And y’all, it look like Chris Rock and company has NAILED IT. Saw this when I hit Fantasy Island today (okay enough for fans of Blum and/or the original show; mini review forthcoming) and I bounced in my seat. It’s looking like a very good entry/rehab of the series, which let’s face it has been circling the “been-there” drain of late. Synopsis!
Working in the shadow of an esteemed police veteran (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly trapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game.
