Storyline

In Brooklyn, amid drug deals, violence, casual racism, poverty, housing projects, and corrupt cops, we follow three officers: Tango, African-American, working undercover, believing he's earned a promotion to a desk job but told he has to set up the bust of an ex-con who saved his life; Sal, who'll commit murder to get cash; and, Eddie, the precinct's oldest beat cop, a week to go before retirement, assigned to mentor an earnest rookie. Can this end well for any of the three? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Who would be a cop?
21 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a dark, moody movie that explores the angst of 3 cops.

One, on an undercover assignment, realises that the more time he spends with crooks, etc., the more likely he will become like them. His request for a transfer is promised, on condition that he "brings in" Mr Big.

Another, a "good catholic", has more kids than sense and desperately needs to improve his fortunes if his family is to survive.

The third, an older, reticent, solitary man on the brink of retirement is totally without illusions about his job or his place in society. Doing his time and collecting his reward (his pension) is all that matters to him. He is aloof and uncommunicative with his colleagues, biding his time until he can quit. Only with an attractive hooker, that he sees regularly, does he show any sign of humanity.

All 3 are. basically, decent men working in indecent scenarios and their respective paths cross in a way and at a time and in a place that "we can all see coming" but is no less moving for that. There is a kind of poetry to this, albeit on the darkish side. that lingers .

Watching this requires some patience at the beginning, particularly with Richard Gere, whose role as the older cop, asks him to be almost a silent participant in the events, but whose performance grows as the stories unfold. But all the cast are excellent. Cheadle, Hawke, Snipes, D'Onofrio and an eye-catching turn by Ellen Barkin as "the agent from Hell" See this................... 8/10
