"...A flashy, cool and supremely charismatic performance by Denzel Washington serves as a flashpoint for TRAINING DAY..."
"...In TRAINING DAY, Mr. Washington's dry-ice grandeur -- the predator's reflexes contrasting with a pensive mouth -- deserves regard, and his powerhouse virtuosity will almost guarantee him an Oscar nomination..."
"...Washington is alternately menacing and charismatic -- one of the best performances in his career....Just as remarkable is the taut directing style of Antoine Fuqua and the gritty dialogue of screenwriter David Ayer..."
"...Denzel Washington, who just keeps getting better is a sparking, snapping live wire....His smiling seductive monster is a thrilling creation that gives TRAINING DAY all the bite it needs..."
"...[Washington] is never less than a spellbinding villain..."
"...A hellish life-in-a day cop flick, TRAINING DAY's a simple, brutal pleasure..."
"...Washington's performance gleefully goes over the top..."
"[T]he entire presentation is very natural and realistic."
Description by OLDIES.com:
In a powerful departure from his frequent good-guy roles, Denzel Washington plays Harris, the twisted but charismatic detective who both attracts and repels as he becomes the kind of thug he's supposed to collar. Ethan Hawke plays unseasoned recruit Hoyt. And Antoine Fuqua (The Replacement Killers, Bait) directs, guiding a cast that includes music stars Dr. Dre, Macy Gray and Snoop Dogg.
Washington's performance as the evil, pragmatic detective is a sight to behold. He delivers his lines with a devilish ferocity that keeps the film bubbling throughout. Hawke slips into the role of the rookie everyman with ease, providing a good contrast to Washington's fiery presence. Former video director Fuqua completes the picture by casting musicians Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and Macy Gray in supporting roles.
