Brooklyn’s Finest (Antoine Fuqua, 2009)


To say I am rather fond of the urban crime thriller would be an understatement. The 1970s were by far the strongest period for this sub-genre but in the recent years that have been some stand-outs, such as the criminally underrated Narc (Joe Carnahan, 2002) and Fuqua’s earlier effort Training Day (2001). I have been wanting to see Brooklyn’s Finest for some time now after hearing a number of recommendations. Whilst it is not particularly groundbreaking it is a solid thriller with strong performances from an experienced cast, Richard Gere being surprisingly good.
