Richard Gere and Antoine Fuqua in Brooklyn's Finest.

by Gloria Rzucidlo

Eddie Dugan, played by Richard Gere, is a 22-year veteran of the New York Police Department. He is ready to retire in seven days. He is so burned out and tired, he is ready to move to his cabin in Connecticut. However, the boss tells him that since he is a veteran that he has to train two new rookie cops. He is not thrilled with this idea.

Another fellow drug enforcement officer, played by Ethan Hawke, is married with a pregnant and ill wife and seven kids already. He wants to move out of Brooklyn and buy a house somewhere else. His current house is infested with mold and his wife also has asthma. It is harming herself and the babies. He will do anything to get out, even if it means compromising his values. Instead of a business cash advance, he steals drug money from this Brooklyn housing project, and it goes unreported.

These officers find themselves facing corruption and violence in New York's 65th precinct. Drug dealers everywhere and drive-by killings.

Eddie is bored and counting his days left for retirement. He is mocked by his fellow officers because he is less concerned with fighting crime and teaching the rookie officers.

The movie also stars Don Cheadle, Wesley Snips, Vincent D'Onofrio, Brian O'Byrne and Will Patton. It was distributed by Overture Films. The film was shot on location in Brooklyn, New York.

There is a lot of violence, blood, and vulgar language. Not a good Richard Gere movie.

OVERALL RATING:C-
