This movie made me sad. The end of 'Pride' didn't really let me think too much about what Mike's fate was but now I got to see plenty of it. I suppose that logically this is better than him getting shot or something but it really doesn't feel
like it. I'd understand him being brought up on assault charges and getting suspended but that? Poor Mike.
Curtis had virtually no screentime and he still managed to annoy me. It's a good thing that Benjamin Bratt was hot because that character
I want to know where, exactly, Van Buren got the idea that Mike was self-centered. I mean, he had a lot of problems (notably his hair-trigger temper that was actually getting better compared to season one) but I wouldn't say being self-centered was one of them and, even if he's wrong, in what universe does genuinely believing there's a dirty cop based on evidence and trying to find said dirty cop make one self-centered? I don't think I'm going to forgive her for that.
I didn't really care for the Mike/sister romance but it was still sad at the end with him standing outside of her apartment and being shut out.
The scene with Jack was amusing. Those two never did like each other although they were only really antagonistic two or three times in season five. I guess no longer working together made Jack feel free to say what he wanted. And, well, Claire being dead still put him in a bad mood, I guess.
And the scene on that building or wherever with Lennie broke my heart. I can see why Lennie just sort of turned his back on him but those two were great together and partners for years and then Lennie gives Mike a speech about not looking into a potentially dirty cop...for loyalty? Seriously? And the best he would do is promise that he'd go along with Mike if he went by the book
? Did he really need to qualify that? We did see that Lennie felt guilty and upset about what happened a few times in season six but he certainly didn't let Mike see any of it. I hope that after the movie ended they started staying in touch better.
