Spenser is an ex-cop who is finally getting out of prison. Now that’s what a paradox is, I tell you. Although, according to the trailer, he was framed by a corrupt group of then-fellow officers. When he’s back with the fresh breeze of air, he teams up with the most unlikely–but the most that makes sense–group of people. His former mentor (played by Alan Arkin), a great boxer (played by Winston Duke), and his ex-girlfriend (played by Iliza Shlesinger) are the people that form his pretty weird team.

However, the film clearly has enough action and comedic chemistry to appeal to discerning action-craving Netflix subscribers.
Winston Duke (the Marvel Universe ‘s M’Baku) plays MMA fighter Hawk, Alan Arkin ( The Kominsky Method ) is Spenser’s old boxing coach and mentor Henry Cimoli, and comedian Iliza Shlesinger plays Cissy, Spenser’s foul-mouthed ex-girlfriend.
