3.5/5

Rogue City (2020)

There is a protagonist in this French action movie. The Netflix description told me so! What they kind of left out was that like everyone else in the movie, cop and criminal, he’s dirty (sure, the writers tried to base his corruption on good intentions, but still). The result is a shoot-em-up extravaganza where you’re not really rooting for anybody to make it out alive. Kind of freeing in a way to have no dog in the fight, but at the same time limits how emotionally invested you can get. That said, there’s carnage a-plenty, so it’s got that going for it.
