Copshop (Netflix disc):

On the run from a lethal assassin, a wily con artist devises a scheme to hide out inside a small-town police station-but when the hitman turns up at the precinct, an unsuspecting rookie cop finds herself caught in the crosshairs.

This is a B-movie that tries to be a B-movie, but is not overly egregious. See also: “Bounty Killer,” “Guns, Girls, And Gambling,” etc. It does keep you guessing until the end, on who the lesser evils are. Gerard Butler and Frank Grillo shine in this story, especially Butler. It’s a fun 100 minutes, dancing on your toes, while digesting some bad dialogue and plot twists.
