'Brooklyn's Finest' trailer: Arresting?

Posted on

Wait for the least surprising teaser line ever: “From the director of Training Day.” You don’t say!

On one hand, Brooklyn’s Finest has a terrific cast and taps into our apparently insatiable lust for crime dramas. On the other hand, this got awfully close to a rehash of every police drama from the last 25 years. Is there a cop cliche that didn’t make it into this trailer?

Speaking of rehashes, Ethan Hawke appears to be playing Ethan Embry’s character from Brotherhood: tattoos, corruption, grumpy smoking, all the right reasons for all the wrong behavior, bad cop, etc. Man, I loved that show.

Give me your gun and your badge, PopWatchers! Are you among Brooklyn’s Finest?
