Brett Ridgeman (Mel Gibson) is a veteran within the police force. His partner is the younger Anthony Lurasetti (Vince Vaughn). Both officers love their job, but when the media gets its hands on a video that shows their forceful tactics, the pair are suspended from the force.
With no pay coming in, the pair are running low on cash. Brett has had to move into a poorer area, where his daughter is assaulted, which only puts more pressure on him and his wife, who is also dealing with MS. The two policemen need to find a means to support themselves and their families. That’s when they decide to look at what the other side of the law can offer them…Yet, as they spiral downwards into the criminal underworld, things begin to get much more complicated than the pair could ever have imagined.
Mel Gibson (Daddy’s Home Two), Vince Vaughn (Brawl in Cell Block 99) and Tory Kittles (Man Down) star in this gritty crime thriller directed by S. Craig Zahler, the brains behind Brawl in Cell Block 99 and Bone Tomahawk.
