Delivers an emotional wallop

As angry as I am most times with the police, I'm surprised that there are cop movies that can move me, and this one certainly did. It succeeds mainly because it humanizes the cops by spending most of the film on their relationship. They are just two guys with a sense of humor and also a heart for the people in the hood, those who deserve their heart. Of course, with bad guys they are ruthless. The film all comes together the last 45 minutes. Before then, I was wondering "okay, where is this going?" but it finally go there and did it well.

This movie was great. I went in thinking it was going to be so-so...once it it started I was pulled in. All the actors in this movie had great performances. I laughed, cried and felt nervous at times. Overall, great movie. This movie is NOT for kids. I was completely shocked to see a mother come in with her son who was maybe 10 years of age. ADULTS ONLY PLEASE!

Gritty? Definitely! Realistic? Absolutely! Brutal? Immensely! Entertaining? Oh my, YES!! I don't understand why Michael Pena and Jake Gyllenhaal are not at the top of everyone's best actor list this year. Their chemistry is off the charts. Add their performances to a top notch script that is filled with heart, humor and tension and you've got a film that defines what we go to movies for. And for all of it's action and violence, the real story is the loving friendship between the two main characters. Absolutely authentic. I loved this movie!

What entertaining this movie is, So Real, with todays movies they have so much special affects that you know its not real and go along with it, But the actors did a very good job, I felt like it was video taped for Real and it keeps you laughing until the very end, but then it gives you a good feeling at the very end... You have to see for yourself.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
