Based on the graphic novel, this movie is about Officer Downe who is a superhero. A superhero who cleans up the streets with his own designated crew. He is the ultimate cop who aims to beat up all the bad guys and put them where they belong. He is violent, a little crazy, raunchy and unabashedly gory. No doubt that he is dedicated to his job, risking his life repeatedly and securing the entire city from evil, but what stands out about Officer Downe is that he is resurrected from the death just to continue to deal with the bad guys. There is no doubt about the movie being predictable, it definitely is. But the role of the “raunchy”, the weirdly sexy officer is the way he does what he does. His style is unapologetic, and he gives no hoots about the risks of his job because he knows he has an image to carry and a support system that would not let him down – partly his crew and partly his weapons. Again, his raunchiness shows in the way he names his weapons and his entire process of preparation.
