This was a good week for unlikable protagonists bossing people around in movies, as evident in the new films Steve Jobs and Burnt. I was also going to include Our Brand Is Crisis into this review, but then I watched the trailer for it again and realized that I really, really don’t want to pay to see that movie because it looks painfully bland. So I didn’t.
Premise: Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena are a couple of LAPD beat cops who work the rougher areas of town. They love their jobs. But as they start to screw up the plans of a Mexican drug cartel, they become targets of a brutal wave of violence… …in the last 10 minutes of the movie.
