This was the longest 157 minutes I've ever spent in a movie theatre. One of the problems with this film was that neither the hero (Richie) nor the villain (Frank) was a sympathetic character and I didn't care how it ended (although the epilogue shocked me). Gum-chomping Richie admits he's not a fit father and has no qualms about roughing people up in the line of duty. Frank is a slick, soulless fiend with no regard for human life. To say this movie is violent would be an understatement, but after watching so much depravity and cruelty, one becomes jaded and I stopped caring altogether.
The biggest weakness was that the two stars share the screen for a only few minutes. I was waiting and waiting to see these acting titans play off each other, and when it finally happened, it was disappointing. Washington definitely out-acts Crowe in a flashier role, and for his memorable performance, I gave the movie three stars. Very much a guy-film.
