Storyline

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.

Trivia

For the car chase, James Grey watched every car chase scene he could, from the silents to the present, in order to come up with new ideas. Grey concluded that one thing that had never been done in a car chase was consistent perspective, and that inspired him to film the chase from the vantage point of a single driver. See more »

Goofs

In a scene where Bobby and Amada are sitting on a bed, Eva Mendes is wearing a Hanes a-shirt tank top. The label is visible through the fabric when the camera shows her back. The "tagless" style that she is wearing was not available in 1988. See more »

A nice change from what's currently on offer at the movies!
17 June 2007 | by shoffman-11See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a special screening in LA. There were lots of folks there from all walks of life and all ages - the movie seemed to go over very well with everyone in the room. The move is filled with some very tense moments and excellent performances by Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Wahlberg, Robert Duvall and Eva Mendes. Phoenix and Wahlberg work well together as the troubled brothers and Robert Duvall is perfect as always. I've seen some real stinkers at the movies recently (I won't bother you with the list because it's too long) so it was refreshing to see that movies can still be well made with characters you can care about and root for. Since the movie wasn't finished at the time I got to see it, I look forward to enjoying the movie again at local movie theater..
