Freeze! Put your hands in the air! [gunshots](female news anchor)
This marks the fifth deadly incident
in less than a month between police
and people with power.
[hip-hop music] [distant police sirens] Good. [hip-hop music continues] It’s hot as hell out here, man. I almost hope nobody shows up. That’d be refreshing. Oh… delicious. [laughter] [horn honking] Here we go! [Freddie sighs] (Reed)
Lot of guys today, man. (Freddie)
Don’t worry about it. I’ll get us in.(man)
Hey, Joe! Joe, over here, man.

Class 2? Yeah. Prove it.(Big Joe)
Hey-hey! Hey!
Come on, man!Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. (Big Joe)
Okay. You’re in. What about you? Certified electrician. You special or not? You need an electrician or not? You’re lucky my guy called in sick. Okay. You and you, let’s go! (Reed)
Man, what are you talking about? (Freddie)
Buddy, I’m so broke, I’ll lift rocks, I’ll pick up a car, I’ll carry your grandma. I don’t care. Whatever, it’s too hot out, man. You don’t want to work.(Freddie)
I said almost.
Almost don’t want to work.
[drone approaching] [productive music] Hey! It’s short. No it ain’t. We agreed to a hundred. That’s a full day. You guys only worked six. [laughs] You serious, man? That’s the rate. You don’t like it,
I’ll find some others that do. You’re lucky I picked you up
in the first place. You need to pay us
what you owe us. Or what? I think we should just forget
about this guy, yeah? Let’s just get out of here. This is bullshit. Fucking special. Okay. Oh shit! Call it even! You wait, cocksucker! I’ma catch you! The fuck!(female dispatch)

Possible Code 8.(drone pilot)
Solid copy.
109 on the way.
You couldn’t have waited
until we were dropped off to smash that window? Yeah, yeah. Sorry, man. I’m so sick of this shit every day. And for a couple bucks,
it’s barely worth it. I could set you up with my cousin. Always looking for guys,
especially with your skills. Nah, hitting homes ain’t a job. Call it what you want,
but it’s a paycheck. Unlike you, I gotta spend
to keep this face pretty. [laughing]
Yeah, you’re overspending, Freddie. [drone whirring](drone pilot)

Approaching two suspects
at 144 Liberty. [police siren signals] What are these clowns doing
way out here? Going where the job takes them. Same shit we’re doing. Don’t think so. [tense music] Let me see your hands, please. (Dixon)
Put your hands in the air, now! (Park)
Turn around. You have any weapons on you? (Reed)
No. Long way from home,
ain’t it, fellas? What are you talking about? We live right up the street. (Dixon)
Yeah, right. That’s a real fucking funny joke
to you, huh? Hey, watch your mouth! (Park)
Easy. They’re clean. We got a report of a vandalized truck
on Westmount. I’m guessing you two don’t know
anything about that, right? You’re right, we don’t know anything
about that. Just two guys taking a nice stroll
around the neighborhood. [thud] In steel toes. [under his breath]
Steel toes. You got something you wanna say? Yeah, I got plenty I wanna say. Say it. Yeah? Freddie. Look, man, we’re just trying to get home. I understand that. Guy stiffed us, okay? Now it’s settled. You know, it’s a felony
to use your power to settle fights. I didn’t use my power. But you smashed that window. And a smashed window’s nothing
to what we deal with every fucking day. All right, you didn’t use your power. You still broke the law.
I have to take you in. Wait, you’re arresting me? No, that’s bullshit! Get the fuck back! Turn around and put your hands
behind your back. No, no, I’m not going anywhere. Face the other way– (Freddie)
What the fuck are you doing? Get the fuck off him! Get off me! – Wait!

Get down on the ground with
your hands behind your head.
If you do not comply,

You’re all right, just–just… [crying]
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.(drone pilot)

  1. Interestingly I see no comments about how this relates to real life. It's frustrating to see when people with my complexion are shot but when Caucasians act like it's not their problem. The reality is even white people are getting killed by Police too. We need to stop fighting and acting ignorant towards each other because the Elites are laughing as us as they plot our demise.

  2. Look. I'm not someone who likes every single thing he sees. But this is a hellova good movie. Good scenario, good CGI/VFX, good sound design. Dope.

  3. I literally got goosebumps when his eyes and veins turned blue. I actually felt static or a "charge" in a way I've never experienced. Definitely will watch when it comes out.

  4. Please dont resist arrest, you make it worse and at the end POLICE will find and shoot you or you go to jail for a very long time maybe forever, you cant win only lose.

  5. When I first started watching this I couldn't understand why the "specials" where the poor downtrodden rather than the ruling class. After all, powers should be a valuable skill that would be used and exploited by all industries and therefore the majority of powered people should be able to get well paid jobs, even to the detriment of those without. Then I realized that people in this world would have the same fear, and so they could have easily lobbied lawmakers to pass legislation criminalizing the use of powers by claiming the violent criminal members are representative of the whole group.. And once a people are seen as the other by the system, they are quickly taken advantage of and prejudged like we saw in this clip. Think about it, if the two laborers had been normal Mexican immigrants instead of super powered white men then this could have been a documentary. Except for the robots.

  6. So how stupid is the government to not give anyone with powers a draft (with very good payment) or be killed option?
    Keeping them poor and angry is literally asking for trouble.

  7. I am so glad this is a feature film finally and so cool to see the Amell brothers acting together as well as some other cool names.

  8. Gotta love how robocops armed with machine guns are deployed on a scene of a smashed window of a car. And then, they just shoot not to protect the cop, but to revenge him. It feels more like a commentary than as a sci-fi. I love it.
