I have never heard of this guy before but this director blew me away. Like Michael Mann on a shoe-string budget he has talent that shines beyond his limited means. He pulled no punches, no cgi and all the gun battles, explosions and fights were refreshingly very realistic. This had the feel of a throw back action film.
The story is simple and not too special. Two cops team up to solve a series of killings in New Orleans. Turns out one of the cops childhood friends is involved in a military coverup and things begin to tumble out of control. Solid film but not for the faint of heart. Some intense violence. Strong performances across the board with great turns from home grown favorites Costas and Louis Mandylor as a baddies. Cool Method Man, classy Jurgen Prochnow, Jolene Blalock (not seen enough ;)Kevin Phillips, the great Kim Coates and Bas Rutten make this grand buffet of watchable and interesting characters seldom seen in typical low budget fare. Johnny Strong channels a young Clint Eastwood and helps move this into cult dvd classic range. Definitely worth checking out if you like this genre!
This also isn't the first Kaufman entry I've witnessed, his film, 'The Prodigy' was on Netflix and one insomnia stricken night I felt the need for some low budget schlock. Well, low budget yes, schlock not so much. This is a guy who understands gunplay, as soldier I appreciate it when someone in Hollyweird gets it right. No one flying through the wall from a shotgun blast, no magical 9x19 parabellum that propels folks into outerspace like a rocketship from hell. Really, I don't want to gush too much about just the realistic treatment the weapons and tactics get in the film, yet it really stands out from your average Popcorn action nightmare. I won't spoil too much but the gunfight that occurs about midway through the film between Strong and Phillip's characters and the contractors is brutal, violent, and intentionally unstylized.
The story is simple, the bad guys obviously bad. A PMC (private military company), two cops, soom footage that the contractors are desperate to keep under wraps, with characters far beyond the scope of your typical low dollar film. Johnny Strong was a real treat and I bought him and his portrayal of the character in question and I appreciated his taste in sidearms. Literally the character is a gunfighter set in the modern world when he belongs in the old west with a sixgun and a badge.Read more ›
When a series of grisly murders attract the attention of the NOPD brass, a hot-headed but street smart cop (Johnny Strong) is assigned to help the homicide detectives. The deaths appear to be linked to a powerful criminal enterprise, and Strong may have unexpected ties to the murders. His childhood friend (Sean Patrick Flanery) seems to be neck deep in the trouble. The cops spend most of the film trying to track down Flanery to discover just what is motivating this killing spree. Along the way, they become a target themselves and many scenes just end with a ridiculous amount of gunfire. The actual motives really don't matter that much, they just serve as a catalyst to initiate the violence and mayhem. And the action sequences are orchestrated with precision with a good mix of excitement, danger, and over-the-top fun.Read more ›
