Dvd Release Date: 2010-07-06
Genre: Action/Adventure, Drama
Duration: 2hrs 13min
Something of a genre homecoming, Antoine Fuqua's latest film once again finds him delving into the gritty, brutal realm of cops and crooks-as he did in Training Day. Tango 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 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 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. Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, and Ethan Hawke bring all of the intensity and complexity required to breathe stunning life into their characters' fractured souls. Fuqua flourishes in this terrain. Showing complete command of the cinematic language of the genre, he creates a visceral and emotional punch that displays a master at work.
