There are several radio call errors. Conversations with neighborhood sector cars usually use the precinct number followed by a alphabetical name, so Eddie's car might be "6-5 Adam" or "6-5 Boy". The response to the dispatcher would be to "Central", not "Central 1". Also, the reference to a "10-10 in progress" is incorrect. A 10-10 in the NYPD radio code is to a possible crime and should carry with it the nature of the crime. And it can't be in progress if it may not be a crime at all. See more »

Richard Gere rehashes his police character role albeit in less than flattering circumstances. This time he's a cop without illusions.

Don Cheadle another officer is deeply embedded in the drug world. He's being asked to do more than he's prepared to do and eventually he loses his sense of identity. There are only gray lines in this film; everything is marred by malfeasance, violence and scandal.
Ethan Hawke is a man on a path to destruction. His wife is sickly and about to give birth to twins. The house is too small and he can't provide for his family's needs on a cop salary. He takes on more dangerous drug busts and eventually is consumed by his own corruption.
The film is high quality, albeit unrealistic. It glorifies the handgun and over-emphasizes several themes, but it does a good job at captivating viewers' attention
