" Brooklyn's Finest" truly has the finest of everything: great actors, superb director, strong writers, phenomenal suspense and action sequence, steamy sex scenes, etc.. I can go on an on. This movie is so mind blowing and flawless that it is easily the best movie of 2009 and, possibly, 2010.
Three brilliant cops. Three career paths. Tango is an undercover cop who wants the long-promised desk-job promotion but is forced into one more assignment. Sal is a corrupt cop who kills and steals to make up for the low police salary that keeps his family a tendril above poverty. Eddie is the oldest cop in the precinct who is days away from retirement.
Here, Director Antoine Fuqua uses the same multi-story technique as Crash but hightens the drama and the layers of social complexity. Fuqua takes no prisoners as every action has a consequence and every path converge into one explosive finale. And what a mind-bogging explosion! Don Cheadle is in rare form, his best acting to date, which may prove him to be the best actor in Hollywood. Don Cheadle is charismatic, gritty, mesmerizing and satisfying in this role. Ethan Hawke really delivers superb acting, grit and edge. Shannon Kane, as a prostitute, is a sexy treat. Richard Gere as a washed-out cop delivers snug acting. Wesley Snipes... It is refreshing to see him back on the big screen.
I had the pleasure to see it on big screen. Those who didn't, go rent this DVD tonight!
