Positives:

  • While the three male leads have fun with their roles, the star of the show for me was the (unknown to me) Alexis Louder. She delivers a really strong performance here, with a confident stillness in some of her close-ups.


  • There are a number of nice lines in the script, some of which made me laugh out loud, which I wasn't expecting to do.


  • As a 'park your brain at the door' shoot-em-up, the ending is fun, similar in many ways I thought to the claustrophobic violence of "Free Fire".


Negatives:
  • Here's YET another example of a script that is downright insulting to the audience's intelligence. There are some genuine "WTF" moments in this script. I can't go into details without dropping spoilers, but the biggest of these - you'll know it when you see it - is a genuine "HANG ON A MINUTE!!!" moment.


  • The sound mix drowns out a lot of the (already drawly and indistinct) dialogue with the incessant music. It's really difficult to pick up on some of the lines.


  • There's something surprisingly 'retro' about the whole movie, right down to the use of split screen at the end. The titles feel as if they were from a 70's TV show like Kojak. I could imagine this would work well... if the movie had actually been set in the 70's!


Summary Thoughts on "Copshop": There's almost a good little action film buried in here struggling to get out. Alexis Louder makes a very positive impression with the best parts of the film happening when she is verbally sparring with Butler. But a good action movie needs to keep things credible, albeit on the edge of credibility (e.g. John McClane's lift shaft fall in "Die Hard" is very much on the boundary, if a little over it). Thanks to some ludicrous decisions within the script, this one lost all credibility for me and took me right out of the story.

This movie got off to a very good start and then about 45 minutes in the dialogue became stilted, the acting stiff, the plot repetitive, and the scenarios contrived.

To my mind Gerald Bultler sabotaged his own movie by being desperate to engrandize his role without sufficient substance and have the last word.

The female cop played by Alexis Louder did a fine job but you "can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear".

Overall this is 5 outta 10 at best, meaning watch it on TV if you are minded.

Its very rare ,I rate a film these days, as I find ones self , dissapointed in what Hollywood's has to throw up at us. Today it's either just stuffed with CGI , leaving nothing to the imagination , plots with like sizable sinkholes throughout or politics been rammed down your throat. I'm happy to conclude this film has none of that.

These days when you watch a Gerrard Butler film you know exactly what you getting ,action , bit like opening up a can of baked beans.

The film reminded me a bit like Assault on Precinct 13 ,meets Die Hard

The action characters humour and most importantly the plot left me talking to my pal after the film walking away both hugely satisfied ,what we had just both witnessed . Sadly this is something I find myself hardly doing this these days .

What you waiting for, go see for yourself.

Such an exciting thrill ride despite anything that doesn't seem fulfilling I'm very pleased! This movie is everything I'd want in Joe Carnahan film or action story. I love the chaos that builds up, the dark comedy, cinematography shots, and the way everything played out. If anything I don't like the small amount of boring bits but I can void that out cause even those parts were entertaining. I don't know who will appreciate my review but I'd definitely recommend this fun movie.

I've seen many cinematic masterpieces this year, but honestly, Copshop is not only one of the best films I've seen this year, but is in fact one of the best films I've seen this decade. Where do I begin singing the praises of this ethereal sherlockian mystery? Firstly; the characters. The colorful cast of morally grey lads and others that dominate the trailers are what dragged my wet asssss into this film.

Anthony Lamb aka the 'psychopath' is a scene stealer. The simple mannerism of him licking the window is up there with the iconicness of Darth Vader's breathing. Grillo and Butler were incredible. 'The Hired Gun' was a wildcard and a half, definitely the type who would order two mini brownies rather than one large brownie.

This film is an endless odyssey of wows and blimeys. On this carousel of exciting action, thrilling memoirs and Rechavol-esque atmosphere, not one minute is wasted. Watch this if you want a wowow.

Summary: An absolute wow earner of a film.

There's a lot to love in this film and quite a few things to hate. But the short answer is go watch this for a fun time and try and get past the first 15 minutes, the film doesn't get good till Gérard butler shows. And it doesn't get AMAZING until Toby Hiss shows up. Seriously, this dude either generated laughs or built tension with every line. What a villain for this type of film.

Basically, Toby Russ, Gérard butler and Frank Grillo (until they end when they kinda ruin his character) are the best parts of the film by a great deal. Everything else... is ok.

The only huge problem I had with this this film, other than the first 15 minutes dragging was Alex louder's character. I litteraly cringed at every line she said and wanted her to die the most.

Overall, an enjoyable thriller flick. Don't expect too much and you'll have a good time.
