This movie sure loves the colour yellow.

Anyway. Meet Spenser. Spenser is an ex-cop, coming out of five years in prison, having pled guilty to harassing another cop, and assaulting him, and whatever. Some hammy flashbacks tell us really quickly that Spenser is a good person, who assaulted a corrupt cop who beat his wife.

Spenser goes to stay with his friend Harry, who runs a fight club. He meets Hawk, tries to avoid his ex-girlfriend, and is startled when the cop he went to jail for assaulting is brutally slain and the murder pinned on another cop that he knows is a good guy too.

There’s lots of unravelling, and at the end Spenser wins the day.

There’s nothing really outstanding about this movie. Spenser is who has a heart of gold. Is he nice? Is he likeable? I don’t know. It’s kind of hard to pin a movie on a character you might not like and might not dislike either. I guess it’s like Marmite, huh?
