Movie Monday-Brooklyn's Finest

This Monday I'm going to review Richard Gere's latest movie "Brooklyn's Finest." I saw this movie when it was in theaters a couple of months ago. To be honest I like "Chick Flicks" and not "Man Movies." lol But I sucked it up and went anyway. I'm not missing the chance to see Richard Gere in a uniform! ;)
Besides Richard Gere this movie also stars Ethan Hawke, Wesley Snipes, and Ellen Barkin.

This movie takes the place over a weeks time and revolves around 3 New York City police officers. Richard Gere plays the character "Eddie," a police officer who is about to retire in a week. Over Eddie's career he has seen it all, and wants nothing more but to end his life. He is a very "weathered" police officer.

The movie is mainly about an undercover cop, who is trying to bust Wesley Snipes character in a large drug ring. Then the movie gets interesting when Ethan Hawke's character, who is a narcotics cop, would do anything for his wife and family, even stealing drug money! Through the coarse of the week, the three police officers lives intertwine.

In the movie Eddie, played by Richard Gere, visits a prostitute regularly and their "intimate" scenes are very graphic and very much is "implied" if you know what I mean.

As much as I LA LA LOVE Richard Gere, the movie was very graphic, violent, and there was a lot of profanity. So much so, that if it wasn't for RG, my husband and I would have left the movie halfway through! It is not a movie that I would want to see again. Sorry RG! lol

Here is a little clip of Richard Gere from the movie. Pause my music player so you're able to listen to it. He is H-O-T in a uniform, and the older he gets the better! Love his wrinkles and full head of gray hair! lol

I give this movie a Richard Gere hotness rating of a 7! The profanity and violence detracts from his hotness!

Have you seen this movie? What did you think about it?

I haven't seen this movie, but since it was just recently in the theaters there's about a 99.9% chance I haven't seen it. I just don't go to the movies that often.

I don't do cop movies for the most part, so I'm glad you warned me :) I love that you talk about how HOT RG is anyway LOL

You are a hoot, I tell you, a hoot!
