CHICAGO – The “thin blue line,’ that imaginary border that separates society between order and chaos, is experienced on a daily basis by the police “force.” The human beings knighted with this responsibility are “Brooklyn’s Finest.” Oscarman rating: 4.0/5.0
Rating: 4.0/5.0

Antoine Fuqua, the director of “Training Day,” also helms this cop drama about a seedy Brooklyn precinct populated by different levels of ethical policeman psychosis. Ethan Hawke is Sal, a by-the-numbers drug enforcer whose Catholic roots bears seven children. Richard Gere is Eddie, a 22 year veteran on the cusp of retirement, portrayed not as the cliché that’s expected.

They are dealing with community tensions involving a shooting of an honor student in the gritty Brooklyn projects by a corrupt cop. The feds are involved, and have undercover agents on the street, including Don Cheadle as Tango, an ex-player turned informant. He anticipates the return of his former crime compatriot, Caz (Wesley Snipes), to write the final chapter in his assignment.

“Brooklyn’s Finest” opens everywhere March 5th and features Wesley Snipes, Don Cheadle, Richard Gere, Ethan Hawke, Lili Taylor and Ellen Barkin, directed by Antoine Fuqua. Rated “R.”
