Like a S.W.A.T. team on drugs, the elite city police unit F.R.A.T. has every weapon from Glock. 45s to M11s at their disposal and their own strip club to boot. They rule the streets of Edison City, but the only rules they follow are their own. Pocketing the cash and drugs they seize during busts becomes an issue when F.R.A.T. by Deeds (LL Cool J) develops a conscience and the whole scam starts to unravel... Oscar winners Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey star alongside Justin Timberlake and LL Cool J in this explosive high-octane race to bust dirty cops and ultimately expose the underlying network of corruption on the streets of Edison.
Some class actors are wasted in this film, although their performances do enhance the few scenes they are in; Freeman and Spacey, for example. The plot is plodding at first but things liven up towards the end of the film. I was expecting lots of action, but felt a bit let down. Timberlake and LL Cool J are OK but their lack of experience in film acting shows. Seen a LOT worse, though! In a nutshell, it is about corrupt cops in the elite F.R.A.T. squad who a small time journalist threatens to expose.
