This Is War. This Is Brooklyn.
Three unconnected brooklyn cops wind up at the same deadly location after enduring vastly different career paths.

"Hawke - continuing an evolution toward stronger, more intense acting than anyone might've predicted from him 20 years ago - drives the movie.  Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"[Fuqua's] film is classical and gritty...  Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

Editor's Note
TRAINING DAY's Antoine Fuqua directs this crime-driven drama with an all-star cast featuring Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke, and Wesley Snipes. BROOKLYN'S FINEST chronicles the vastly different lives of three cops working in the outer borough.

Expert Review Brooklyn's Finest - DVD Review
filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 7/6/2010 5:00 AM
New York was tough back when Frank Sinatra famously sang, "If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere." But man, how things have changed. It's doubtful Old Blue Eyes dreamed of anything close to the nightmarish mean streets laid bare in Brooklyn's Finest. Antoine Fuqua, who helmed the similarly gritty but distinctly West Coast cop story Training Day, slinks into the nasty crevices of New York's congested melting pot of a borough to see what fuels its fire. His larger story finds room for multiple, smaller plots pertaining to men serving in the NYPD, though each leads down a path of redemption and deals with the slippery slope of compromise....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "The film and the actors do a good job of establishing these characters in their own lives....These are fine actors." 03/03/2010

New York Times
"BROOKLYN'S FINEST burrows deep into a rough corner of the Borough of Kings, and also into the collective memory of generations of meaty, emotional movies about New York City cops in trouble." 03/03/2010

Movieline
"What comes across cleanly is a satisfying hit of Brooklyn grunge....Gere inhabits Eddie's defeat with winning and occasionally moving subtlety..." 03/05/2010

Film Comment
"[T]he film's remarkable cast helps Fuqua bring his sprawling web of nastiness to another level." 03/01/2010

Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "Hawke gets the best of BROOKYN'S FINEST, brilliantly playing a sadly misguided but desperate man trying to make a better life for his family....Gere is also splendid..." 03/05/2010

Uncut
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's played with considerable intensity -- by Hawke especially..." 07/01/2010

Sight and Sound
"[A] vivid contemporary policier....BROOKLYN'S FINEST has a certain intermittent grip to recommend it..." 07/01/2010

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]t its best, BROOKLYN'S FINEST echoes the sprawling subculture of THE WIRE." 11/01/2010

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
Three cops, three journeys to what we suspect will be doom. No good can come of the lives they lead. They aren't bad guys, not precisely, but they occupy a world of such unremitting violence and cynicism that they're willing to do what it takes to survive. In the kind of coincidence provided only by fate or screenplays, each one will mean trouble for the other two...Richard Gere gets top billing as Eddie, a veteran with one week left before retirement. It is a movie convention that anyone who has a week to go before retirement must die before that week is up, but Eddie seems impatient. As the film opens, he wakes up, chugs some whiskey from a bottle and points a revolver into his mouth, never a good sign...Don Cheadle is Tango, who is completely embedded undercover in Brooklyn's toughest drug-dealing precinct, where he has blended in so well with the bad guys that it's a fine line separating him from crime...His friend is Caz (Wesley Snipes), a dealer trying to go straight after prison; they share one of those inexplicable bonds between two tough guys causing themselves to consider each other brothers when they should really be nothing of the kind...The third cop, Sal (Ethan Hawke), is a narc whose wife (Lili Taylor) provides him with more of a melodramatic emergency than we are perhaps prepared to believe. They have seven kids, live in a house too small for them, and the mold in the walls provokes potentially dangerous asthma attacks. Oh, and she's pregnant. With twins...The director of Brooklyn's Finest, Antoine Fuqua, made Training Day (2001), the film for which Denzel Washington won a best actor Oscar. That movie powerfully co-starred Ethan Hawke. This film has the same level of savage violence, and the same cops operating outside the same law, but the human stakes are more obvious and less convincing. The lives of the three cops intersect through a series of coincidences and inevitabilities, and I think we become a little too conscious that they're being guided less by chance than by a screenwriter. The film has a basic strength in its performances and craft, but falls short of the high mark Fuqua obviously set for himself. - Roger Ebert
