Cop Out Reviews
I am a huge fan of Bruce Willis, but he's kind of God-Awful in this film and Tracy Morgan's character in this film comes across as a blubbering sixth grader who happened to stumble into a career as a police officer. The plot is possibly the biggest casualty out of all of this, as I was watching it I kept saying to myself...this police officer is risking his ENTIRE career so he can get back a baseball card?! Like what?! Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever and on top of that you have the character "Poh Boy" who is supposed to be this drug kingpin and mastermind, yet everyone on the planet seems to know exactly where he lives.
To me, the best part of this movie was Sean William Scott whose over the top character was the only one that actually seemed to make sense in this film. Even then, they found a way to completely mess his character up, if you've seen it then you'll know what I mean.
All in all, I didn't really enjoy this movie, if it came on my tv during the day, I highly doubt I would sit there and put myself through it again.
I had NO expectations coming into this movie as critics and viewers alike ripped it apart. From a critical perspective, it's only slightly above average. However, from the INTENT of the film, it was perfect. The movie was fun, enjoyable and made me happy to see the genre revisited. Thanks Kevin!
