The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
|NOTICE: In this
movie Denzel plays a bad cop. Many moviegoers DIDN'T LIKE THIS!|
It's obvious that many weren't expecting and didn't enjoy the high level of violence and profanity and the fact that Denzel plays a bad guy. I suspect this contributed greatly to the significant number of low opinions. The fact that it's not a "feel good" type of movie also probably contributed to the relatively low number of very high opinions.
I'll go out on a limb and say, if you go in knowing how violent and dark this movie is, you will probably enjoy it, if for nothing more than the outstanding acting. But don't go expecting a happy ending.
If the content is acceptable to you, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND "Training Day." I personally thought it was very entertaining and interesting.
Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
A VERY INTENSE police drama! The acting is great, especially Denzel. He makes his character very believable. If you enjoy violent and dark police dramas with lots of action and graphic violence, this is the movie for you! l predict those that go in knowing what type of movie this is, will enjoy it very much. Be sure to read the DETAILED CONTENT before selecting to see this extremely profane and violent film.
Every day, there is a war being waged on America's inner city streets — a war between residents, drug dealers and the people sworn to protect one from the other. This war has its casualties, none greater than
L.A.P.D. Detective Sergeant Alonzo Harris (DENZEL WASHINGTON), a 13-year veteran narcotics officer whose questionable methodology blurs the line between legality and corruption. His optimism has long since been chipped away by his tour of duty in the streets, where fighting crime by the book can get you killed, and getting the job done often requires Alonzo and his colleagues to break the laws they are empowered to enforce.|
The morally ambiguous world of undercover police investigation, shadows Alonzo as he tests the resolve of idealistic rookie Jake Hoyt (ETHAN HAWKE), who has one day and one day only to prove himself to his fiercely charismatic superior. Over the next 24 hours. Jake will be pulled deeper and deeper into the ethical mire of Alonzo's logic as both men put their lives and careers on the line to serve their conflicting notions of justice.
