Street Kings, Keanu ReevesKeanu Reeves stars as Tom Ludlow, a veteran LAPD cop who finds life difficult to navigate after the death of his wife. When evidence implicates him in the execution of a fellow officer, he is forced to go up against the cop culture he's been a part of his entire career, ultimately leading him to question the loyalties of everyone around him. He lives in the shadows of the streets and while he works alone, he serves under the protection of the brotherhood of Ad Vice and its leader, the enigmatic Captain Jack Wander played by Academy Award Winner Forest Whitaker. All of the cops in Ludlow's unit, including their captain, Jack Wander, bend and break the rules of conduct on a regular basis. Their intention is often to deal with crime in a manner that they perceive to be more efficient, which leads them to routinely lie, falsify reports and manipulate evidence to cover up for their wrong-doings. Ludlow represents the men who stand guard in the night; he sees all the things we don’t want to see and guards us from the evils in the dark. With STREET KINGS, Director David Ayer, one of LA’s native sons, wields his camera onto the streets that are not found on picture postcards but on a city of contradictions and often-tragic consequences.
