Recipe for Brooklyn's Finest
1 Washed Out Cop
1 Cop That Doesn't Believe In Contraceptives
1 Cop that's been undercover too long
1 Lady That Gives Women Everywhere A Bad Name
1 Character Recently Released From Prison Played By An Actor Recently Released From Prison
3 Easily preventable deaths
Mix this all together and what do you get? A cop with too many kids attempting to steal dirty money while on the job so he can buy his family a new house. A cop that's had the lines blurred by being undercover so long he goes on a crazy revenge rampage when criminal friends gets killed. A cop that's been on the job so long he no longer gives a rat's ass about anyone until the very end when he finally saves some hookers, that he could have saved earlier on in the film but didn't because he can't care about anyone or anything. Your typical cop drama, not for me at all. However, the performances given by Don Cheadle, Wesley Snipes, Ellen Barkin, Ethan Hawke, Richard Gere were well done and the movie was well made. So for someone who likes cop dramas you'd probably enjoy this. Lines were well delivered and the plot didn't have holes all in all a success.
Rated: 7/10 for me, but this is kind of bias since this isn't a typical movie I would enjoy.
