Keanu Reeves is Tom Ludlow, a LAPD Vice Detective with some very shady work habits. Thinking his ex-partner and friend has gone to internal affairs over him, he seeks out a little rough justice on him, but before Ludlow gets to face up to his ex-friend, the friend is gunned down in an apparent robbery gone wrong.
But nothing is as clear-cut as it seems as Ludlow starts a wild goose chase to find out who killed his former partner. The rules go way out the window as Ludlow seeks justice any way he can, even if it means putting his life and career on the line.
Pounding with action as well as a bass heavy sound track, Street Kings is a in-your-face thrill ride with Keanu Reeves at his best, shooting first and asking questions later. This is a guilty pleasure for the action fan, with plenty of plot twists to keep you happy. Character development gives way to pace and body count in this well laid out action thriller.
