    The best things about Brooklyn's Finest are the one-on-one scenes. These are fine actors.
  2. Mr. Gere is miscast as Eddie, too naturally regal in bearing to be the screw-up he’s supposed to be, and for a broken man, he still moves with the same confidence as his younger self did in "An Officer and a Gentleman."
  3. 58
    To quote Yogi Berra, it’s déjà vu all over again.
  4. Each of the actors has strong moments but the relentless intensity becomes monotonous.
  5. 50
    Like Tango, Sal and Eddie, Mr. Fuqua and Mr. Martin dig themselves into a pulpy predicament, and then find themselves unable to do anything but shoot their way out. The movie is wounded, but it’s also too tough to kill.
  6. 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.
  7. 0
    Simultaneously full of itself and full of sh--, Brooklyn's Finest is a cop movie so shallow, dumb, derivative and infuriating that it feels like a parody of bad cop movies.

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

    "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".
