The Big Easy

New Orleans. Dennis Quaid is a Homicide lieutenant, Ellen Barkin is from the D.A.'s office, cracking down on police corruption. Also starring Ned Beatty and John Goodman, directed by Jim McBride.

It's a cop movie that takes it's time. The first action sequence comes at 70 minutes. This was back in the days when there didn't have to be a car crashing into a helicopter full of zombies right after the title sequence or the audience will fall asleep. The film is rather carried by the chemistry between Quaid and Barkin. Being set in New Orleans, there's also some great cajun music. Maybe not a classic but a fun film.
