Overall this is not a bad movie, even if it has a somewhat corny ending. The direction is tight and the judicious use of hand held camera adds tension at the right times. The entire cast portray their characters earnestly and Farrell looks pretty menacing enough. Yet despite the dark brooding atmosphere, the story has been told a thousand times before.

All the predictable cop drama elements are here; (i) bent cops, (ii) traditional cop family trying to stick together against adversity, (iii) a cop funeral with all the regalia and bagpipes, and (iv) lots of skank-heads getting up to no good in gritty Brooklyn tenement blocks.

It all looks real enough, right down to the suburban New York City expressways and walrus cop moustaches. You're certainly not going to confuse the location with say Burton-on-the-Water or Palm Springs.

It gives films like The Departed and Serpico a bit of a run for their money, but ultimately falls short.

The case boasts that this film makes The Departed look like The Bill, well, the makers should be careful not to invite comparisons; in my opinion it's The Bill that'll look like The Departed after watching this. The main problem is the time it takes for the convoluted plot to get into gear, there are just too many stories it's trying to tell us, strangely, it omits some details we may be interested in, like some background to Colin Farell's character for a start.

Good points? Well, the idea of a family of cops with Edward Norton being the one good guy in a nest of bad-uns is good, and all the performances are solid, if a little earnest. The finale picks up some interest eventually, although the punch-up in a bar seems a little out of place with all the serious drama going on.

The film is also cursed with Hollywood's current fad for washed out colours, although the blu-ray image is detailed with only noticeable grain in some close-ups. Sound is disappointing; it's clear but not punchy enough.

One for rental only.

This is a great movie about the dark side of the NYPD where corruption and murder are just a way of earning an extra few Dollars. The cast is great Colin Farrell gives a worthy performance as the police officer and family man who has some very dark and terrible secrets. Edward Norton as he always does give an amazing performance as the the cop from a family of cops who has to solve the murder of several cops, only to find that all the leads and evidence points back to his own off duty life and family. The other great actor here is Jon Voight who plays the father and commanding officer who is at all costs trying to hold his family together while keeping the honour of the NYPD intact.

I really like this film, it's dark, complex and gritty, it reminds me of a documentary I saw not so long ago about corruption in the NYPD during the 80s were cops where working with mobsters or just out there doing their own thing. I you're looking for a film that will make you sit up and think then this is definitely for you.

I wanted to see this when it was advertisted so many times in front of other films I rented or bought. So finally I rented it in my local rental store and put it on last night. The begining seems promising, four cops die and it affects them in a huge way. Edward Norton has issues with his ex-wife, Colin Farrell is not all he seems and Jon Voight dosen't do a lot. If the script was written right and given a gripping plot, it would have done a lot of favours. But it's overlong, grew boring in places, disappointing pefomances from the leads and a ending that seems stupid and wasted. It was trying to be The Departed, corrput cops and massive shootouts but really it failed in that department. I was really disappointed with this film, I couldn't understand why they had co-stars who didn't do a lot and never explained what happened to them. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who loved The Departed because you will be disappointed or a fan of one of the stars.

This is a good crime/cop drama, and NOT based
on a so-called, "true story", although it does feel
like a real life drama, but there you go, fiction is
better at telling a truth...

This film shows in hard-hitting detail how police corruption can drag everyone into a deadly spiral of turmoil and retribution. Colin Farrell is excellent playing the cop who, off-duty, is an amiable family man but, once in uniform, becomes a ruthless crooked cop, just as brutal as the criminals he's now in partnership with.

Star of the show is Edward Norton, playing Farrell's brother in law, who gradually unravels the web of corruption that Farrell is immersed in. Also superb is Jon Voight who plays Norton's father and is a police commanding officer in the same force. Voight's character is torn between desperately wanting to stop Farrell's criminal activities from destroying his close-knit family, while also wanting to purge the force of Farrell and his cronies. This makes for a fascinating conflict between Norton and Voigt's characters, both united in their disgust of Farrell's criminal ways, but divided in the way in which Farrell should be dealt with.

This is an excellent thriller which is as emotional as it is brutal, and has some very powerful performances from the lead actors.
