DeMornay is beautiful. What else is needed?
10 May 2016 | by pzivojinovicSee all my reviews

A great action film, but not as clever as the first film and not as tightly put together as the second. It lost its way a couple of times and I was left feeling that of the first three films, strangely this was seemed the most outdated. Still a good yarn and never boring. "Feds" was refreshing in the sense that it's a "female buddy" cop movie that didn't have to depend on vulgarity or sexuality to be entertaining unlike its modern counterpart "The Heat". Yes, both women have a crush on their respective male equivalents, but the movie didn't dwell on it so it didn't resort to being a rom-com either, which typically happens these days. Overall they just help each other become more competitive against their fellow classmates, there's no trickery involved, no toilet humor, no crudeness, and really no male-bashing either - the brainy Janis helps Marine Ellie become a better test taker and Ellie gives tips to Janis on how to pass the physical requirements. Good clean fun. I would've been satisfied if the jerks failed but oh well, good ending nonetheless.

Overall rating: 7 out of 10.
