Remains one of the best cop dramas I've seen in some time; this isn't just some lazy late 00's thriller trying to capitalize on the success of "The Departed." Edward Norton gives a fine, charismatic performance and director O'Connor has certain skill in depicting rough neighborhoods, broken homes and bad consciences. Gripping and emotionally volcanic, I barely took note of the clichés some complain about.
Vorrebbe assomigliare ad i grandi drama polizieschi, ma fallisce ripetutamente. Per qualche motivo mi ricorda un misto tra Gangster Squad e Training Day, ma senza la cura cinematografica del primo e la complessità del secondo. Un film che poteva essere realizzato decisamente meglio, peccato per il cast che è quello delle grandi occasioni.
I liked the plot and how it unfolded; Everyone in the cast seemed to give it their all,a rare thing in a movie, from Jon Voight's patriarch, to Colin Farrell's son-in-law Jimmy. Edward Norton gives a nuanced, believable portrayal of a wounded man in a big dilemma. Best is the depiction of this cop family; I bought it, the bonds they had with each other felt real. Loved the soundtrack.
