Give ’em Hell, Malone * Russell Mulcahy (2009)

I found this 2009 film between the ‘new releases’. I do not think I ever heard of it. I do not have good experiences with the director, but I only noticed that when I already had the film at home. The cover and the information of the box compare this film with “Sin City“. This is not entirely untrue, but only in part. Malone from the title is a tough cop, a very tough one. In the great opening scene he explains why getting shot is not that bad. While giving his monologue pretty detailed shooting accidents are thrown towards the viewer with a gigantic wink. After the opening titles a story unfolds in which Malone stumbles into a case that soon proves to be bigger than he imagined. Of course he runs into even tougher criminals and with a lot of black humour, blood and violence “Give ’em Hell” makes an amusing film.
