Exposed Trailer


Scotty Galban and his partner Joey are New York City cops, whilst Scotty usually sticks to the rules, his partner has been tempted by dirty money. When Joey is found on an underground rail road track with a knife in his back, Scotty immediately goes to the scene.

Scotty wants justive for his partner but he also knows Joey was taking money from drug dealers and by finding his murderers, he might just bring a lot of dark secrets to light that are best kept unknown. With few leads, Galban begins to piece together his partners last steps and his dodgy dealings - one of his first leads him to a teacher, Isabel, who he feels is connected to the case in more ways than she's letting on.

Exposed is a gritty 'whodunnit' based in a modern day New York City directed by Declan Dale.

Safe Trailer


Former elite agent Luke White lives in New York and is all too familiar with the city's seedy underbelly, which crawls with corrupt policemen, killers and gangsters. The policemen, along with the Russian mafia and the Triads, are all looking for New York's Most Wanted, who has memorised a very long safe combination that is of the utmost importance.

Henry's Crime Review


Good
This sleepy comedy is surprisingly entertaining as its plot twists and turns along the way, combining a bank heist with a romance. And rather a lot of Chekhov too. But it's the likeable cast that makes it worth seeing.

Henry (Reeves) is just drifting through life with his wife Debbie (Greer) when his old school friend Eddie (Stevens) leaves him to take the fall for a bank robbery Henry knew nothing about. His life in prison isn't much worse than outside, and his new friend Max (Caan) makes up for the fact that Debbie runs off with one of the robbers (Hoch). And when he gets out a year or so later, Henry decides that since he's done the time, he might as well do the crime.

We Own The Night Review


OK
James Gray has assembled what looks and sounds like a good, smart thriller with We Own the Night: a strong cast, serious aspirations, a specific time and place (Brooklyn, 1988). The story is shopworn, but not without dramatic potential: Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg play brothers on the opposite-ish sides of the law; Joseph (Wahlberg) has followed in the footsteps of their father (Robert Duvall) and joined the NYPD while Bobby (Phoenix) rebels by running a seedy nightclub. With a drug dealer inching into Bobby's territory, he's forced to reconsider his loyalties.

Meanwhile, the movie forces me to reconsider my own, because it spends a lot more time seeming like a good movie than actually being one. For a film with such an ominous, encompassing title, We Own the Night is content to skim the surface of the NYPD, lacking the obsessive attention to detail that distinguishes other crime-heavy glimpses into bygone American eras as diverse as Gangs of New York, Zodiac, or The Assassination of the Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Even Night's period details feel half-assed and incidental, like background songs that sound more like bits of '90s soundtracks to '80s-set movies instead of 1988 itself. In fact, though an early subtitle says so, the year doesn't even seem to be 1988 in particular but a vague, amorphous "eighties," Wedding Singer style.

Whiteboys Review


Bad
Well, it turns out that a movie based on a one-joke premise (white guys in Iowa think they're gangsta rappers and, you know, front) can indeed fill 90 minutes with that one joke.

Too bad the joke is not funny. At all. Whiteboys (aka the street-friendly Whiteboyz) claims "It's all good!" but that's far from the truth. Actually, it's all insulting and moronic, as Hoch and co. try their hand at street talk and drug dealing with deliterious effects. Is this a comedy? I don't think so. Not on purpose, anyway. The film gets even worse with Hoch's frequent regressions into dream-sequence land, punctuated by real rapper cameos.

Washington Heights Review


Weak
When are directors and screenwriters going to learn to take their time in telling a story? That you don't need two million events and people to create a compelling narrative? OK, anyone else aside from Miguel Arteta and Mike White (the directing/writing team behind The Good Girl and Chuck & Buck).

Director Alfredo De Villa is another director who hasn't learned that lesson and his film, Washington Heights, is a stampede of characters and subplots that has no hope of being corralled into a cohesive story.
