and Farrell can command that of a viewer. Dark, violent and gritty, you will care, not care and care again. Reminded me visually of Narc and it is just as nasty in places. Fireman have 'taches, coppers are bent. NY is so cliched.
