This movie OBVIOUSLY did not do proper research. Six months after, Katrina, Rita one week later, and the levies breaking within 2 weeks, the only place a "Police Station" could be in a building, would have been Baton Rouge, which is 1 hour and 20 minutes away going I-10. The lower 9th ward did not have power or water for over 2 years after the levies broke. The Police Headquarters was a trailer for nearly 3 years. If it had not been for the National Guard working and running police calls, (at about a 6 to 1 ratio), and private federal contractors, none of the city would even be close to safe. Black Water took control and restored order in the Super Dome. The French Quarter, (where all the money business is, bars, strip clubs, fine dining,and so on), was patrolled 24/7 by Special Forces. This, along with new recruits for N.O.P.D., is what helped clean up the force. The city was under 30 feet of sea water. After pumping it out, they darted a 4400 lb. crocodile, and returned it to its natural habitat. The waters were shark infested as well. and they opened all jail cells and told them to "swim for your life". All Police records were destroyed. There was nowhere to report to for "probation or parol, and no record of who should report. There were big evacuations to Texas, and Police officers had to evacuate their families and themselves. Many never returned. Which means gangs evacuated and new gangs moved in and took over old territories. 2 years later, old gang members came back and war started. BUT THE ABSOLUTE, UNDENIABLE TRUTH was, NO ONE IN THE ENTIRE CITY TALKED TO POLICE. They did not talk to F.B.I.. That was a death sentence by their own people. The C.I.A. was as you would expect, seeing that the gulf coast is an international border, and 09-11-2001 was fresh in everyone's mind. Over all, it is a gritty action film, and can hold your interest. Just much of the "authentic spirit of New Orleans" is missing.
