HBO Max’s crime thriller written and directed by John Lee Hancock. The story centers on burned-out Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon (Denzel Washington), who becomes embroiled in the search for a killer who is terrorizing the city of Los Angeles. Leading the hunt, LA Sheriff Department Sergeant Jim Baxter (Rami Malek), impressed with Deke’s cop instincts, unofficially engages his help. But as they track the killer, Baxter is unaware that the investigation is dredging up echoes of Deke’s past, uncovering disturbing secrets that could threaten more than his case.

We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now here’s a small selection.




Joe “Deke” Deacon: You knew him, didn’t you? Then you had that one little feeling. But you waved it away. You should’ve listened to that one little feeling. Just like I’m listening to you now. You can talk to me. I’m all the friend you got.


Jim Baxter: [to Deke] You’re not exactly a department favorite.


Jim Baxter: Things probably changed a lot since you left.
Joe “Deke” Deacon: You still got too catch him, right?
Sergeant Jim Baxter: Yeah.
Joe “Deke” Deacon: Well, not that much has changed then, huh?


Jim Baxter: I can assure you all, we are taking a twenty-four-seven, all-hands-on-deck approach to these cases.


Joe “Deke” Deacon: Guy’s a shark. If he stops, he dies. He likes to drive, probably has a decent car. Maybe two. High mileage.


Albert Sparma: You must really like my car.
Joe “Deke” Deacon: I do. How’s the trunk space?


Jim Baxter: Something I got to know. How’s a guy with the best clearance rate in the department work fifteen years without a promotion?
Joe “Deke” Deacon: Maybe I didn’t go to the right church.


Flo Dunigan: [to Deke] When I look in your eyes, what I see, it ain’t good.


Detective: [referring to Albert] He knew all the details, but he wasn’t within ten miles of the killing.


Albert Sparma: [pulls up his car next to Deke’s] How’s the trunk space?


Joe “Deke” Deacon: What do you want?
Jim Baxter: I want to nail the bastard.
Joe “Deke” Deacon: For who?
Jim Baxter: For all of the girls he killed.
Joe “Deke” Deacon: Well, I want to nail him too. The difference is, I’m doing it for me.


Joe “Deke” Deacon: It’s the little things, Jimmy. It’s the little things that rip you apart. It’s the little things that get you caught.
