Draws you in

Panamint, IMDb
8 August 2010
  • Summary: Draws you right in from the start, builds tension to a climactic point late in the film. In the middle, you get to absorb a lot of NYC atmosphere which somewhat compensates for the formulaic nature of the film.

  • Summary: This is a dark, moody movie that explores the angst of 3 cops. One, on an undercover assignment, realises that the more time he spends with crooks, etc., the more likely he will become like them. His request for a transfer is promised, on condition that he "brings in" Mr Big.

Overrated

19 March 2010
  • Summary: Let me just say straight away that the cast of this movie contains ALL of my favorite actors. I thought I was going to be in for a treat, maybe my expectations ruined my conclusions.

the Righter and Wronger ways of genre film-making

MisterWhiplash, IMDb
16 March 2010
  • Summary: Antoine Fuqua aims high within the limitations he has for Brooklyn's Finest. By that I mean the film is fairly low-budget, or at least middle of the road (my guess is twenty million), and it was shot on location in Brooklyn and places around.

Could have been a classic

Simon_Says_Movies, IMDb
15 March 2010
  • Summary: Brooklyn's Finest is clichéd cop film only in setup, not in execution. The scripting and a plethora of strong performance elevate the familiar veins that make up the films structure.

Very well-rounded cop thriller

John Malcovich, IMDb
14 March 2010
  • Summary: Brooklyn's Finest rests on the strong character portrayals of the lives of three ordinary men struggling at different points in their careers. What they each share is the New York Police Department as a workplace. Life isn't perfect - it never is.
