We Own the Night  

Posted by: Isabel in ,

Bobby Green has turned his back on the family business. The popular manager of El Caribe, the legendary Russian-owned nightclub in Brooklyn's Brighton Beach, he has changed his last name and concealed his connection to a long line of distinguished New York cops. For Bobby, every night is a party, as he greets friends and customers or dances with his beautiful Puerto Rican girlfriend, Amada, in a haze of cigarette smoke and disco music. But it's 1988, and New York City's drug trade is escalating. Bobby tries to keep a friendly distance from the Russian gangster who is operating out of the nightclub--a gangster who is being targeted by his brother, Joseph, an up-and-coming NYPD officer, and his father, Burt, the legendary deputy chief of police.

I missed the first 15-30 minutes of this movie. My dear sweet husband was buzzed and kept talking to me. While I was trying to watch this movie. So I missed what was going on. Why they raided the club and all that jazz.

What I gathered is Marky Mark and Robert Duvall are trying to catch a guy who frequents Joaquin's club. Joaquin gets really upset when they bust into his club and gets into his fight with Marky Mark. However, he feels tons of guilt when Marky Mark is almost shot and killed. Joaquin decides to join the police to help capture the guy responsible for the hit and for later killing his father.

This was one of Joey's movie pick. It was decent compared to the others he's made me watch. Pretty cool car chase. Marky Mark and Joaquin Phoenix, both kind of hot.

I wanted to see this but didn't get a chance.

I like Mark Walberg.
