With personal and work pressures bearing down on them, three police officers face daily tests of judgment and honor in one of the world’s most difficult jobs.
Veteran Eddie Dugan is just one week away from his pension and a fishing cabin in Connecticut. Narcotics officer Sal Procida (Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke) has discovered there’s no line he won’t cross to provide a better life for his long-suffering wife and seven children. And Clarence “Tango” Butler (Oscar nominee Don Cheadle) has been undercover so long his loyalties have started to shift from his fellow police officers to his prison buddy Caz (Wesley Snipes), one of Brooklyn’s most infamous drug dealers. With personal and work pressures bearing down on them, each man faces daily tests of judgment and honor in one of the world’s most difficult jobs.
When NYPD’s Operation Clean Up targets the notoriously drug-ridden BK housing project, all three officers find themselves swept away by the violence and corruption of Brooklyn’s gritty 65th Precinct and its most treacherous criminals. During seven fateful days, Eddie, Sal and Tango find themselves hurtling inextricably toward the same fatal crime scene and a shattering collision with destiny.
Why you care
You probably don’t, neither do I. The film is a complete rip from Training Day, Lethal Weapon and American Gangster.

Ethan Hawke has had three movie bombs in a row, could this be number 4?
There can be nothing good that comes from this movie.
Completely unoriginal. Ethan Hawke as another fucking cop? Don Cheadle’s character is named ‘Tango’? lol? Is ‘Cash’ anywhere in the film? Richard Gere’s return to role of a cop is laughable.
Our Clever Prediction
Box Office Flop.
