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!
From the Trivia section of imdb:
"The quote "King Kong aint got shit on me" is a reference to 1930s King Kong"
So what I took from this is that Denzel Washington is scary as fuck, but the Russian Mafia is scarier still.
FUN!!!!!!!!! but kinda stupid in many parts. GOOD ACTING!!!!!! but kinda over board in parts. DECENT STORY!!!!!! but falls apart by the end. good cop film, the end
“Training Day” is not a standard film about cops. Director Antoine Fuqua had stated in an interview that this was the first movie that actually did something to him personally. The story is based, at least partially, on Fuqua’s childhood in the backstreets of Los Angeles.
The movie asks you if it’s possible to fight crime effectively without sinking to the level of a criminal yourself. Can an idealist be a fighter and a protector? And what’s the difference between good and bad?
Ethan Hawke plays Jake Hoyt, an ambitious cop who wants to become a detective in L.A. The fastest way to get there is to join the elite team of legendary undercover agent Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington). Jake…
Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke both kill it in this movie. Their chemistry is great. For the first half of the movie I was really liking it than after a certain scene I was loving it till the end. A very good crime drama.
It's been awhile, a classic. One of the best crime drama's about. Now the Question is ''Do ye wanna go to Jail? Or Do you wanna go home?
