Brooklyn's Finest

2

Dirty cops in a grimy city...

Training Day director Antoine Fuqua is knee-deep in dirty cops and grimy tenement housing again for this densely layered procedural.

Weaving three parallel stories of cops grafting in one of NY’s toughest precincts, Fuqua scores top turns from Richard Gere, Don Cheadle and Ethan Hawke, all essaying various shades of dark blue.

Escaping the direct-to-DVD ghetto, Wesley Snipes is sadly underused as a drug kingpin, but familiar tropes are put through some engaging paces: at its best, Brooklyn’s Finest echoes the sprawling subculture of The Wire.
