The recently renamed Street Kings finally has a trailer and I'm quite fond of the concept they use in it, setting it to some harsh music. Street Kings is directed by the same guy who brought us Harsh Times a few years ago, a movie that I personally hated. I hope it's not as bad as that movie, but maybe Keanu Reeves and a different script will help. The energy is high and the excitement is bursting from this trailer, but that doesn't mean it will be a big hit nor will it be a good movie, and I fear for the worst. Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think.
Watch the trailer for Street Kings:
Tom Ludlow (Keanu Reeves) is a veteran LAPD cop who finds life difficult to navigate after the death of his wife. When evidence implicates him in the execution of a fellow officer, he is forced to go up against the cop culture he's been a part of his entire career, ultimately leading him to question the loyalties of everyone around him.
Street Kings is directed by David Ayer, who directed 2006's Harsh Times and wrote The Fast and the Furious, Training Day, and S.W.A.T. The script was written by James Ellroy, Kurt Wimmer and Jamie Moss. Street Kings arrives in limited theater starting on April 11th.

User comment: By: BillyLooks good to me...Forest Whitaker as a cop? Yes please. Take me back to the good days of the Shield
User comment: By: SpiderAwesome for Keanu Reeves to come back to the action genre, a la "Speed". The trailer looks solid enough. Let's hope David Ayer impresses. "Harsh Times" was ok--to say the least, because of Christian Bale's performance.
User comment: By: sixthSeems like a nice action-pumped movie....prolly a nice soundtrack too..finally reeves in an action role, and maybe a half decent one...

The three movies you listed are solid, with Training Day being terrific, so I this being 'okay' at worst. It will most likely be on the same level as SWAT, a 2 1/2 star movie.
