We Own The Night - movie review

Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg do an excellent job of acting in their respective roles. There is a lot of vulgarity, violence, and sexual content in the movie. The sexual content doesn't really seem to add much to the actual story line and perhaps they were just trying to take up a few extra minutes of screen time. Considering that the movie is a cop vs drug dealer event, the vulgarity and violence are to be expected. Phoenix and Wahlberg are brothers in the movie, Wahlberg is a cop and Phoenix is a nightclub owner who allows drug deals to run rampant in his club. The club gets raided by the cops (did ya see that coming?) and Phoenix has to decide if he's going to be a good guy or a bad guy. The movie has a couple good twists to it that, although not believable in the real world, make an interesting story. I liked the movie. It is rated R.
