Cop Out

Starring Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Jason Lee, and Seann William Scott

Directed by Kevin Smith

Release Date: February 26th, 2010

Wow, I'm completely shocked at how dull and boring this movie was. For months I'd heard how atrocious this movie was, just how low Kevin Smith had sunk in his career with his movie. Unfortunately, all I saw was a really dull "action comedy". For one, the comedy in this movie, especially the interactions between the main stars, are boring. Bruce Willis is mainly sleepwalking through his role and Tracy Morgan is stuck on autopilot "wacky loud guy" mode; on top of that, they're just not fun to follow on this so-called adventure. Other than that, the jokes are just dull, not funny, not inspired just ho-hum. Second of all, the action part of the movie, is so formulaic so uninspired it will put the most hard-core action movie junkies to sleep. I really wanted to feel something from this movie-joy, excitement, even frustration-but all I got out of it was a decent nap.

The movie's a balanced disappointment: I can't recommend it as Cop Out isn't a fairly good movie and I can't recommend it as a guily pleasure/good 'bad' movie as there's nothing to laugh at. All it really is is a wasted afternoon for you and a paycheck for the cast and crew.

Rating: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz...oh sorry, * * of 5
