Action crime thriller written and directed by S. Craig Zahler. The story centers on two policemen, one an old-timer, Brett Ridgeman (Mel Gibson), the other his volatile younger partner, Anthony Lurasetti (Vince Vaughn), who find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics become the media’s cause du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due, but instead find far more than they wanted waiting in the shadows.

Brett Ridgeman: A single red ant could have eaten that faster.
Lt. Calvert: You’re losing perspective and compassion. There’s a reason I’m sitting behind this desk running things. And you’re out there with a partner that’s twenty years younger than you.
Brett Ridgeman: Anthony’s got a mouth with his own engine, but he’s solid.
Brett Ridgeman: There’s a lot of imbeciles out there.
Anthony Lurasetti: I’m thinking about the kind of future I can offer my girlfriend.
Henry Johns: Pops is a yesterday who ain’t worth words.
Mr. Edmington: Good heavens and praise be to him. Your absence was a weight upon us.
Kelly Summer: Thank you, Mr. Edmington.
Biscuit: I don’t like doing things with so many question marks everywhere.
Henry Johns: It’s all cotton candy.
Brett Ridgeman: Start the party.
Anthony Lurasetti: This is a bad idea.
