This movie had so much potential with some great actors but never comes close to being good. About a reckless son, Bobby, (Joaquin Phoenix) who becomes torn when he finds himself in the middle of a battle between his brother and father who are both NYPD police officers, and a ruthless Russian drug dealer. Director/writer James Gray, shows us the conflict between the brothers but never really develops BobbyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ethical dilemma long enough to build tension or create excitement. After the first half of the film, the story falls flat. And, even a car chase and shoot out scene in the rain canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t save the film.
