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.
