Should you check this movie out? Why the hell not?

"The Rookie" may not be heavy on plot or even very original, but it's a blast! Lots of cool action, lots of cool stunts and a consistently energetic pace that never takes a beat. Clint Eastwood and Charlie Sheen make a great team. Eastwood spouts great one-liners by the second ("If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster"). One of the keys to a good action movie is a good sense of humor, which this movie does not lack. There's a hilarious scene where Sheen points a gun at two attack dogs who were chasing after him. Eastwood comments, "Good job. Now read them their rights." Raul Julia (who will be missed terribly) and Sonia Braga make a great team of villains. Basically, "The Rookie" is good, solid action entertainment. As long as you're not looking to watch "Henry V," you should be very impressed! To quote Eastwood's character, "Why the hell not?"

Will likely disappoint action and/or Eastwood fans

I honestly expected "The Rookie" to be one of my favorite films, it had everything that I like about an action film. Buddy Cops, Clint Eastwood, Charlie Sheen, action, bad cop, good cop...how can it fail...but it does, it falls flat on his face and there isn't even anything redeemable about it which is amazing to me!!

The Rookie is about veteran tough guy cop Nick Pulovski. He has been on the case of big time car thief Strom with his partner and now they've finally caught up to him. Unfortunately Strom gets the drop on them and shoots Pulovski's partner dead. Now Pulovski is hell bent on destroying Strom but when he tries to pitch his plan to the Lieutenant, he takes him off the case and gives him a rookie new partner, David Ackerman. Uptight, perfectly controlled, by the book, the complete opposite of Nick. Nick drags him around as they follow Strom and try to catch his trail, against orders. When they think they finally have them during a Casino robbery Ackerman hesitates during their capture and gets shot in the back (fortunately in the vest) and Nick is kidnapped. Strom demands two million dollars from the city in order for Nick not to be killed and the city doesn't want to comply for fear of negotiating with kidnappers. David has had enough and he breaks. Everything Nick has shown him about being the tough cop who walks the line between good and bad comes to surface and he turns over every bar, destroys everything in his path to find out where Pulovski is. He even gets the two million dollars from his wealthy father in order to pay the ransom. When he finally finds Nick the two of them will stop at nothing to chase down Strom and end it once and for all.

The special effects in this film are utterly and horribly deplorable. Every time a gun goes off (which is a lot) it looks like mini firecrackers. Even the car chase scenes which could have been cool are not even remotely. The worst part Clint Eastwood who has always been a great action star is horrible!! But it's probably more the script that ruins it. Charlie Sheen who I always though should have been a bigger movie star than what he turned out to be...shows me why I am wrong in this empty and vapid performance as Ackerman. Eastwood and Sheen have some chemistry for the buddy cop routine but barely enough for a pulse. Everything that happens in the film makes no sense at all and is confusing crap!! I can't get over how disappointing it is when the idea has such great promise. The worst part is these two so called cops are just as bad if not worse than the bad guys but in the end they are back in their uniforms, one of them with a huge promotion despite the fact that they caused innocent deaths and ran around blowing everything up. I would say for campy fans to check this one out but it's not even worth it. Even Raul Julia might as well have played Gomez Adams as the bad guy it was that campy. Maybe it can all be blamed on the writers. At almost two hours it's such a huge waste of time and I can't believe Eastwood directed let alone starred in this enormous disappointment. 4/10
