Assault on Precinct 15
on 10 June 2008
Mark Walhberg plays Danny Wallace the newly assigned, and only non-Chinese cop in New York's Chinatown district. Greeted with dislike and distrust, Wallace has to slowly win over the respect of his team members before finally being acknowledged as a "partner" by his boss, Detective Nick Chen. This finally happens after he saves his life at the end of an epic and bloody car chase.
Caught in a feud between warring Triad gangs, Wallace finds himself unwittingly indebted to one of the charming, but manipulative gang captains, himself with designs on the gang leader's job. He soon discovers he is not the only one on the payroll but the FBI are closing in on all of them and their actions become increasingly desperate.
A good film, violent but with a twisting plot and good chemistry between the main characters, it slowly builds up to the bloody finale where all is not what it seems.
