Is evaluated to see if he can be part of a narcotics team
Paired with a glorified detective
Who turns out to be deceptive
Gets caught up in a corruptive unlawful scheme

The Big Finish

You ever see someone play a role so good you think that is not acting. Recently there has been talk about Denzel going Ham on Ellen Pompeo’s ass when he directed her in an episode of Greys Anatomy in 2015. I think a part of the iconic Alonzo Harris still lives deep down inside in the legendary performer. Washington delivers a long overdue academy award winning performance for best actor as I don’t tuink anyone could have done this role justice. Hawke more than held his own next to Denzel and as a viewer I was rooting for him to get retribution. Fuqua does an excellent directorial job as I am a huge fan of how he manipulated the camera during the car rides. There is also nice pacing as the days events really build off of each other taking watchers on a very fun and unpredictable experience. 2001 Los Angeles is also very iconic with nice cameos from west coast rap legends Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. The song still knocks to this day! Abuse of power has always been a relevant topic amongst law enforcement and the African American community but it is worse when that behavior comes from someone who shares your same skin tone. If more cops showed love to the hood they will show you love back. Once you lose the faith of those you were hired to protect and serve it is gone forever.
