STARRING Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke, and Wesley Snipes
WRITTEN BY Michael C. Martin
DIRECTED BY Antoine Fuqua

The director of Training Day presents a NYC-centric action-drama that tells the story of three officers who in their own way struggle with daily tests of judgment and honor. A soon-to-be-retired jaded veteran cop (Richard Gere) is trying to ride out his remaining time under the radar, a narcotics officer (Ethan Hawke) is struggling to make end’s meet with two new babies on the way, and an undercover officer (Don Cheadle) is starting to become too involved with his role. But their lives are transformed when they become involved with a massive drug operation helmed by one of Brooklyn’s most notorious drug dealers (Wesley Snipes). The plots may seem like they’ve been done before, but think of it as getting three movies for the price of one.
