A cab driver finds himself the hostage of an engaging contract killer as he makes his rounds from hit to hit during one night in Los Angeles. He must find a way to save both himself and one last victim.
Brooklyn, 1988. Crime is rife, especially drugs and drug violence. A Russian thug is building his heroin trade, while everyone laughs at the cops. Brothers have chosen different paths: Joe has followed his father Bert into New York's Finest; he's a rising star. Bobby, who uses his mother's maiden name, manages a club. Bobby too is on the rise: he has a new girlfriend and a green-light to develop a Manhattan club. Joe and Bert ask him to help with intelligence gathering; he declines. Then, Joe raids Bobby's club to arrest the Russian. From there, things spiral out of control: the Russian puts out a hit on Joe, personal losses mount, and Bobby's loyalties face the test. Written by
The film focuses on the relationship between two brothers, one who lives a dubious lifestyle and the other who leads a very respectable, law-abiding life. This theme is also present in one of James Gray's earlier films, Little Odessa (1994). See more »
Near the end of the movie, during the last drug bust, where the officer next to Joe gets shot you see the bullet entering the right side of his forehead but when you see him on the ground the hole is on the other side. See more »
A perfectly Paced Thriller Pure Entertainment From Start To Finish!
We own the night is fantastic.
With two powerhouse performances from Pheonix and Wahlberg and a simple yet extremely satisfying plot line it could well be one of the best films i've seen in quite a while. Before my latest viewing i had seen this film once with poor picture quality. But after giving this film the viewing it deserves wow!.
The story follows two brothers on either sides of the law one a nightclub manager , the other an NYPD officer.
The film Carry's many important lessons. It shows how family is the strongest link two people can have and how love and change can take place.
There are numerous relationships that run throughout the movie some last , others don't some become stronger some weaken and this is all portrayed best it can by the actors involved.
The film looks amazing with some really jazzy NY scenery and extremely realistic police uniforms , equipment and station. It's great because the film is actually very realistic it never overdoes it.
It's not what you might have come to expect from a film with Wahlberg in its's not action galore but i suppose it does have it's moments which will keep some action fans entertained.
There were also some brilliant scenes in here. The director really does make use of the "simple yet effective" all the way through this film and it works so well it feels so natural and not for one second forced in any way.
Recomenned for anyone looking for something that's not only great fun to watch but magnificent at the same time.
