A Fairy Tale
Verified purchase
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.

Always the same type of endings
Verified purchase
It's always the same ending. The black man gets killed. Many (not all) white people don't understand how and what it is like being black. This is just a personal belief. Not meant to cause any misunderstandings, but sometimes a fact.

Not up to Val's talents
Verified purchase
The film starts out with an overview and reminder of how devastating Katrina was. The characters are not well fleshed out, with the exception of Andy and even then it doesn't dig real deep into who he is. It is extremely violent and without the F bomb the dialog would be pretty sparce. It did paint a nightmarish picture of the control that the gangs had on the city, and the means that the cops had to employ to try and keep it under as much control as they could. With the kind of violence that the gangs were involved in the film could have made a strong statement against disarming the citizens when they needed self protection the most. There was so much mishandling of the events after Katrina that contributed to the violence and desperation of the citizens. Some of the violence seems gratuitous but typical Hollywood. I think Val Kilmer did the best he could with what he had but it was definately not up to his talent. Andy is kind of a tragic character trying to live up to the image of his dad and avenge his death with every collar, at what seems to be at the expense of a life. Sharon Stone was so-so and the rest were okey.
If you are a Kilmer fan, get it. If you are into extreme violence and language you'll like it.

New Orleans - home sweet home
Verified purchase
Used to be. This piece of cinematic garbage belongs in Los Angeles.

unwatchable due to the camera "persons" inability to hold the camera steady - I wonder why...

Great Cast, decent movie. Lots of violence, if you like it that way. Any any of you were expecting more then watch something else or go pay to see a movie.
