Brooklyn's Finest takes place within the notoriously rough Brownsville section of the city and especially within the Van Dyke housing projects in the NYPD's sixty-fifth precinct. Three policemen struggle with the sometimes fine line between right and wrong.
I loved Richard Gere in this, his character seemed to be cliche but was far from it in most films with cop drama. You can feel Ethan Hawke's emotion during his scenes the person I seen the film with despised his character while I seen a need for him to do what he was doing this disagreement between us made us connect over the film even further after the credits rolled.
Wesley Snipes did a nice job with his role as Caz it wasn't the typical gangster outlook which I appreciated.
Don Cheadle is a great actor but he won me over with this role his scenes with Ellen Barkin and Will Patton in particular.
Bottom line: Gripping and engaging a must see for fans of the genre and at least a rental for those who are not. 3 1/2 stars possibly 4 by tv/hollywood ratings
