  • I've seen most of his films and I think Denzel Washington delivers his best performance in this movie

      Directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Tom Berenger, and Snoop Doggy Dogg, Training Day is a gritty good cop, bad cop drama. It’s the story of L. A.

      P. D.

      Detective Sergeant Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington), a veteran narcotics officer whose questionable criminal fighting style blurs the line between corruption and legality. His being a good detective and idealism has been

      diminished by his long years of fighting criminals in the streets because fighting criminals by the book can get you killed and Alonzo and his cohorts even break the law themselves just to get the job done.

      Enter rookie detective Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke), an idealistic detective who is given one day by Alonzo to prove himself to him. Both men’s idea ...

      • of justice get tested and they put their lives as well as their careers on the line.

        In the end, Jake’s idealism (being a good cop) makes him defy Alonzo and his corrupt ways. This movie makes the audience think and decide what is heroic and what crosses the line in fighting crime.

        This is one reason I liked the movie. It’s

        a very intelligent and intense action movie.

        It’s well-directed and more so, well-acted. I’ve seen most of his films and I think Denzel Washington delivers his best performance in this movie.

        He is absolutely brilliant. This movie made me like him more.

        But the supporting cast was also very good especially Ethan Hawke. This is one cop movie that everyone should see.

        It’s just great.
