Cop movie clichés have been sent up before, but this Icelandic action comedy takes the homoerotic subtext of so many buddy movies and unapologetically comes “out” all guns blazing. Rival law enforcers, rough-edged Bussi and slick hunky, ex-model Hördur reluctantly join forces to stop criminal mastermind Rikki Ferrari. Desperate as they are to stop Ferrari’s bank heists, they may just, despite Bússi’s initial denial, want each other even more. Cop Secret embraces the genre’s more ludicrous tropes and gleefully squeezes them tighter. While a hard-hitting action flick, at its core is a tender romance. If Michael Bay made a gay Lethal Weapon…this would be what it looks like.
