Something of a genre homecoming, Antoine Fuqua's latest film once again finds him delving into the gritty, brutal realm of cops and crooks-as he did in Training Day.
Tango is an undercover officer on a narcotics detail that forces him to choose between duty and friendship. Having been to hell and back, he wants out, but the powers that be won't let him quit.
Family-man Sal is a detective tempted by greed and corruption. He can barely make ends meet, and now his wife has an illness that threatens the life of their unborn twins.
Eddie is nearing retirement age and has long since lost his dedication to his job as a cop. He wakes up every morning trying to come up with a reason to go on living...and he can't think of one.
Fate brings the three men to the same Brooklyn housing project as each takes the law into his own hands. Crosscutting between multiple subplots, Brooklyn's Finest unfolds violently and passionately as coiled, constantly roving cinematography contributes a measure of unease to the underworld action.
This is a Blu-ray DVD made for Blue-laser Format players which produce higher quality picture and sound. It will only play on North American Blu-ray players

If you want a dark, gritty hard hitting cop movie with plenty of action and violence then look no further, this is a fantastic film from the director of training day, a great story thats well paced out with plenty of everything you expect, the movie has a gritty real edge to it being filmed on location in Brooklyn with a great supporting cast too, this is a quality filmmaking and if your into this genre then be sure not to miss it.

Brooklyns finest... Finest indeed.
This is a great film, set around the lives of 4 people in the world of Brooklyns police force. With some front line policing, down to undercover, through to the old timers wanting to retire. It shows you the harshness of the world we somewhat live in today.
The film grips you in a manner, and makes you feel for the characters in it. You really do feel sorry for them and the daily struggles they go through.
For me it was a very good film, on concluded on for me what was a very low point. But such a good ending.
the cast was excellently selected and each played their roles superbly. Dont be mistaken. This isnt a full on hardcore action film. This is a down to earth cop drama. Dont be fooled. You are guaranteed to enjoy this.
