film synopsis

The third film from cult filmmaker S. Craig Zahler is not for the faint of heart. It follows the questionable choices of long serving, disenchanted (and flat out misogynist and racist) cops (Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson) suspended over their mishandled arrest of a drug dealer that was caught on a camera phone. Under financial pressure, and disgruntled and angry at the world all the time, the pair reconnect with a local crime boss (Udo Kier) in an effort to hijack some thieves post-bank robbery. But while the stakes are high, the pace is often measured, filled with Zahler’s trademark colorful character-driven dialogue. Zahler delves deep into a world in which these men have seen — and done —too much that is violent and morally questionable, but the strength of the film is our ultimate acceptance of the burdens they carry.
