brooklyn's finest review

From director Antoine Fuqua, the man behind Training Day, comes Brooklyn's Finest, an ensemble drama about three separate New York City cops and the many moral gray areas they encounter in their lives. Starring Richard Gere, Don Cheadle and a very fine Ethan Hawke, Brooklyn's Finest has the ambition and scope to be a big-city crime epic, but the film is ultimately undone by too many narrative cliches.
