|A jet-black comedy about two corrupt cops in New Mexico who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path.
British comedy written and directed by John Michael McDonagh. The story follows frustrated Albuquerque cops Terry (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bob (Michael Peña) as they attempt to take the law into their own hands. When the rogue duo discover a group of shady individuals are gathering in town for a big heist, they decide to keep the information from their under-pressure police chief and work the case for their own benefit. Having to fraternise with the kind of characters they’re more used to locking up, they come across a host of ex-cons and lowlifes more than eager to help them reach their goal. But as the pair delve deeper into the New Mexico underworld, they soon realise they may have bitten off more than they can chew.
Things take a sinister turn, however, when they try to intimidate someone who is more dangerous than they are. Or is he?
