"This is not a found footage film. This is an expertly directed police procedural,buddy buddy film. It's pretty hardcore as well, no doubt taken from real life situations attended to by the LAPD. The score is Oscar material. The two leads are exceptional but never truly convincing as cops. Give me a dvd of Pacino, Eastwood or Hackman any day of the week. Nonetheless this film is still very good. 8/10"
