(2021) (Chris Rock, Max Minghella) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror: A detective tries to find and stop a killer who's murdering bad cops in grisly, torture-filled ways.
Despite being the son of beloved but now retired Police Chief Marcus Banks (SAMUEL L. JACKSON), Det. Zeke Banks (CHRIS ROCK) is viewed with disdain by most of his fellow cops including the likes of Det. Fitch (RICHARD ZEPPIERI) and Det. Kraus (EDIE INKSETTER). And that's because he turned in a bad cop in the past and only has the support of Capt. Angie Garza (MARISOL NICHOLAS).
When one of their own ends up murdered via grisly and macabre means, Zeke convinces Angie that he should lead the investigation. She reluctantly agrees, but only if he takes on rookie Detective William Schenk (MAX MINGHELLA) as his new partner. He's not crazy about the idea, but puts that behind him when it becomes clear that the killer wants him to be aware of the similarly torturous killing of other bad cops. Still affected by the past actions that have left him with a rocky relationship with his father, Zeke tries to find and stop the killer before more murders occur.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're fans of the "Saw" movie franchise or anyone in the cast they might be interested.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For sequences of grisly bloody violence and torture, pervasive language, some sexual references, and brief drug use.
