This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The best part of this movie is how it fucking movies. Wahlberg raids a club, he gets hit. Phoniex goes undercover, he gets caught. Phoniex goes into protection, they find him. Duvall is killed, Phoniex becomes a cop. Gray might have been going for Lumet, but he ended up at Hill.
And Joaquin Phoniex walking under those red lights in slo-mo while Heart of Glass plays has to be one of the best intros of the past 20 years.
