Street Kings 2: Motor City Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) delivers an intense, electrifying performance in this explosive follow-up to the gritty urban crime thriller Street Kings. Liotta plays Detroit detective Marty Kingston, the leader of an undercover narcotics team, whose members are being systematically murdered one by one. To solve the brutal killings, Kingston joins forces with a cocky, young homicide detective. But neither of them is prepared for the shocking corruption their investigation will uncover--stunning secrets that will set both men on a violent collision course with betrayal and vengeance.

Review: Street Kings 2 is a direct to blu-ray sequel that really breaks the mold and bad reputation of previous direct to video films.  The original Street Kings was a star-studded hit, and while this one has a more b-list cast, it still includes crime drama great Ray Liotta!

The script isn't that fanastic on this one, but the acting quality is great and I was really blown away, considering this is one of those knock-off sequels.  The cops dig into some murders to find out that the corruption goes all the way to the top, a typical crime drama sequence of events ensue.  Its not terribly original, but is still very entertaining.

The special features on this blu-ray include: Deleted Scenes, Murder Scene Deconstructions, Creating a Convincing Cop Story, An Explosive Opening, Motor City Setting and Weapons Check - Personality Profile (Blu-ray Exclusive).

Interest Range: Drama, Action
