Unremittingly ugly police drama set in Los Angeles about a former gang member-turned-cop (Clifton Collins Jr.) torn between conscience and loyalty to his out-of-control partner (Cuba Gooding Jr.) in deciding to come clean about their unit's illegal activities, while reluctantly agreeing to one last score for his crooked bosses on the force (Keith David and Cole Hauser). Written and directed by Chris Fisher, this gritty "Training Day" clone offers little illumination into corruption and violence, despite pretensions of social commentary, resulting less in a modern morality tale than an unpleasant stock urban action film. Much strong and bloody violence, including several graphic shootings and a tense game of Russian roulette resulting in death, some sexual situations, including suggestive groping of a teenage girl and brief, shadowy strip club partial nudity, recurring drug content, pervasive rough and sexually crude language, as well as some profanity and racial epithets. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
