Diana and I watched Street Kings. This movie had Keanu Reeves and a whole bunch of other mdium-name actors, Forrest Whitaker was in it as well and he was horrible. This movie was pretty good, but the story was very messed up.
Keanu Reeves is a psycho cop that is given free rein to do what he wants by his captain. He kills a bunch of guys and basically just thinks he can do what he wants. His old partner does not like him. They were both dirty cops when they were together, and his partner is trying to clean up, well, actually he is just snitching on the captain that is bad. Keanu follows his old partner one day as the partner gets brutally killed. The rest of the movie is finding who did the murder. Everyone watching knows that the captain, Forrest Whitaker, is the bad guy. Things get worse and worse for Keanu, he ends up killing his team and some undercover cops, and then the captain by the end of the show. The internal affairs team that is following Keanu lets him go at the end.
If you read the spoilers you know just how messed up this movie is. It needs a lot of help, but it is too late, this movie is already made and out to theatres and out on video. They are done with this one - and it is not very good. I am sure Keanu had a lot of fun shooting all the people he gets to kill in this movie.
I give this movie 2 out of 5 stars.
