From what I can remember, it's a pretty good movie. But then again, I tend to like really gritty movies like this one.

This is what I would call a solid film: solid casting, acting, story and emotion. Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Wahlberg and Robert Duvall work well together. It won't break any new ground, but it's a good film.

This sleek, engrossing cops vs. criminals thriller has plenty that we've all seen before, but it's Gray's calculated direction and the well-developed characters that keeps it fresh; memorable sequences include a notably hot opening shot of Eva Mendes and a rain-soaked car chase seen mostly through wiper blades. Final Grade: B+

"We Own The Night" by Yojimbo

Joaquin Phoenix plays a nightclub owner approached by his brother who is a policeman in the NYPD to help him investigate a drug dealer. We Own The Night has the heavyweight names and artsy photography to trick the casual browser into thinking that it is an intelligent and insightful piece of film making. Unfortunately, the cocktail of nasty Russian gangsters, dysfunctional cop family stereotypes and bedside vigils is straight out of a Steven Seagal movie. In fact Phoenix's shambling, mumbling performance even reminded me of the kung fu fatso, and by the end when the NYPD hands over a badge and a shotgun to a guy who serves drinks for a living it actually seemed even less credible. On the other hand, at least Seagal films can be so bad they're amusing, whereas this is just knuckle-dragging...

2.5 stars for the movie, 4 stars acting job

This movie really blew it out of the box, acting wise. You can never go wrong having Joaquin Phoenix as lead actor in this dark tale of Guns, Goons and Gold. Step inside the mind of director James Gray into his underworld of cops and gangsters. The movie started out slow, I mean really slow and if youíre not enthusiastic enough you could fall asleep right about the opening credits. It definitely sets you in the mood upon hearing its mellow dramatic theme, reminiscent of the all time classics like Scarface and The Untouchables. Iím not saying itís as good as them, but it just reminded me of those movies upon hearing the opening music. Like I said it was a really slow pace from the beginning of the movie to the climax. And you also need to listen carefully in the dialogue because some line...
