Brian and Mike get lucky a couple of times, making big drug and human-trafficking busts, so a Mexican cartel orders their deaths. We meet Mike’s pregnant wife (whom he married out of high school) and watch Brian’s search for a soul mate. There are internal squabbles within the ranks of the LAPD and lots of squad-car conversation. Can the lads escape the cartel’s murderous reach?
Plot: Two young officers are marked for death after confiscating a small cache of money and firearms from the members of a notorious cartel during a routine traffic stop.

Officers Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Zavala (Michael Peña) are LA beat cops, partnered up a long time. We watch them in action via a number of set pieces, and see that they’re cynical enough to interpret the rules as necessary but still by a long, long stretch good and decent cops that will risk their lives in carrying out their duties at a moment’s notice. Zavala is already blissfully happily married with a baby on the way, Taylor has just met a sweet Irish gal and over the course of the film we see their relationship blossom and grow. These two men are like the closest of brothers. It’s all good to see. One day, their dedication to the job causes them to stumble in over their pay grade into a much larger drug cartel and human trafficking operation than regular beat cops would usually encounter. Homeland Security agents appear, having apparently already been monitoring the situation, and warn our boys that they’ve bloodied the wrong noses, and they’d better lay low.
I HATE a dumb actioner, and this ain’t that. Well, it DOES contain all of the standard tropes and cliches (buddy cops, stumbling in over their heads into some drug cartel hoo-haa; the bad guys all being relentlessly bad 24/7, permanently scowling, growling and barking at one another, etc.), but done ever-so-well; reminiscent to me of how [REC] didn’t contain anything new or fresh whatsoever, but did all of what it did very well indeed and it came across as fresh as a result.
It’s shot mostly cinéma vérité-style, utilising a plotline in which officer Taylor is shooting a documentary piece for a student course he’s taking. However, it switches between between first and third-person narrative a la Modern Family, but when it switches to third-person it retains a very documentary-like feel, so it all feels quite seamless.
It wilts a little just past the halfway mark but picks up enormously for the final third. Also, when it’s violent (which isn’t often), it’s unexpectedly VERY violent.
I’d give it an 8/10 and recommend that it’s worth at least a look. And I’m not a fan of L.A. guns/bloods/crips/gangs/urban/drugs/cops films.
A good duo at the forefront of this thing, but I don’t especially care for the half-assed documentary schematic or, you know… cops.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a _
Raw…Real & Gutsy
This was a real unique journey in drama. A mix of studio camera and innovative character cameras interwoven with the story. Casting brought two very strong actors together and their chemistry was right on target. The plot was simple but the ingredient that put this film over the top was realism and believability. Yes it is very raw and if I got a dollar for every “F-bomb” I could by a home in Malibu for sure. Realism is the main course and this film would not lose it’s true identity. I found what really put this movie in the must see category is that …One minute your laughing and the next you’re crying. There are very few films that can achieve this element with this level of quality. This is, without a doubt, one of the very best films of the year.
Gyllenhaal and Peña’s chemistry make every other buddy cop movies look bogus by comparison
This is by far Gyllenhaal and Peña’s best award-worthy performances. At times I forget I was watching a movie; it felt more like I was seeing live footage from a ride-along cameraman. Wow. This is one of the most realistic films I’ve ever seen and aside from Gyllenhaal and Peña’s perfect performances, mad props and respect to writer, producer and director David Ayer for capturing the very essence or real life policing etc. I did want more story – maybe retaliation, a stronger narrative or better ending, or even a part 2. Aside from that, this is superior filmmaking with absolutely very convincing and perfect performances. It’s a well deserved 9/10 from me.
