Brooklyn's Finest (2010) reviewSynopsis: Three unconnected Brooklyn cops wind up at the same deadly location after enduring vastly different career paths.
This here is a film which bears striking similarities to Training Day, a film also directed by Antoine Fuqua.
With three seperate-ish plot lines almost intertwining in the end, it was a subtler version of 2004's Crash (
The 'stories' of each Police officer were each as intriguing as the last, but by the end of them all, I couldn't help but feel a sense of emptiness. Sure, they had some exciting moments in each of them(Maybe with the exception of Richard Gere's story, it seemed to lack some of the energy the others did), but ultimately just seemed fall flat at each conclusion of the respective plot lines.
Despite a few hitches during the story, it was an impressive film, and had all the positive elements that made Training Day the film that it was.
Ethan Hawke, Don Cheadle and Richard Gere were most definitely the highlights of this film, and made it worthwhile.
Good film, despite some minor flaws, Brooklyn's Finest was a respectable 'action thriller'.
