Copshop Sees Joe Carnahan Perfect His Quentin Tarantino Impression

Joe Carnahan’s Tarantino impression, the same one he’s been tweaking since Narc and Smokin’ Aces, has never been closer to the genuine article as it is in his latest, Copshop. The gnarly throwback crime thriller has all the tenets of the most famous ‘70s-worshipping auteur; a grooving, percussive soundtrack, chatty lead characters, unhurried pacing, and trigger-happy scumbags who populate this pulpy, shoot ‘em up B-movie that will leave genre fans pleased as punch.

Boss Level: Joe Carnahan and Frank Grillo Bring Fun and Mayhem to the Time Loop

The whole "repeat the same day over and over again" has been done before, by a ton of different filmmakers in different genres, all to varying degrees of success. None have been done quite like Boss Level, which was just released on Hulu this month. The film brings an action-heavy approach and a sense of dark humor to its time loop, aiming to feel more like a video game than a movie at times. It's a unique experience, and it took a couple of unique brains to bring it to life.

Laughter, Thrills Few and Far Between in Director Joe Carnahan’s ‘Boss Level’

In theory, director Joe Carnahan’s latest hyper-macho action movie “Boss Level” is a forgettable, but tolerable entry in the never-ending cycle of streaming service dumps that has replaced the straight-to-DVD industry.

There are certain directors who could easily be a character in one of their own movies. Joe Carnahan is one of those filmmakers. He’s got an energy and personality that would feel right at home in his more fast-talking, adrenaline-fueled movies. Of course, Carnahan starred in his first movie, Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane, and appeared in his bombastic popcorn movie The A-Team, as well as his one night-gone-wrong in Los Angeles film, Stretch.
