THE PLOT THUS FAR
The son of a slain NYPD officer joins the force, where he falls in with his father’s former partner and a team of rogue cops.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Freelancers” is proof positive that 50 Cent needs to make more movies. He’s not a good actor, but he’s the kind of genre presence that we’ve been missing for years. Sean Combs thought he was it for a few years, but then he wised up to the beliefs of the rest of the world. 50 Cent is the African American Burt Reynolds before he took a chair to the head in “City Heat”. 50 Cent is all that is thug man.
The movie doesn’t really need that much of an explanation. 50 Cent plays a young thug that gets implicated in a crime he didn’t commit. After getting paroled, 50 Cent joins the police academy and graduates. From there, he rolls out like a fat kid that loves cake. Robert DeNiro shows up to remind people that he’s old and he is so far away from ever doing anything of importance with Scorsese ever again.
The Blu-Ray comes with commentary, deleted scenes and interviews. The 1080p transfer and DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track is perfect as hell. While it’s not reference quality, they both fall a smidge under that standard. But, it’s not like you’re watching this for the dynamic LFE all up in this bitch. In the end, I’d recommend a rental for the curious.
