STYLISH, SEXY AND RIVETING!... MORE INTENSE AND ENTERTAINING THAN THE DEPARTED"
-Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV
What if your own family stood in the way of everything you worked for? Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix) has forsaken his name to escape his family and their tradition in law enforcement to pursue his ambitions as a Brooklyn nightclub owner. As he turns a blind eye to the drug dealers around him, he comes face to face with the family he abandoned when his brother (Mark Wahlberg) and father (Robert Duvall) crack down on a the club. Now Bobby must choose a side. Is he going to turn informant or will he help run the biggest crime ring in New York history?
This movie views like a slightly more watchable version of James Gray's The Yards, which also starred Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg.
Once again, Phoenix turns in an excellent performance and Wahlberg... doesn't.
Rated R (MPAA)
