“What can I say about Line of Duty? I always like to begin with something positive, but this is the first film Iu0026#39;ve ever reviewed where I could find nothing good to say.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis film ran and looked like what my kid brother and I used to shoot for fun when we were kids.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSeriously, this film just never comes together. There were some decent actors; for example Walter Perez gave it all he could to try to find depth in an otherwise two-dimensional, clichéd drug lord character, Jason. The problem was he was fishing in shallow water. And, whoever heard of a drug lord named Jason?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy question is, how did this film even get made? Werenu0026#39;t there checks and balances along the way that screamed, u0026quot;CAUTION, CAUTION, STAY AWAYu0026quot;? The script is the main problem, the directing and acting follows close behind, but I blame the people who paid for this film to even be produced. Did they know ANYTHING at all about film making before they jumped into the business? I guess there will always be foolish people with more money than sense who want to be in the movie-making business.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI think the best I can say about this film is that with a $2.5 million budget and only about a $77,707 take, it restores my faith in the movie-going public.”
