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>

Trivia

When Richard Gere's character turns in his badge it is placed in a mold as many police officers purchase duplicate badges to wear. The mold is used to insure that they are turning in the issued badge. See more »

Goofs

There are several radio call errors. Conversations with neighborhood sector cars usually use the precinct number followed by a alphabetical name, so Eddie's car might be "6-5 Adam" or "6-5 Boy". The response to the dispatcher would be to "Central", not "Central 1". Also, the reference to a "10-10 in progress" is incorrect. A 10-10 in the NYPD radio code is to a possible crime and should carry with it the nature of the crime. And it can't be in progress if it may not be a crime at all. See more »

Let me just say straight away that the cast of this movie contains ALL of my favorite actors. I thought I was going to be in for a treat, maybe my expectations ruined my conclusions.

The biggest problem with this film (in my worthless opinion) is that it is portrayed as dramatic and yet there just seem to be soooooo many holes in the plot that the overall impact is reduced, almost to the point of being farcical. I won't give anything away but I don't believe that 'gangsters' are THAT stupid, I watched the TV show 'The Wire', which I thought was excellent due to it's balanced perspective. This film portrays the cops as being crooked, lifeless and aggressive morons whilst the 'gangster' are simply gun toting foul mouthed idiots who struggle to walk upright, let alone be career criminals.

By the time the final scene began I found myself struggling to stay awake because the 'drama' had become so Tepid and predictable.

Very very average.
