Two cops who patrol south central Los Angeles which is overwhelmed by gangster activity.
The two cops are the best of friends and you are immediately drawn into the tight knit relationship they have as they patrol the streets.
They are very ambitious and have a keen idea on where the next crime scene will be.
Eventually they start sticking their nose in places they shouldn’t be and quickly get on the assassination lists of a Mexican cartel drug leader.
I liked the pace of this movie simply because they transitioned quite easily from funny conversations to real life drama and action.
You are taken along on many patrols that lead to drug busts, shoot outs, and car chases.
In between, you get to see how the cop buddies squeeze in a normal life just like all of us which includes dating, quinceaneras, and funerals.
The movie’s ending allows me to see how fragile a life can be even though you hope that good will always prevail.
