All this sounds exciting and it actually is, for the first hour.

The story is thin, completely unrealistic and a total cliché of 100 other cop movies.

It all sounds very familiar, I know but it does work out interesting and entertaining enough and I was ready to really start liking this movie.

To a point past just boredom, past annoyance, into a nauseated grab for the remote to kill it ASAP.

Definitely the worst movie I have seen in years.

I'm sorry, but this is darn near unwatchable, and anyone who wastes their time on this one will regret it.

I have no idea who Curtis 50 Cents Jackson is, but he is not an actor; he is nearly unwatchable in this flat, dull film.

not high-rated movie, but worth watching .

Especially the story is quite random and predictable.

Overall the storyline is extremely predictable and far from original.

That style is so common now that it actually is more standard than stylish, and wearing woefully thin and ho-hum.

Freelancer is a waste of even a bad time.

Hard to watch whole movie, predictable,boring I wanted to like movie with all the talent.

Otherwise the only worthwhile reason for watching it, is to laugh at the sight of 50 Cent wearing a policeman's hat (actually I'm sure this can be seen in the trailer, so I'd advise you to save your money!

Although I'm not a big fan of movies toplining Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, "Freelancers" qualifies as an above-average, but formulaic crooked cop melodrama.

This movie is an overall quite entertaining and mostly fast paced action thriller that though lacks of depth.

Despite these problems, CROSSFIRE is occasionally thrilling in places and there's a lot of involved material to fill up the running time.

Apart of a slightly stronger and even quite entertaining ending, at least three quarters of the movie go straight to nowhere or are highly predictable.

Not the best movie of course, but worth watching once.
