DVD: Brooklyn's Finest, For retail & rental (Momentum)

This doom-laden cop drama comes from the director of Training Day, but while it has that film's urban toughness, it doesn't have the electrifying plot that went with it.

Richard Gere, Ethan Hawke and Don Cheadle star in three separate storylines which don't interweave so much as brush against each other in passing. All the characters are miserable at the start; they're miserable throughout, and the only question is how miserable they'll be at the end.
