Movie Review by Tim
September 21st, 2008

Neo no more.

Favorite Movie Quote: "It means you got eyes like apostrophes, you dress white, talk black, and drive Jew. So how am I supposed to know what kind of zipperhead dog-munching dink you are if you don't?"

Street Kings really fooled me. I thought that Mark Wahlberg was on the cover is the only reason I picked it up...turns out it was a scraggly Keanu Reeves. I don't like Reeves in anything...Matrix was a great film series but it was not because of him. So when I got home and realized that Wahlberg in fact was NOT in this flick I was already disappointed.

Forest Whitaker was good in the film but coming not too long after one of the best performances ever given by an actor being his character in The Last King Of Scotland..this almost was just a joke for him.

Besides some interesting and sometimes funny dialogue the film is at best average with your typical plot turns and average action sequences. If they would have cast Reeves role different with a more believable actor the film could have had more potential and probably would not be destine to find itself in the bottom of the Walmart $5.00 DVD bin...which I'm sure it will be there soon.

Cop films have been done every which way and it takes a lot to impress me with that type of plot.
