Christopher Webster [Celluloid 06.02.16] horror action thriller crime comic

Back in February, producer Mark Neveldine (half of Crank's Neveldine/Taylor directing duo) stated that his upcoming comic book adaption of Officer Downe is “better than any Marvel movie or DC movie ever made.” While some people may think that's a bold claim, I would argue those studios are releasing some pretty generic, watered down cinema, so it's entirely possible he's just calling it how he sees it.

For my money, Officer Downe is already a winner when it casts Sons of Anarchy actor Kim Coates in the lead and holds a super R rating. This first clip from the flick certainly gives us a great taste of the madness to come.

Based on the graphic novel, a police officer who can't be stopped by death returns to the streets time and time again to fight crime.

While Neveldine is producing (and likely co-directing), the main director of Officer Downe is Slipknot percussionist Shawn Crahan and the film is written by comic book writer and Officer Downe creator, Joe Casey.

Recommended Release: Officer Downe

The timing.... I can only imagine what some might say. The ones who will only see and judge by the title. Unfortunately that'll be many... With what has occurred in the last month....
