Training Day | Wizard Rating:
This is an entertaining movie. It kept my interest all the way through. Denzel is an actor, and shines here. I believed that most of the things shown in this movie actually happen. Denzel believes what he is doing is right. He believes that he is above the law. He's put lots of perps behind bars and he's proud of it. He mocks the uniformed officers. He makes corruption look cool. I'm not so sure that's a good thing, but it was fun to watch.
Ethan plays the rookie. He plays, well, a dumb-ass-white-boy-wannabe-detective. He has morals. A big no no in the narc business. To play Denzel's game, you've got to be bad. Really bad. Ignore rapists, search houses without a warrant, steal confiscated drugs and money, kill people. Behave like a street thug with a bigger stick -- a badge. It's a jungle out there. In this movie, Alonzo is the king of his jungle, and rules with fear.
Snoop dog plays a wheel chair burdoned crack dealer, Dr. Dre plays a bad guy cop and can't act worth shit. Every one of his lines should have been left on the editor's table. Snoop does a better job. Eva Mendes plays Denzel's wife. She gets naked near the end. Woo hoo.
