    Antonine Fuqua's "Brooklyn's Finest" passes its exaggerated cliches and foolish dialogue to present a grim, realistic buddy cop environment with powerful acting from veteran actors.

    In my eyes, Antoine Fuqua is a one hit wonder, much like Carl Douglasâ

    A Film Review By: Sam Fragoso

    "Brooklyn's Finest"

    **1/2

    In my opinion Brooklyn's Finest was an average movie at best. I think I might of expected so much because of the great cast thats in it. It feels like something is missing towards then end and the ending is some what unpredictable but for me it wasn't my favorite film by Fuqua. Overall the movie was average at best and I say "Rent it".

    I bought this movie on Blu-Ray for $9.99 and hoped that I purchased a good movie, but when I started watching the movie I realized I was wrong. This movie should be called Brooklyn's Crappiest because that's what it is. As a person that grew up in Brooklyn, NY in between Sunset Park and Bay Ridge, believe me when I say this is not Brooklyn's Finest. The only thing this movie has right is the scenery and that's not saying much, but because it made me almost feel like I was back in BK it gets a 6 out of 10. I wanted to see these so called "Finest" at their finest hour(s) not their worst hour(s). This movie almost makes Brooklyn look bad in most peoples eyes when sadly it really is not. Brooklyn and Queens are by far the best and nicest places to live in New York City. If you want to watch a good movie checkout: The Departed, American Gangster, or even Serpico. Expand

  1. Here, due in large measure to a highly derivative screenplay, the director allows several reckless, unprofessional cops drive the movie into utter nonsense.

    It’s more like "Hamlet" -- the ending, at least, with enough blood and corpses to fill a housing project. The only thing missing is a point, which Fuqua circles for two hours without landing.

    Fuqua's portrait of Brooklyn is brutal and gritty; if only his characters were as vivid.
