DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Crime Thriller - This is a violent, gritty urban crime/action drama in the vein of Training Day. Keanu Reeves fans will enjoy this change of pace role, but those drawn in by hip-hop stars Common and The Game will be disappointed by their very fleeting screen time.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Substitute a gutsier ending, however, and this might have been something to recommend more heartily than with a half-hearted shrug.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Street Kings wastes a moderately intriguing premise by filling it with laughably clichéd dialogue, one-dimensional characters and implausible turns of events.
