Performers, Cast and Crew:
Chicago Sun-Times - 03/03/2010
3 stars out of 4 -- "The film and the actors do a good job of establishing these characters in their own lives....These are fine actors."
New York Times - 03/03/2010
"BROOKLYN'S FINEST burrows deep into a rough corner of the Borough of Kings, and also into the collective memory of generations of meaty, emotional movies about New York City cops in trouble."
Movieline - 03/05/2010
"What comes across cleanly is a satisfying hit of Brooklyn grunge....Gere inhabits Eddie's defeat with winning and occasionally moving subtlety..."
Film Comment - 03/01/2010
"[T]he film's remarkable cast helps Fuqua bring his sprawling web of nastiness to another level."
Box Office - 03/05/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "Hawke gets the best of BROOKYN'S FINEST, brilliantly playing a sadly misguided but desperate man trying to make a better life for his family....Gere is also splendid..."
Uncut - 07/01/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's played with considerable intensity -- by Hawke especially..."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2010
"[A] vivid contemporary policier....BROOKLYN'S FINEST has a certain intermittent grip to recommend it..."
Total Film - 11/01/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]t its best, BROOKLYN'S FINEST echoes the sprawling subculture of THE WIRE."
TRAINING DAY's Antoine Fuqua directs this crime-driven drama with an all-star cast featuring Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke, and Wesley Snipes. BROOKLYN'S FINEST chronicles the vastly different lives of three cops working in the outer borough.
