Frank Grillo is very proud of his new movie "Copshop" and the performance he gave, but is not a fan of the film's finished theatrical cut and the critics who panned it.

Grillo said on his Instagram that the version of "Copshop" cut his performance that he says was more "three dimensional," "colorful" and "planned out," but that's not the performance audiences will end up watching. The drama opens in theaters today.

"Needless to say that's not what ended up in the film. As a result I'm getting a bit beat up by critics. That makes me f—ing mad. But there's not a thing i can do except smile and wave," Grillo wrote.

Fall movie calendar, from 'Venom' to 'King Richard'

  Fall movie calendar, from 'Venom' to 'King Richard' A rundown of notable films coming out this fall: Sept. 9 “Blood Brothers: Malcolm X & Muhammad Ali” (Netflix): A documentary chronicling the friendship between the boxing legend and the civil rights leader. Sept. 10 “The Card Counter” (In theaters): Oscar Isaac plays a professional gambler and a former serviceman who encounters a young man (Tye Sheridan) bent on revenge in Paul Schrader's latest. “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” (In theaters and on Amazon Prime): In this adaptation of a West End musical, Max Harwood stars as a teenager from Sheffield who dreams of becoming a drag queen. “Fauci” (In theaters): A documentary portrait of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Grillo stars in "Copshop" with Gerard Butler as directed by Joe Carnahan. The film tells the story of a con artist who hides out in a police station to evade an assassin, only for the assassin to show up at the precinct and get an unsuspecting rookie cop caught in the crosshairs.

The film actually has a largely positive 81% score on Rotten Tomatoes and a more modest 59 from Metacritic. But while Grillo was unhappy with the reviews, he praised Carnahan's directing and said that in a previous version of the film, he left his performance intact.

'Shang-Chi' Adds $21 Million as Box Office Slows Down

  'Shang-Chi' Adds $21 Million as Box Office Slows Down Marvel Studios' "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" is continuing to have a strong run at the box office with $21.7 million, bringing its total to $176.9 million and putting it on course to pass "Black Widow" as the highest grossing 2021 film in North America this coming week. Critical and audience acclaim, combined with its status as a theatrically exclusive film, has turned "Shang-Chi" into a film that has not only been the biggest boost to theaters in months but has also convinced Disney to commit to theatrical exclusivity for the remainder of the year.

"Unfortunately our cut was passed over for this cut. That's fine. It happens," Grillo said. "'Copshop' is a good movie and I'm very proud of what we did. But the day i take the brunt for someone else's bulls— will be the day I quit acting. I love what i do and put my soul into every role. So when i read critics go at me for a character that was castrated by someone other then my director I take great offense."

Grillo also signed off his note with a hashtag, "#youdontlikewhatIsaidf–off."

Grillo earlier in the week announced on Adam Corolla's podcast that he'd next be playing the inventor behind Lamborghini in a biopic, replacing Antonio Banderas in the role, and that he's in Rome now filming for the part.

‘Gamer’ Star Gerard Butler Reacts To ‘Free Guy’ Comparisons: ‘I Don’t Watch Ryan Reynolds Movies’ .
Gerard Butler hasn’t seen “Free Guy” or much of Ryan Reynolds’ catalogue, for that matter. Butler portrayed an inmate controlled by human players in an online video game for 2009’s “Gamer”. The 25-year acting veteran hoped the movie’s commentary on a digital world would resonate with audiences, but perhaps it came too soon.
