Sitting down to watch this film, i had no idea what to expect, i hadnt read any reviews and didnt know any of the plot details but I quickly began to enjoy the ride. Training day tells the story of Ethan hawk (a young cop who wants to climb the ranks) who teams up with seasoned cop (washington) who wants to get the freshfaced cop a feel of life on the streets.
From the very early scenes, washington makes an impact, creating a character who is believable but at the same time a little on the edge. Hawk also turns in a very good performance, playing a "scared of the consequences" role similar to the one he played in (gattaca). This film isnt scared to deal with strong issues and the film is all the better for it.
Training day has many twist and turns to keeps you guessing until the very end, and although the ending isnt quite up to the standard of the rest of the film, this is still a very well made and well constructed film in which washington gives one of his finest performances.

Format: DVD
After all the post-Oscar hype, its hard to watch this movie without a teensie bit of expectation. But after 10 minutes of the feature running, any doubts you have will be blown away. And to think this was helmed by the same guy who brought us the dire `Replacement Killers`. Denzel is absolutely superb as the corrupt narcotics cop, without a doubt deserving the best actor Oscar. If you can ignore a decidedly dodgy ending, then this will be the best cop thriller you will have seen for years. As for the DVD, its a case of good , but not great! The commentary by director Antoine Fuqua (its pronounced differently than its spelled fortunately) is average at best, never really bringing any interesting facts or anecdotes up. How cool would a Denzel commentary track have been (especially in light of his Oscar triumph). Definitely a missed opportunity. The rest of the DVD extras are your standard HBO making of` featurette, trailers and rap music videos. Not really exciting stuff. So, on the whole a fantastic movie, let down by an average DVD. Hopefully Warner will release an `Oscar Special Edition` soon that will do the fab film justice.

Format: Blu-ray
*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE BLU RAY VERSION ***

I remember seeing "Training Day" at the cinema in 2001 - the audience applauded at the end - and most left their seats with its gritty brilliance seared into their unconscious. I'm glad to say that revisiting this urban drug story in 2012 finds that Antoine Fuqua's directorial debut hasn't lost one jot of its power - and better still - is now genuinely enhanced by its reissue on BLU RAY.

The picture quality is far better than I expected - a really crisp transfer. Its default aspect is 2.4:1 - so there are bars top and bottom of the screen - but even stretched to full frame - the print quality still holds up. A lot of the scenes are one-on-one dialogue pieces in the front of cars between the two male leads - but expertly filmed and edited - there's no real blocking. Side shots of their faces are startlingly clear - even the sequences towards the end in people's homes and out on the streets at night are very, very clean. It's a top-notch transfer...

Written by DAVID AYER (a white man who grew up in the South Central projects of Los Angeles) and directed by ANTOINE FUQUA (a black man who did the same)- it's about a fresh-faced cop Jake Hoyt (played by Ethan Hawke) who is hooked up with legendary narcotics Detective Alonzo Harris (played by Denzel Washington) for one 'training day'. From dawn to dusk - it will be a baptism of fire.

At first Alonzo has the air of a man who's doing what he has to do to keep the river of drugs off the streets of Los Angeles. His methods may be brutal - but in the heat of street-justice - the end justifies the means.

I saw this film on the telly and immediately decided that it needed to be included in my library!
The film is a stunning combination of splendid performances from the leading and supporting actors, great direction and slick production values.
Ethan Hawke (who was so brilliant in Gattaca) plays rookie narcotics cop and this film takes us through his first day in his new role. His superior Denzel Washington is a multi-decorated street-wise cop who has a seemingly unorthodox work style which constantly pushes and tests Hawke.
Hawke slowly learns about the dark side of the city streets and the police system.
The performances are absolutely stellar, and Washington deservedly won an Academy Award for his role. Hawke is very good as rookie Hoyt. The rest of the cast appear in small supporting roles, but help construct a very believable picture of LA.
If you haven't already seen this film, get it on DVD - it is one you'll like to view a few times.

I thought at the beginning of this movie that the direction was very good and the photography excellent, this did not change. However, the 'feel' of the films theme did.

Up to the first, perhaps, fifty minutes the action flowed at a good pace, from then until the end things seemed to become 'muddy' I'm not sure if the script writer changed or it was decided to make a statement about corruption et al, but for me the ending just did not work, some one as overtly sinister, as Washingtons character, would not have walked into the situations he did.

I did not watch the 'alternative ending' which is included within the special feature section of the DVD, it may be more in keeping with the character of the first fifty minutes, even so the distinct shift in 'message' did not work for me.

I prefer the film 'Colors' for a classic taste of street wise police action!Or if you want a little gangsta perspective try Boyz 'n'the Hood.
