Police Officer Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) beat the shit out of his Captain, Boylan (Michael Gaston), and then spent 5 years in prison.
The day he was to be released, some inmates tried to kill him. Although we was stabbed with a shiv…he survived.
The night Spenser was released…..Captain Boylan was brutally murdered.
Guess who the main suspect is ? You got it….Spenser.
Spenser’s friend, or dad, who knows, Henry (Alan Arkin), has a nice room set up for Spenser which he shares with a giant, Hawk (Winston Duke).
After Boylan’s murder, Spenser and Hawk set out to find out who killed him even though Spenser knows he was a dirty cop, then…..another cop is murdered, this one a clean cop.
Spenser is pissed and redoubles his efforts to find the killers.
What he finds is shocking to the core!
To see what happens, you will have to stream the movie.
“Spenser Confidential” is a fun, action packed, crime thriller with a really good cast. Iliza Schlesinger as Spenser’s ex, Cissy Davis, lights up the movie. And Winston Duke is familiarly ominous (oh, yeah…Black Panther!). And we always love Wahlberg and Arkin…..
By the way….the old among us remember fondly the TV show “Spenser for Hire”.
We streamed this movie on Netflix.
