WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Detective Terry Monroe (Skarsgård) and Detective Bob Bolaño (Peña) are two corrupt New Mexico cops who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal that is unfortunate to cross their paths. However, things take a sinister turn when they try and intimidate a criminal who might be more dangerous than they are (the key word being “might”)…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

John Michael McDonagh, the filmmaker behind The Guard and our favourite film of 2014 Calvary, is back with a darkly hilarious tale of corruption and violence, and that’s just describing the police in this film!
