Jake Gyllenhaal plays L.A. Cop Brian Taylor, who describes himself as `I am fate with a badge and a gun' at the beginning of the film. He is teamed with Mexican Michael Pena (`The Lincoln Lawyer') playing cop, Mike Zavala. They are the sort of cops that are all guns out but not so gung ho as to be corrupt and through their joint effervescence for the job, they get lucky. That is they manage to hit upon a couple of busts for both narcotics and human trafficking. Whilst this brings them to the attention of the powers that be, it also gets them the unwanted attention of the Cartel, crime lords - who respond reasonably enough, by ordering their death.

Brian has met Janet (Anna Kendrick - `50/50') and Mike is married to Gabby (Natalie Martinez `Broken City' just out) and she is pregnant and he can't wait to be a Daddy. Meanwhile dark forces gather on the L.A. streets where every other word has to involve `fornication with your Mum' type talk or the person talking will not be taken seriously. The gangs are either Black or Hispanic and a turf war is being waged almost non stop.

This quite a good film, and it should be it comes from writer and director David Ayer who grew up on these streets and is responsible for `Training Day', `Harsh Times' and `Street Kings' so he knows his trade. The language is gritty, the violence believable and the plot convincing up until it falls into a cliché of sorts near the end, but it is just forgivable, to say what it is would be a plot spoiler. The sound track is quite good too; I spotted Mazzy Star, Black Rebble Motor Cycle Club and Public Enemy in there along with a load more.

So a well made and acted and actually quite engaging film and I was presently surprised by how good it actually was, a plot twist too much could have ruined it, but in the end it all worked rather well - recommended.

Solid acting, plenty of action, and a convincing relationship between the two main characters. One of my favourite cop buddy movies.

Buddy cop movies are very popular, and there have been many crappy ones. This is NOT your average cop flick. I mean it when I say this might just be the best one ever.
