Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Film review — Copshop

This should be a vehicle for Alexis Louder as the badass desert cop who more than holds her own between Frank Grillo and Gerard Butler’s macho posturing. I say ‘should’, because she wasn’t pushed in the marketing material for its original cinema release, at least not round these parts. What it was sold as was as a Tarantino-damaged shoot-’em-up and it is that, because it’s a Joe Carnahan movie, but it’s also trying to be a quirky, twisty mystery in the vein of Knives Out. And a siege-y, heist-y thriller in the style of… you get it. Is it as entertaining as it is derivative? Sure. Is it worth remembering after the credits roll? I’m not so sure about that one. ★★★
