Would you expect any less from Woody? Total garbage. I'll be taking the family to see Sherlock Holmes this week instead of supporting that propaganda.

Woody's dad was a professional hitman. Unfortunately Woody didn't fall very far from the tree. Why people support anti-American garbage like Woody escapes me.

I think it looks like it's gonna be great, aside from Ice Cube. I'll take T over Cube any day when selecting black hardasses for a movie that started off rapping and have the first name Ice.

I like Woody. He's been in his share of bad movies, but they weren't bad because of him, he's always good.

Side note, boy Robin Wright is lookin kinda rough.

Its just a movie. Any intelligent person can watch that and not lump all cops into the outta control alcoholic train wreck he portrays in that movie.

He seems too much like the character he played in Con Air,
Garland Green aka The Marietta Mangler.

Was it like seeing a train wreck long before the engineer woke up too late?

In high school.

I'm aware of the Rafael(Ray) Perez fiasco, I was just commenting that most people will watch movies like that and take them for what they are, entertainment. The ones that will watch it and say,"Wow, thats probably what all cops are like" probably already held that sentiment towards them.

You can say that again. I wonder if they "ruff'd her up" just for the movie, or if time and Sean Penn just hasn't been kind to her.

Read the synopsis on IMDB a month ago and thought... here we go again... but it seems to be more of a character study in his person who happens to be a cop rather than focus on the cops who are bad and then using his personal life as a peripheral story backdrop. Minor technical differences, I know.

Save your money, just saw Sherlock. Find something else. One of the dullest movies I've ever seen. Absolutely dreadful.

I'll probably see it when it's released on video. I don't mind Woody. He was funny as fell in Friends With Benefits and pretty good (despite having a small part) in No Country for Old Men. I just don't see Ice Cube as an IA detective.

I couldn't help but notice that Woody doesn't really "look" like Rafael Perez.....

I'll wait to hear what you all think before I even consider renting. Won't pay theater money. Greatly unrealistic police shows (which is the norm) annoy me... this may or may not be one, but based on the trailer I don't expect anything different from the norm.

If cop shows or movies were even halfway realistic, the audience would fall asleep and then riot to get their money back after sitting through 8 hours of driving in circles, grabbing coffee at the Stop N Rob, unsuccessfully flirting with Flo, the waitress, at the greasy spoon, writing one running a stop sign ticket to some middle age guy who doesn't say much back, gassing up the unit, kicking all the sunflower seeds under your seat before you turn in the unit, then *****ing about work in the locker room.
