Consensus: It's appropriately gritty, and soaked in the kind of palpable tension Antoine Fuqua delivers so well, but Brooklyn's Finest suffers from the comparisons its cliched script provokes.

All the actors are excellent in their portrayals of their characters.

Tawdry, slick and self-consciously gritty.

Reel Talk Online

Each actor, including Wesley Snipes as a fresh-out-of-jail ex-con, gives one of their grittiest performances in this gripping cop drama reminiscent of 2006's The Departed and 1991's New Jack City.

Any movie that ends on a freeze frame of Richard Gere walking stoically away from a crime scene teeming with police car lights can't be all good.

The problem for filmmakers trying to make this kind of movie is that they are now operating in a post-Wire world.

Throughout his career, [Hawke's] broody emotionality has never read as phony so much as sincerely self-aggrandizing. Here, it connects with nothing, reminding us in turn that the film does not connect with its audience.

Globe and Mail

As directed by Antoine Fuqua, the film is well-acted, occasionally hair-raising but ultimately made from stale material.

On second thought, Brooklyn's Finest does indeed provide a new genre twist. This must be the only cop movie ever made where a character is driven off the deep end by mold.

A messy derivative downbeat cop movie about the mean streets of Brooklyn.

The cops and criminals genre has been done to death, and Hollywood's offerings as of late suggest that they have completely run out of ideas. With the… More

I don't know why this was so universally bashed, it's really a great move and in many ways beats out its contemporaries like Crash. The main reason… More

A well made and acted film but ultimately rather pointless.

If this was finest, God forbid me from seeing its worst. Except for a single scene, the complete movie was boring to the core.

VERY GOOD movie. Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes give really great performances. I loved the way the movie was able to tell three… More
