We Own This City (HBO) Rated TV-MA

This miniseries tells of the rise and fall of the Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force and the corruption around it. Starring Jon Bernthal, Wunmi Mosaku, and Jamie Hector.

I was not impressed with this film. The acting is over-the-top at times, and at other times it’s rather flat. I thought, for the most part, that it was too much. Also, the writing is too political and over-explains the situation. You get a glimpse of the police corruption, but there’s not enough character development to decide if we care about the character or hate them. Then, you have the story that bounces through time without reason and doesn’t help the audience understand what’s happening. It gives off more of the bad-cop feel than encouraging the fact that there are more good cops around. This show is not worth the watch.
