The action packed Brooklyn’s Finest hits movie theaters this Friday.  The movie features an all-star cast starring Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes and has gotten great reviews thus far. To read a synopsis and see a trailer, hit the jump.

Training Day director Antoine Fuqua takes viewers on a dark ride through the streets of Brooklyn, following three New York Police officers as they wrestle with temptation, loyalty, and duty while attempting to uphold the law, and deal with the pressures of the job. Eddie Dugan (Richard Gere) is days away from retirement, but he’s been burnt-out for years. Unable to remember why he signed up for the job in the first place, all Eddie can think about is retreating to his fishing cabin in Connecticut, and forgetting the horrors that he’s seen during his decades on the job. At the same time, undercover narcotics cop Clarance “Tango” Butler (Don Cheadle) is right in the thick of it. As hard as he tries to quit, however, his superiors always find a way of keeping him on the job. Much like Dugan, he’s lost sight of his priorities, and these days Tango’s loyalties seem to lie more with notorious inner-city drug dealer Caz (Wesley Snipes) than with the boys in blue. And Tango isn’t the only cop whose being drawn to the dark side of the law; Narcotics officer Sal Procida (Ethan Hawke)’s wife is currently pregnant with twins, and he’s barely making enough to keep his family afloat. When Sal learns that his wife is at risk of losing their unborn children, desperation drives him to consider unethical means of ensuring financial stability. In seven days, the lives of all three officers will converge on one crime scene as the NYPD attempts to clean up the BK projects, the epicenter of lawlessness in the highest-crime precinct. -Fandango
