Powerful drama set against the backdrop of the 1992 Rodney King-police brutality trial, in which a corrupt LAPD cop (Kurt Russell) and his rookie partner (Scott Speedman) investigate a quadruple homicide unaware their greedy supervisor (Brendan Gleeson) was behind the crime. In stark, even shrill fashion, director Ron Shelton explores levels of generational police corruption, intimidation, brutality and casual racism, but the gripping narrative eventually moves toward a morally redemptive conclusion. Some intense violence, constant rough language and racial epithets, an implied sexual encounter and fleeting nudity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
