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.
Training Day is a decent film, but let's not deny the main thing keeping it afloat is Denzel. Ethan Hawke doesn't seem like a cop at all, and the script hardly gets you invested in any of the characters. This is not to say it wasn't entertaining: some of the scenes are really tense, particularly in the first half, but the intelligent script starts to wear off later on. Luckily, it does manage to hold together all of it's great themes until the very end. If you're looking for a good corrupted cop movie, L.A. Confidential is better, but Training Day is still worth checking out for Denzel Washington's strong performance.
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…
"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…
The universe of Training Day exists only in the reel and pulp-fiction where the fatal good-cop-bad-cop routine materializes a fantastic story that possibly can't take place in just one day. Although, I still enjoyed it thanks to the Washington-Hawke chemistry who played their roles with such confidence and zeal that I was immensely entertained. It's like sitting in a sweaty uncomfortable boxing stadium but you don't mind that as long as the match entertains you a lot, right?
So much has been said about Washington's flawless multi-faceted performance that it's becoming a cliche. But I'll say it: hot damn, wasn't he so good!! Even in serious moments, I found myself smiling and getting excited whilst witnessing how easily…
King Kong ain't got shit on me!
Every once in a while you need a good guy to play a bad guy. Throughout his career Denzel Washington had played the good guy the activist the upstanding citizen. When you thought of Denzel before 2001 you might have thought of his work in movies like Glory, Philadelphia, The Pelican Brief, Malcolm X and many others. But every actor needs a role that defines him and his craft. A role that has him play against type. Well this is that movie Training Day is raw powerful and gripping. For me Denzel has never been better he completely becomes Det. Alonzo Harris. At first you don’t know what he is. Is he a…
"King Kong ain't got shit on me"
The day of a new cop with a veteran cop, will show how far you can go for a job and what do you do to make a good job...doesn't matter how.
Denzel was amazing in this movie, if you don't have idea who is he, you can say: "He is a cop, it's from ghettos...he was born and live there"
A movie that has been on my watchlist for a long time but never got round to watching it. It did not disappoint. Denzel is the man in this.
"To protect the sheep you gotta catch the wolf, and it takes a wolf to catch a wolf."
-Det. Alonzo Harris
Jake (Ethan Hawke) is on his first day working as an LAPD narcotics officer. He is with Alonzo (Denzel Washington), a much respected and very experienced officer. The day throws up all sorts of surprises for both of them, but I didn't believe in any of it.
Genialer Copthriller mit einem furiosen Denzel Washington.
Definitely a favourite based on Denzel's performance; he's really terrifying.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
