Brooklyn’s Finest “This is War. This is Brooklyn.” [Official Movie Trailer]

Brooklyn’s Finest is a crime film starring Don Cheadle, Richard Gere, and Ethan Hawke. The movie was directed by Antoine Fuqua, who also directed Training Day; which also delves into the gritty realm of cops and criminals. It was written by Michael C. Martin, who previously was a MTA subway flagger from East New York. In a recent interview with the NY Times, Martin said “I didn’t expect ‘Brooklyn’s Finest’ to get made. It wasn’t Hollywood overnight. It was, ‘I’m still working my 9 to 5, and I’m still writing, and I’m still trying to make my dream happen.” The cast includes Richard Gere, Ethan Hawke, Don Cheadle, Vincent D’Onofrio, Wesley Snipes, Nicoye Banks, Jesse Williams, Ellen Barkin, Lili Taylor, and Jerry Speziale.

Tango (played by Don Cheadle) is an undercover officer on a narcotics detail that forces him to choose between duty and friendship. Having been to hell and back, he wants out, but the powers that be won’t let him quit. Family-man Sal (played by Ethan Hawke) is a detective tempted by greed and corruption. He can barely make ends meet, and now his wife has an illness that threatens the life of their unborn twins. Eddie (played by Jesse Williams) is nearing retirement age and has long since lost his dedication to his job as a cop. He wakes up every morning trying to come up with a reason to go on living…and he can’t think of one. Fate brings the three men to the same Brooklyn housing project as each takes the law into his own hands. Crosscutting between multiple subplots, Brooklyn’s Finest unfolds violently and passionately as coiled, constantly roving cinematography contributes a measure of unease to the underworld action.

If this tickles your fancy you might want to checkout Righteous Kill. It is a crime film directed by Jon Avnet, and stars Robert De Niro and Al Pacino I saw the preview for it when I was upgrading my Direct TV Service. I’m pretty sure it hit Direct TV by now. It’s about two New York police detectives who are working on taking down a drug-dealing club owner called Spider, who is played by 50 Cent. There is also a couple of other crime thrillers that hit TV by now. To all my aspiring “movie buffs,” go get one of them Direct TV Deals. Im pretty sure you can find 1 out of all the Direct TV Packages they offer.
