I gotta be honest with you guys, I wasn’t sure this wasn’t a parody trailer. Honestly, I’m still not…if I didn’t know better I would fully believe this was a trailer made for a time that Aaron Eckhart was guest hosting on SNL. Right from the opening line “They killed my dog” cue hardcore action music, I was thinking “This can’t be real”.
Here’s the thing, it’s definitely real and I would bet money that it’s going to make me eat my words and end up delivering a hard hitting action flick that makes me tear up. How could it not? A rough edged policeman on a quest for revenge with a outcast pupper as his partner? It’s like a not yet neutered Turner & Hooch. The real test will be if it takes itself seriously…it feels like it does, and if that’s the case the action better hit really hard.
