Officer grabs at second chance after being shot,
This review is from: Officer Down (DVD)
By Jim Clark, publisher, Lee County Courier, Tupelo, Mississippi
Detective David Callahan (Stephen Dorff) knows crime from the inside out.
He used to be the best customer at the local strip club, addicted to booze, drugs and the ladies.
The problem he was a cop.
So one night he stops another car, not to arrest them but to steal their stash of narcotics. Instead he's shot. A stranger comes to his aid and calls 911. The stranger is gone before he can thank him, but David is now a changed man.
A doctor and security guard dream at night. They dream what the other person did during the day. They meet when the security guard murders his wife, is then hit by a car and brought into the doctor's emergency room. The case fasinates David. He's been waiting for a chance to solve a tough case, and get back in the game.
Meanwhile, the stranger comes forward. David wants to repay him somehow for giving him his life back. The stranger is seeking revenge against some unknown men who have assaulted his daughter and other young women at the same strip club David used to frequent.
This is cool cop movie with a really great cast including Dominic Purcell (Prison Break), Stephen Lang (Terra Nova), AnnaLynne McCord (Gun), James Woods (Northfork), David Boreanaz (Bones), Walton Goggins (Justified), and Souljaboy (Juice).
You probably didn't know, Dorff attended several private schools, and was expelled from five of them.
