[3.00/10] Cop Out (2010)


Cop Out (2010)

Short review: "Cop Out" is about a cop and his long time partner attempt to recover his stolen property before his daughter's wedding. This buddy cop film marks a new low for Bruce Willis, who seems to have agreed to star in this movie just and only for money. Don't expect much from former competent director and writer, Kevin Smith, whose comedic inspiration must have abandoned him while he directed this tiring movie. The script has all of the originality of a photocopy. It uses every worn out plot line that you have seen hundreds of times before. Bruce Willis is clearly going through the motions, and Tracy Morgan is totally out of his element, playing someone with a responsible job and a stable relationship, since he's a cartoon character. The supporting cast of Sean William Scott and Jason Lee were their usually amusing selves, while the Latino gang villains, led by Guillermo Díaz of The Shield and Weeds fame, are absurdly over the top and clichéd, almost to the point of offensiveness. "Cop Out" is not only tediously overlong, but also an extremely offensive, painfully unfunny, unnecessarily violent lift from a breed of 80's movies that are better left to cable reruns.

  • My Rating: 3.00/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 19% (3.8/10)
  • IMDb: 5.9/10
