John Michael McDonagh, the award winning writer/director of The Guard and Calvary, heads stateside for this unapologetically offensive buddy movie comedy thriller, starring True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård and End of Watch’s Michael Peña, as a pair of crooked cops the likes of which you’ve never seen before.
Skarsgård and Peña really shine as the corrupt cops who get out of their depth, and share some wonderfully surreal, part-improvised moments, aided and abetted by a superb support casts that boasts Paul Reiser, Westworld sensation Tessa Thompson, and Caleb Landry Jones, a stand-out as strip club manager Birdwell.
Suffused with McDonagh’s trademark jet black humour, littered here with a generous helping of near-the-knuckle, take-no-prisoners gags, and featuring an off kilter, anything goes plotline, this is two parts Tarantino, one part Jim Thompson, with a hefty measure of Shane Black, all shaken up into a fine and frenzied film cocktail.
