This Film has to be one of the most intense shows I’ve seen . Ethan Hawke and Denzel are a great match together. Ethan plays the supporting role majestically.
Great cameos in the show too. With Snoop Dog. Macy Gray, Tom Berrenger .
But the show is highly tense. But good entertainment.
“Are You a Wolf Or A Sheep?”
_**Great urban thriller**_
Ethan Hawke plays Hoyt, a rookie cop on his first 24-hour training day with the L.A.P.D. narcotics division. Denzel Washington plays veteran Alonzo Harris whose methods seem questionable, to say the least. Harris argues that one has to become a wolf to take down a wolf. Will Hoyt make it through the day alive, let alone uncorrupted?
“Training Day” had a lukewarm reception at the box office the first weekend of its release in 2001, but the profits steadily increased for the next six weeks as word-of-mouth spread. The greatness of “Training Day” is not simply due to the intriguing story and excellent writing, but also the superb casting. Hawke is perfect as the naive, but ambitious rookie and Washington is nothing short of stunning as Alonzo Harris, ranking with the best performances in cinematic history, like Jon Voight’s Manny in “Runaway Train” or Robert Duvall’s Col. Kilgore in “Apocalypse Now.”
As the training day continues Alonzo’s methodology becomes increasingly dubious and you can just imagine Hoyt responding, “I… don’t… see… any… method… at… all… Sir.” How can anyone withstand the temptations he faces and not give in (and I don’t mean the drugs)? Needless to say, the film scores high marks on the moral conundrum front.
There’s one obviously contrived element but that’s par for the course with movies and it could’ve been worse. Of course, the action and thrills are amped-up, but the tone is thankfully realistic.
BOTTOM LINE: “Training Day” is an excellent urban thriller with a captivating performance by Washington. It’s fittingly ugly, raw and brutal, so stay away if you don’t think you can stomach it.
The film runs 2 hours, 2 minutes, and was shot in L.A. Peripheral actors include Scott Glenn, Tom Berenger, Eva Mendes, Charlotte Ayanna, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.
Training Day A Solid Action Crime Thriller
Training Day is a solid action crime thriller with exceptional performances by Ethan Hawke and especially Denzel Washington. Director Antoine Fuqua has done an admirable job of making this movie about a rookie cop who gets into a lot more than he bargained for while on a day with a senior rogue detective to prove he’s got what it takes to be a narc. Denzel Washington is fantastic as twisted but charismatic Detective Alonzo Harris who takes a big departure from his good guy roles to play the villain in this one. Washington has show over and over again that he’s a talented actor. Well he continues to prove just that in Traning Day and then some. Ethan Hawke is equally impressive as rookie cop Jake Hoyt who finds himself in one increasingly dangerous situation after another. Hawke holds his own against Washington on screen and he may not have the flashier role but he goes a very good job as the hero in this film. The rest of the supporting cast including Scott Glenn, Cliff Curtis, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and a brief appearance by Tom Berenger are solid in their roles but none of them are given much to do and are merely given extended cameos. They still prove to be effective none the less in their brief screen time. The music seemed to sync very well with what was happening on the screen and the tone of the film. The brutal action violence is well executed but the showdown between Washington and Hawke near the end did get a bit unrealistic. It was still intense though and the two actors really got to show their off their acting chops in this movie. The vulgar language did get a bit much at times but the good more than outweighs the bad in this one. Despite some flaws Training Day is an entertaining action crime thriller with great performances from Hawke and especially Washington who make this movie definitely worth the time to watch.
Hawke Is Pretty Good, But He’s Fighting a Losing Battle
A standard issue cop buddy film starts off as a promising character study, but it devolves into a stupid, preposterous action movie.
This garbage was only taken seriously because Denzel Washington was in it. Had any number of other black and less respected actors starred, people would have seen it for what it was.
Washington gives a nearly terrible performance, chewing the scenery so aggressively it’s a wonder he wasn’t sued by the art directors. Ethan Hawke fairs much better, but even he’s asked to do silly things by the time the movie is over.
Both men were nominated for Oscars for their performances, and Washington won Best Actor, mostly because the Academy just wanted to give him a Best Actor award and didn’t much care what they gave it to him for.
