Brooklyn's Finest: A Film Review
'Brooklyn's Finest', a good cop gone bad movie that is a really bad film with great actors. What a poor rendition of Training Day (part 2). Richard Gere, Ethan Hawke, Don Cheadle and Wesley Snipes are fine actors, but their roles in 'Brooklyn's Finest' lack luster and simply were not believable.
The scenes were predictable and the same old shoot'em up-bang bang over used drug dialogue was prevalent. Drug movies are hard to do simply because it requires a new twist for an age old problem, otherwise people just end up beind desensitized to drug dealers and crime.
Since Snipes has not did any new work lately, I was sooooo looking forward to a good back-to-film role for him. Not! His New Jack City image does not play out well for the now older Snipes in this film, neither does Cheadle doubling as a drug dealer gangster and cop.
Even Gere, who is a passionate actor, hardly spoke five complete sentences throughout this almost 2 1/2hour. His persona was extremely dull, including the hot sex scene he was having with a prostitute, whom he wants to whisk away. Sounds kind of Julia-like-Roberts in 'Pretty Woman'? It is, only she is Latina.
And Hawke, what can I say? Rookie turned crooked cop who ends up letting the job do him, instead of him doing the job, just like actor Denzel Washington in the first 'Training Day' film.
I have a passion for creating, producing and writing. While I have been grooming myself for quite some time to write for print, television and multimedia industries, I did complete the Radio and Television Program at Long Beach City College and my Journalism program at UCLA Extension. I am journalist, producer, writer, property manager and teacher aide. For thrills, frills and fun, I mystery shop professionally for businesses, and Toastmasters, Inc. is a public speaking organization that I am a member of.
