Storyline

A family of police officers - patriarch, two sons, and a son-in-law - deals with corruption in a precinct in Washington Heights. Four officers die in an ambush at a drug dealer's apartment. It's brother Francis's precinct, so when the investigation led by brother Ray finds hints of police corruption, there's pressure to close ranks and save Frankie's career. Dad, a police brass, promises Ray that he and Frankie can clean things up, and Ray should focus on catching the drug dealer who killed the cops. Meanwhile, brother-in-law Jimmy, a hothead and an enforcer, is visited at home by a lowlife. Is Jimmy involved in the corruption? Where can this take the family? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In 2001, Mark Wahlberg and Hugh Jackman were in talks to star. Production was scheduled to begin in February 2002. After the September 11, 2001 attack on New York City and the celebrated heroics of the city's police, however, it was deemed inappropriate to make a film featuring corrupt NYPD officers at the time.

Goofs

When Colin Farrell threatens to burn the baby, he says it has severe "1st degree burns", but he means "3rd degree burns". A plausible explanation is that in Law Enforcement, the lower the number on the charge means the most severe, (1st degree theft more severe than 3rd). It's the opposite for burn terminology.

More True Than Some Want To Know
26 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen a lot of cop movies, so perhaps that's why I didn't find this picture "formulaic" as some have called it. I did find aspects of the film familiar, but for a different reason: I have been a resident of New York City for some time now; I have known law enforcement officers, and I think this was a realistic movie (except for the large number of murders, but hey, it's a movie). Many scenes of this film were quite reminiscent to me of stories I heard from a (former) corrupt cop I used to know.

I appreciated the fact this film showed the characters as human beings with families. I am tired of films that show both heroes and villains without back stories. I'm sure there are younger film-goers who would have preferred a more comic-book like movie...you'll grow out of that.

I liked the way the film ended. It brought in another dimension to the human drama.

Overall, this film is gripping, well acted, well directed and has an integrity to it that is often missing in films these days.
