Brooklyn, New York, 1988. Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix) is a manager of the El Caribe nightclub – a man who breaks the rules and lives the fast life of the party. Joseph Grusinsky (Mark Wahlberg) is a highly honoured police captain in the New York Police Force – a man of principles and a stickler for the rules.
All this praise aside though, the movie really comes out feeling ordinary. I cant really talk badly about it, nor can I rave about it. It was a perfectly ordinary (some would say boring) super hero yarn.
