good back-story, and good acting
Excellent but underrated film
It's easily one of the freshest, sharpest and most enjoyable films of this year.
Straight forward action. Great acting espesially Proctor and his right hand guy. Awesome pace and not like 99% of shows these days with Way to much crying and hurt feelings all over the place. Just good old fashion kill'm all. This show even manage to get a wide variation of People in to the show without going all Disney. Great work from the team behind this. Thank you.
This is such low brow garbage, I can't believe I made it through two seasons.Boobs and Violence. Rinse and Repeat. That's the show in a nutshell.I rented it based off the rave reviews, but quickly questioned how anyone could like this show. It appeals to the lowest common denominator who like boobs and violence in place of a coherent story.At first I tried to find entertainment in how laughably absurd the whole premise was, and started to think the high ratings were because it was a parody of over the top, completely unrealistic movies and television shows, and it was being enjoyed because of that.After two seasons of recycling the same story though, the luster of just how bad this show was wore off, and it somehow got progressively worse. Besides the aimless plot that seems to repeat itself each season, everything in the show is about as unrealistic as it gets.Despite how awful the writing is, the acting is even worse. All the women are supermodels in the show, and all the guys are martial arts experts. Everyone's an alcoholic in the show, always drinking and making bad decisions that go along with that, but none seem to be sporting beer bellies or showing the obvious signs of alcoholism.The main character "Lucas Hood," is a half leprechaun midget with a serious Napoleon complex that gets into all sorts of extremely unrealistic situations. The worse character and worst actor/actress is the actress that plays "Carrie." All she does is mope around whining about her chaotic self created situation. She is definitely the most depressing character in a show since "Eeyore" from "Winnie the Pooh."I was surprised to see Cinemax is even still around. After watching this show I'm even more shocked.If you liked Transformers, but crave more boobs and violence this is your show!
Wow here's an idea - a bad guy turned cop. let me guess he plays by his own rules but gets the job done? his way or the highway? blah blah throw in some profanity and lame nudity (warning hot missionary sex ahead!)...bet you can't predict the tough criminal is good guy underneath it all? sorry for drowning you in sarcasm but come on. oh also is his past catching up on him. it ticks all the boxes
One of the best and worst TV series I've ever seen. Some story-lines are disappointing, like that of the big Indian whose life is a dramatic waste. My favorite characters are the recovering Amish Kai Proctor, the ex-Nazi cop, the big fat villain in the semi-trailer truck, and the tough women who kick serious butt. Overall, the bad guys are more interesting than the good guys. At times the story telling is good; some scenes are chilling, hair-raising, and have great emotional depth. Others are stupid. So this river runs shallow and it runs deep. The main guy, our hero? Numb and dumb, I'd say.
