Oh, yes! That was a good series. Shame this film doesnt match up to it. Bit of a dull thing really that tries to do an American cop buddy movie thing but actually misses the point of being simple and sticking to the plot. Too many little angles and characteristics make this a slow plod when it should have been full of shootahs and nonces and back alley beat-em-ups.

No need for this and it certainly didnt need Ray and Ben to lead it. These should have been hard men that like to tackle badly at football not a young lad and a fat guy.

Everyone can do better than this.
