Streets of Blood (2009)

(R) 95 mins

Synopsis:Val Kilmer and rapper 50 Cent star as a pair of newly minted police partners risking their own lives to determine whether a fellow officer was murdered in this gritty crime drama set in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The official report says the officer died during the chaos of the storm — one of the most violent natural disasters the nation’s ever seen — but the evidence doesn’t seem to add up. Sharon Stone co-stars.

Director: Charles Winkler

Serious Jest:  (Don’t Bother)  I did like the personification of post-Katrina New Orleans in this movie, but that’s about it. Surprisingly, 50 Cent was not the liability in this movie. Poor plot, story, etc. I actually fell asleep multiple times.
