If you thought this movie is good, you should see the director's other project with Christian Bale - Harsh Times. This movie isn't as good as that one but follows a similar tale of naivety being lost in the hard street by a cop when exposed to corruption.

An effective film that holds your attention throughout. Entertaining and interesting to watch the training of a narcotics cop, although unrealistic in some scenes for sure it holds your attention is acted and shot well.

Oscar nomination Ethan Hawke Best Supporting Actor 3/5- A lead performance in actuality but he …
