For years I've gone between top 50 lists or even up to 250-300 when looking at my favorite films. These…
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…
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.
"King Kong ain't got **** on me!"
Training Day is an Antoine Fuqua-directed movie about a new cop (Ethan Hawke) on his first day. He rides along with Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington) as he shows him the ropes and what it's like to be a cop. But as the day goes along, Ethan Hawke's character learns more and more about Denzel's, and begins to suspect that he's not the upstanding cop he believed him to be.
I had heard a lot of great things about Training Day beforehand, mostly about Denzel's performance, so I was really excited to see it. It's the movie that got Denzel Washington an Oscar. And I hate to sound so negative, but I don't really…
Un thriller muy bueno pero también deja que desear.... es impresionante la manera de como Denzel Washington logra personificar a personajes tanto malos como buenos.
Fuqua's Best! Nothing too deep here. Just great acting with very little fat on the bone to distract us from one of Denzel's best roles.
A story about ethics, money and corruption. Training Day follows the young cop Jake on his first day as a narcotics officer in LA. With him is Alonzo, a more experienced policeman. With him he's going on a 'Training Day' on the streets of Los Angeles.
Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington are the highlights of this movie. Both with great performances. While Washington definetly gets more attention, because he's much more "In your face" with his acting, there's more to Ethan Hawke's way of acting. His eyes alone make some of his reactions incredible.
While I didn't really like the ending to the final fight, I enjoyed the rest of the movies with some expected and unexpected cameos. Dr. Dre…
One of Denzel's finest . Great character and story . I bloody love this film . One I can watch anytime .
Daaaaaaaamn. Denzel is so the man in this movie.
This was really good, greatly performed.
Excellent. I appreciated the unexpected as well.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
