Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
The only thing more dangerous than the line being crossed, is the cop who will cross it.
On his first day on the job as a narcotics officer, a rookie cop works with a rogue detective who isn't what he appears.
when I was 15, I thought that having a tattoo all over my ribs that reads "death is certain, life is not" would be the greatest and the most meaningful thing ever. Now imagine my surprise, when I watched this film for the first time.
Now i'm a fucking narc.
I don’t know how Ethan Hawke could ever be nominated for best supporting actor at the Oscars, seeing as he was a clear lead, but I won’t argue that he didn’t deserve any nomination as his performance of a rookie cop who wants to make it as a detective was nothing short of superb. This may perhaps go a bit unnoticed, because of the performance that is set by his colleague Denzel Washington. I never considered him much of a talented actor, but Alonzo proved to be one of the best bad cop personification I have seen on television. And with this praise out of the way it’s time to shift over to highlighting the dullness of the story in…
Finally I got 2 hours of free time to watch a movie. It has been four day since I watched anything. So I started surfing in my collection and found this one in a corner part.
This is my first time watching this movie. I knew Denzel won Academy Award for his performance but I still wasn't able to watch it.
The movie is about Hoyt who has just been assigned in Narcotics Dept. and is being sent to Alonzo for his Training Day. Hoyt is a honest cop who wants to do something for his society by cleaning the streets by drugs. He his happy to that he is going to be trained by Alonzo who is famous for…
A solid police drama, nothing more, nothing less. "Training Day" makes up for its weak plot and overlong runtime thanks to the strong performances from Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke, solid direction from Antoine Fuqua, and its strong entertainment value.
One of the best movies ever!
This was a very disterbing film actually...
By disturbing I mean the realism of people and of the police force.
Dirty cops, crooked people.
Let's start with Denzel Washington.
One of the most powerful proformances I have ever seen! Menacing, tough, thug, smart, and just a bad ass in general.
Ethan Hawk on the other hand gave an equally outstanding proformance.
More of the good side of life. Unlike Alonso, he wants justice and to play by the rules. Smart, Loyal, good cop, and scared. He did a really great job in the very intense scenes!
Most of all...the washroom scene!
Definatly on my list for most intense and best scenes ever!
"King Kong ain't got shit on me!" - Alonzo Harris
At the centre of Training Day lies a mythical dragon. Amidst the grit and (supposed-) realism strides Denzel Washington in a rip-snorting work as the monstrous Detective Alonzo Harris; a dirty cop with many dirty fingers in many even dirtier pies. This performance of such dick-swinging confidence is so good that the film can't quite keep up with it, despite its best efforts to maintain a close proximity with it.
David Ayer's screenplay provides rich pickings for both established actors and stunt casting alike, with Washington and Ethan Hawke getting ample material to flex their acting chops with. The two leads are by far and away the best, with most…
Absolutely loved this thrilling suspenseful action packed film with an addition of a quality performance from none other than Denzel Washington. In my opinion, one of his best performances in his shady role as a "detective officer" and also a well done performance from Ethan Hawke. The ending could not of been any better even though I did not see it coming.
What's otherwise a thrilling story led by an Oscar winning performance by Denzel My Niggah Washington, directed and written by Antoine Fuqua and David Ayer (who just seems to never get enough of South-Central L.A.) respectively, collapses into pieces in the last 30 minutes or so, with the "help" of some questionable narration and plot-holes.
Nonetheless, after 7 years since first coming across "Training Day", it is still one of my favorite south-central based films.
überzeugendes gangster/cop-drama mit einem knallharten denzel washington.
Ethan Hawke, get out of that police car right now! What, you are going to be partnered with Denzel Washington? In your dreams. Gritty, gripping, edge of your seat stuff. You don't want to mess with the bad cop - really. Antoine Fuqua's finest.
Still very good, but oh so dated.
The first act of this movie was really exciting but Jesus Christ that final act is a goddamn travesty.
"you shot me in the ass!"
I recall my father being a big fan of this back in the day as it was one of the only vhs tapes he owned. I was actually going to go see if he still had it, but decided to go with netflixs glorious hd version instead.
Although I've never been much of a fan of Ethan Hawke, but Denzel Washington is one of my all time favourites. Denzel completely steals the show as the fast talking dirty cop. The plot isn't anything special but it's an intense ride the whole way through.
Disparaging view of PoC and so rooted in un-reality that it was hard to watch.
