Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) delivers an intense, electrifying performance in this explosive follow-up to the gritty urban crime thriller Street Kings. Liotta plays Detroit detective Marty Kingston, the leader of an undercover narcotics team, whose members are being systematically murdered one by one. To solve the brutal killings, Kingston joins forces with a cocky, young homicide detective. But neither of them is prepared for the shocking corruption their investigation will uncover — stunning secrets that will set both men on a violent collision course with betrayal and vengeance.
Shot on location in Detroit is why this film is first in the new “Local Metro Detroit” category here on Five Dollar Shake!
Renowned director Chris Fisher brings the story to life in a way that is sure to have audiences raving. STREET KINGS 2: MOTOR CITY also stars Shawn Hatosy (“Southland”), Clifton Powell (“Army Wives,” Preacher’s Kid, Street Kings), and Zuliekha Robinson (“Lost,” The Namesake).
This is a story about betrayal and vengeance. It’s also one of many “good cop vs bad cop” stories. Both of which can make for a great film. Although, I don’t think I would go as far as to call this one great, I am willing to call it good. As long as you can take it for what it is. A straight to DVD & Blu-ray movie. The movie starts out with a bang and stays pretty action packed throughout. With action and suspense, the director along with a couple of great actors were able to keep my interest. More so before the killer’s identity is revealed. Putting this off until the end would have made for a much better movie in my opinion. Ray Liotta gives his usual top notch performance. With Shawn Hatosy surprisingly stealing a few scenes and making them his own. All in all my husband and I both enjoyed this film and found it well worth our time. Definitely not one you can watch with kids around. Rated R for violence, language, some sexual content/nudity and drug use.
STREET KINGS 2: MOTOR CITY is available now on a 1-disc DVD, 2-disc Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD) or Street Kings Blu-ray 2 pack (Street Kings BD + Street Kings 2 BD).
