Rex Review

Forget about the movie (which is awesome by the way), Training day is about Denzel, and his character Alonzo, who might be the most charismatic, can’t take my eyes off of,  piece of shit in cinema history. I definitely would have smoked PCP with him…

Training Day Crime, Drama, Thriller | 122min | October 5, 2001 (United States) 7.7
Director: Antoine FuquaWriter: David AyerStars: Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Scott GlennSummary: In Los Angeles, a city where streets are overrun by drug dealers, those who have sworn to uphold the law are breaking them to clean up the streets. Denzel Washington plays L.A.P.D. detective Alonzo Harris, a veteran narcotics officer whose methods of enforcing the law are questionable, if not corrupt. 'Training Day' follows Harris as he trains rookie Jake Hoyt over a 24-hour period. Ethical dilemmas arise for Hoyt as well as the audience as questions present themselves as to whether or not Harris' methodology for ridding the streets of South Central Los Angeles of drugs is right or wrong. —Anna <dimenxia@yahoo.com>
