Nowhere to Hide ★★★★

Completely anarchic to the point where it’s bound to alienate a lot of viewers, but genuinely subversive in spite of (or maybe because of) all its chaos. Lee uses his Tony Scott-style “everything but the kitchen sink” visual approach as a stark contrast to his protagonists’ corruption, cruelty, and catastrophic ineptitude, leaving us with the buddy-cop movie equivalent of Starship Troopers: here, violent idiocy prevails instead of justice, and the joke is that we could barely tell the difference in the first place. Still probably needed a Verhoeven behind the wheel to make it all hold together, but compelling anyways.
