too disjointed and incoherent...good performances are wasted on a bad script, with horrible direction.
AVOID. Despite some good moments, the movie is flat and very uninteresting. A would have prefered a movie only based on teh Don Chaedle/Wesley Snipe characters. A bit of a waste of time.
It was what I call a rental ! Was alright
This movie had so much promise - good actors (other than Gere), a good director - too bad it sucks. It is thebest example of how good talent can get off-track - what a waste of time
The movie wants to be good but its struggling with story line and direction. Too many plots are competing for attention. What they should have done was cut all of the fat, and focussed solely on Cheadles and Snipes story. I would have loved to seen the history and development of their relationship instead of having the characters speed past it. Also, the final frame, was truly truly WEAK.
Amazing. Don’t listen to no one but me :) A good movie does not always need a story sometime the story is our every day life. You might not like it or it’s boring to you, but to many it’s not a choice. The movie is fantastic the acting is sick and very touching.
The movie was interesting at the end when all the stories came together. I didnt expect it to end so violently. It was another cop movie filled with a lot of profanity and violence. I thought each story was fairly interesting. Wait for the rental.
this was no trainning day but it wasnt at all that bad. worth renting when it comes out on video
wasnt bad. wasnt a crazy movie didnt mind watching it.
They tried to input a lot of information in Slow motion. Did not like gere's role, Ethan did some good acting.the depressing, fatal and underpaid cop jobs in Jersey, if it's true?? wow. RgF
Not a great film - very dissappointing. Gere was mis-cast, which basically ruined the film. Hawke and Cheadle were fine. Snipes' performance was the only thing memorable in the film. I wish the movie was about him rather than what it was really about - corruption in the police force, violence in Brooklyn, and nothing else or new or exciting. I wish I could get my money back. g.
It reminded me of Crash, three stories converging in the end. A movie you can sleep through.
Not worth your time or money. Very Disappointed
Would not have gone it I was told it was all about blood, guts, and sex. If they didn't swear there would be no diologe at all.
Well the movie started and I'm still kind a waiting to see when the good part of the movie will began..Please go see another movie
This movie was a complete waste of time. Worst movie I watched in years!!! RUBBISH!
Been there, seen that. Only solid performances keep this cliched film from being a complete wreck.
Excellent cast but the plot is dark and depressing. The ending is comparable to that of the movie "The Departed" but the overall movie is not as good. Suggest you save your dollars and wait until it is on DVD.
Really enjoyed it. Strong cast and enough story to carry it through even if it comes in a touch on the long side.
This moving is nothing like training day, it's much better.
I loved this movie!!! non-stop suspense from beginning to end! a thrilling ride! great story! kept me glued to my seat the entire time!! This is another great Police movie! loved it beginning to end! I loved how the story played out from 3 different perspectives! well written! great acting! 5 stars!
Biggest disappointment I have ever had of a film. I thought it would be a great movie based on the cast. In my top five for worst movies seen. Save your money.
This movie was a let down. There was some action but not as much as expected. The acting was well done and the stories were very good however the ending was no where near what it could have been.
It was a huge waste of time and money
Hollywood again using big names to pull in big dollars and not producing a note worthy movie. I agree this movie did not develope into any story line worth following. Save your money people
I loved the movie. It was pretty entertaining I must say. Yes, it may not be as good as Training Day, but I would still recommend it to anyone who enjoys a drama packed cop movie. Antoine Fuqua never fails at presenting a good cop movie. When you watch it, you could almost smell the streets of NY...
Really not that great... I was really looking forward to this movie I thought it was going to be great. I love training day and movies like that.. This had somethings going for it, not a complete failure but really nothing special. It didn't feel like this movie really did anything or said anything.. about anything.. I don't know, Im interested to see what other people thought of it
very jumpy and confusing sometimes
