People here clearly don't feel John Michael McDonagh's brutal style and faul humor. It's not merely cynical, nor is it (just) "politically incorrect". It's rather quite nihilistic towards power and corruption, but with an over-all anti-authoritarian / anarchist moral compass - and I mean this in the best way possible. Making a movie about two cops that screams "ACAB" from start to finish - it's Bad Boys' antithesis.
Both John and his brother Martin (his new film will hit theaters in a few months!) are of the most provocative screenwriters working in the US today, combining sheer entertainment with wit and a "fuck all"-attitude (the title of the movie describes its sentiment perfectly). It's uncompromising and because of that it will have some difficulties reaching the audience it was ment for.
Although I understand the unfavorable comments in this section, I couldn't let three of them exist here without at least writing one positive one. ;-)
Came for Theo James. Stayed for Theo James. Was underwhelmed by Theo James. Wanted to leave 2443 times.
Some of the worst acting and line execution I have ever seen so props to you for that?
Pretty much just two vigilante-like cops, with the occasional educated line to show that they may actually know things and yet all they do is strut around, beat on people and throw f-bombs ever chance they can, which apparently is 9/10 out of every page of the script.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
