"Bad Country" movie quotes follow a criminal and a police detective who team up to take down a powerful crime ring. The action crime drama, also known as "Whiskey Bay," was written by Jonathan Hirschbein using a story by Tom Abernathy. Chris Brinker directed the film, just prior to his death, which opened in the United States on April 29, 2014.

In "Bad Country," Baton Touge police detective Bud Carter (Willem Dafoe) arrests contract killer Jesse Weiland (Matt Dillon). But instead of sending him to prison for what is likely to be a guaranteed 200-plus-year sentence, Bud sees an opportunity to use Jesse as a police informant to infiltrate and take down a huge crime ring. Though Bud has his doubters, mainly in fellow law enforcement and legal allies (played by Bill Duke, Chris Marquette, Don Yesso and others), they all agree to go ahead with the plan.

It doesn't take long for the crime ring, led by Lutin (Tom Berenger) to catch wind that Bud and company are after them and that Jesse is working to help them. For their own safety, and the safety of Jesse's lady (Amy Smart) and their newborn child, Bud and Jesse are forced to team up to take down the crime ring once and for all.

"Bad Country" is just one of several stellar movies in theaters in the spring of 2014 alongside "Locke," "Brick Mansions," "The Other Woman," "Transcendence," "A Haunted House 2," "Heaven is for Real," "Draft Day," "Under the Skin," "Dom Hemingway," "Joe," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Sabotage," "Noah," "Blood Ties," the "Veronica Mars" movie, "Need for Speed."

Jesse Weiland: "Cause the truth is you all need me. Y'all ain't got enough cops with enough sense or enough time to clear them crimes that already been committed and as you well know the ones that will be. I'm the one with the devil's address here."
Fitch: "Okay, great, thanks. Thank you, Mr. Weiland, for that and thank you everyone for being here."
Detective: "And why are we here? And why are we focused on white power prison gangs? Beyond prosecution, I don't see how ATS gots any long-term interests in this."
Nokes: "Hold the phone, gentlemen. A sophisticated criminal network was born of a racist ideology in the prison system. Let's be clear. They do no discriminate. Their ruthless violence extends to everyone."
Jesse Weiland: "Yeah, I'm afraid he's right. There's no one off limits."
