You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
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…
From the Trivia section of imdb:
"The quote "King Kong aint got shit on me" is a reference to 1930s King Kong"
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!
denzel washington is one of history's finest actors, but he has one fatal flaw - he isn't good enough to make me hate him, so there's no satisfaction in his downfall, no matter how much he deserves it. this is worth seeing for how much fun he's clearly having.
Stylish and compelling. Propelled by Washington's man-on-fire Oscar-winning performance. Behind the camera, Fuqua directs with an appropriate amount of grit and unrelenting tension.
KING KONG AIN'T GOT SHIT ON ME
Training Day excels above the average crime thriller by being uncomfortable and by measure of its lead performances from Hawke and Washington. I disagree with the assertion that its use of police brutality is realistic; though uncomfortable, it's heightened to such a self-serving evil as to lose track of the realities of police violence.
Also, not enough Eva Mendez, folks.
Movie #2 of my Denzel Washington Marathon. This is a very good movie. Denzel overacts at times and I don't think deserved his Oscar for this movie, I think they were just making up for not getting it the year prior. Ethan Hawke was great and overall just a solid movie.
it's a shame the narrative can't quite match what Denzel brings to the table - it could've been special, but sometimes it's enough to be left with a dominating performance that makes every minute watchable.
Training Day es la película que cada vez que me la encuentro en televisión la veo.
Denzel es increíble Ethan Hawke hace buen papel de policia bonachon e ilusionado, los raperos favoritos de mi generacióm, buena acción, policías corruptos, mafia rusa, Los Angeles que mas quieres.
Training Day es bestial
Denzel is a good actor.
Great movie, solid performances from Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke. I think the first half of this movie is superior to the second as it starts to feel like a lot of 'hood movies' although it does things slightly different.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Ethan Hawke has made a career out of perfecting the nervous smile and candid shake of the head. Even as he gets older he has retained that youthful naivety about him. In Lord of War I noted he was woefully miscast as the FBI hotshot - Hawke is not the arrogant, in control type. In Training Day he is a different brand of law enforcement, where his character plays to his strengths. In the beginning Jake Hoyt feigns confidence and ambition, but soon after is immediately wringing his hands and vibrating with a nervous energy because of the things he is being asked to do (he put this aura to great use as the fresh faced teenager in Before Sunrise).…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
