42, Brooklyn's Finest


Wesley Snipes, Richard Gere, Don Cheadle & Ethan Hawke. All fine actors, each starring in amazing movies. An A-list to be proud of?

Its a shame they all put their name to the worst film I have seen since "Ponyo" (A movie so bad it did not even make the Blog!)

Now don't get me wrong, I love a good action movie. Dirty Violence, Swearing, Gun fights and bloody action but this was just truly awful.

Narcotics, Undercover & Uniformed Cops, all from the same precinct go about their days oblivious to each others existence dealing with money troubles, undercover loyalties, alcohol / women trouble, drugs, all the usual suspects and the premise is great but it just does not deliver. Over two hours of plodding along with no real pace, a few gun fights and more "F" words between Cheadle and Snipes than is really necessary made for a dull, slow, long turkey that will not be on my DVD Xmas list.

The last 10 minutes gets a bit better when all 3 of our burnt out cops end up in the same place and it all comes together. But even that's disappointing.

I really don't have anything else to say. Avoid this film. sorry.

See this if...............Pulling teeth is fun for you.
