Remember 2008’s “Street Kings”, starring Keanu Reeves as a badass street cop out for some justice (or some such)? No? Well, there was a movie called that, and Reeves was in it. Also in the movie? Chris Evans, the future Captain America himself. Anyways, no one probably remembers the movie, it wasn’t very memorable, but apparently it did well enough for Fox to greenlight a sequel called “Street Kings 2: Motor City”. As the name implies, they’ve moved the action to Detroit, and Ray Liotta headlines. Check out the (very short) teaser trailer below and DVD cover to your left.
Street Kings 2: Motor City moves the action to Michigan and explores the world of dirty cops on the violent streets of Detroit. Marty Kingston (Liotta) is an undercover narcotics detective who is shot and barely survives a drug bust gone wrong to save the life of his partner. When his partner is killed by a masked gunman four years later, Marty must team up with the hotheaded homicide detective Dan Sullivan (Hatosy) to investigate a string of brutal cop murders and hunt down the cop killer. The investigation that ensues is shrouded in deception and loaded with plot twists that question the line between the rules of law and justice.
Starring Ray Liotta, Shawn Hatosy , Clifton Powell, Kevin Chapman, Ele Bardha, and directed by Chris Fisher, who last directed the sequel to “Donnie Darko” called “S. Darko”.
Look for “Street Kings 2” on DVD and Blu-ray from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment on April 19, 2011.
