“Street Kings is an interesting product of a cop film. It isnu0026#39;t a wall to wall mindless action film but yet it remains fairly violent and gritty. It isnu0026#39;t really a cop partner flick but it features buddy elements.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe best way to define Street Kings is a cop revenge flick with some twists throw in for good measure. Predictable? For the most part. The action scenes are enjoyable. The film has a certain mean mentality that benefits the subjects the film discusses such as political corruption and racism. Keanu plays the role with distance and anger that from time to time works. The supporting cast holds the film together and makes it all come together nicely. The problem is the film may have a bit too many characters to juggle. The film has a rough time developing the characters and the given situations.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAgain, this might be asking a bit much from a film called u0026quot;Street Kingsu0026quot; but for a gritty 2 hour cop flick starring Keanu Reeves it could have gone much worse. Worth a viewing for its acting and action.”
