Movie review: (mystery/crime) “The Badge” (2002)

December 11, 2010 at 10:20 pm (crime, movies, mystery)

 This was a pretty decent mainstream flick. I watched it because I love the Billy Bob. And this is a great vehicle for him, it’s all Billy Bob all the time.

The story is well-worn. Small-town Southern sheriff rises above his own prejudice to …solve well-covered-up crime. The new spin is that the victim is a transexual. Watching the homophobic sheriff wrestle with his deeply ingrained bias was pretty interesting.

Patricia Arquette is wonderful, as usual, as the victim’s sweet, outraged wife. 

A must for Billy-Bob fans!

-Rated R
-3 out of 5 stars
-Possibly OK for older teens
