Film synopsis

Burned out veteran Eddie Duga (Richard Gere) is just one week away from his pension and a fishing cabin in Connecticut. Narcotics officer Sal Procida (Ethan Hawke) has discovered there’s no line he won’t cross to provide a better life for his long-suffering wife and seven children. And Clarence “Tango” Butler (Don Cheadle) has been undercover so long his loyalties have started to shift from his fellow police officers to his prison buddy Caz (Wesley Snipes), one of Brooklyn’s most infamous drug dealers. With personal and work pressures bearing down on them, each man faces daily tests of judgment and honor in one of the world’s most difficult jobs. When NYPD’s Operation Clean Up targets the notoriously drug-ridden BK housing project, all three officers find themselves swept away by the violence and corruption of Brooklyn’s gritty 65th Precinct and its most treacherous criminals. During seven fateful days, Eddie, Sal and Tango find themselves hurtling inextricably toward the same fatal crime scene and a shattering collision with destiny. The film captures the volatile and deadly world of one of New York’s most dangerous precincts through the eyes of the men and women pledged to protect and serve, as they face the wrenching choices that make them Brooklyn’s Finest.

US release date: March 2010

  1. Are we about to witness the return of Wesley Snipes / Nino brown??… I think Wesley has tooo much to offer as an actor to be doing bit part films like he has in recent times, what happened to the Wesley snipes of Mo Betta Blues, Jungle Fever, etc… the Wesley that was actually a good Actor?

    Is he about to return?

  2. Ok this is clearly a combo of Internal Affairs and Training Day with a bit of Colours thrown in. It even has the same actors in it ie Ethan Hawke playing a similar role as in Training Day, Richard Gere also playing a role not so different and Don Cheadle who was in Colours. How unoriginal, when did scriptwriters disappear from Hollywood? All we see are rehashes of old films, books and TV shows. I won’t be wasting my time or money.

  3. if it ain’t broke then…. lol, I hear the hollywood machine saying 😉

    but yeah I thought the saw thing, what if Nino never died?… this film may show us that… and Jake from training day, he grows to go the same way as Alozo more or less, and Rockey from Colours, well yeah you get the point lol…

    but I still wanna see this much more than takers (hoping wesley brings it, but he does look old lol)
