We Own the Night

We Own the Night. The previews looked interesting, the movie stars Marky Mark and Joaquin Phoenix. I wanted to see it when it came out, I finally did tonight. Unfortunately it suffers from those high expectations, and a lot more. A whole lot more.

We never really understand where everyone fits, and characters aren't sufficiently introduced. The action is weak, and too sparse. The night club is strange and unrealistic, and there is never any chemistry between Phoenix and Eva Mendes.

We Own the Night takes itself too seriously, and never takes time to really get us into the story. Relying on star power just isn't enough these days. I'd say pass on this.
