So-so action thriller that purports to be based on the original television show but is more along the lines of recent Levi’s jeans advertisements. and perpetual numbskull are the three hipsters who team up to solve crime on the street. Okay, well actually they’re just getting back at one of Danes’ meany boyfriends and his drug cartel. Glimpses of wild parties and colourful raves try to perk this one up, but nothing can change the fact that you’ve seen it all before, and you’ve seen it done way better to boot.
