Rules to Be Broken,
This review is from: Blitz [DVD] (DVD)
Two police detectives, one straight (Jason Stratham) and one gay (Paddy Considine) team together to catch a serial killer of police officers. (I'm not certain why one is written as gay, since there is nothing to indicate this other than a few homophobic remarks, written or spoken, which have nothing to do with the plot itself. It's all back story. It might have been a more interesting acting stretch, too, if Stratham had played the gay cop and Considine the straight one.) Nonetheless, both actors shine in their roles, as does Aidan Gillen as the sociopathic killer. This movie also features a fine ensemble cast, including such British stalwarts as Mark Rylance and David Morrisey, and newer star Luke Evans. The movie's "message" seems to suggest that for some crimes, rules are made to be broken. To put this another way, it promotes vigilanteism.
