Sinners and Saints.
An incredibly unlucky New Orleans PD detective and war veteran investigates a series of brutal crimes. His partner (dead), child (dead), and wife's (gone) fates might put some people off, but soon he has a new partner (black) and in the next five minutes is meeting his family. It's a blokey action film, and it's very good at those bits, but the token attention it pays to dialogue, characters, and everything else other than people shooting, stabbing and punching each other is minimal. It actually has some great effects and little dabs of realism here and there, but when our hero tops handfuls of SMG/AR-wielding bad guys with only a pistol, and then opines that they were professionals, I must sigh deeply into my cups. The backdrop of a post-Katrina New Orleans is totally wasted, and with tiny parts for the best actors (Tom Berenger, Kim Coates) who are stuffed into terrible roles anyway, it makes suffering the likes of Method Man and Bas Rutten all the more painful.
I'll look forward to the next film from the same group, Daylight's End, but only because I'm a sucker for zombies.
