Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) is an ex cop who has just been released from jail, convicted for assaulting a senior officer who was corrupt. He returns to live with his old boxing mentor, Henry (Alan Arkin), and promising amateur boxer, Hawk (Winston Duke). When two former police officer associates are murdered, these three make a pact to bring down the corrupt forces responsible, who are aligned against them - police, gangs and politicians.
The action scenes, and fight scenes are extremely well choreographed and the finale, where our three heros prevail, against almost insurmountable odds, is extremely satisfying. I love a movie with a good ending! Great movie for action and cop movie fans. Wahlberg brings this home in style. Recommmended - 7/10.
