We Own The Night
I expected this to be a bit better, it was pretty average and it kind of dragged in parts. The acting was fine for the most part, Eva Mendes isn't a very good actress she was better in this but still not very good. She almost just seemed to not really know what to do with her character. Joaquin Phoenix was probably the strongest in this, he's a great actor and certainly elevated the role. I thought the script could have been a bit better, seemed a little bit weak in spots. The movie gets better towards the second half I thought, and I found it flowed a little better for me. The soundtrack was great though, probably the best part about the film actually.
