We Own The Night isn't just another standard cop drama; at the films heart is a fascinating study into how people react in extreme circumstances. It's family loyalty versus trust in your friends. As always blood runs thicker than water.

Thanks to James Gray's directing style and a trio of deft performances from Messrs Phoenix, Wahlberg and Duvall things are just as substantial abo... read more

excellent... up to a point

We Own The Night's script was truly phenomenal for an American production, because, let's face it, more than half the time American movies are made of lousy script-writers: there are usually a whole lot of flaws, or reactions/attitudes from characters are totally unrealistic or just plain stupid.
This film's main theme is not new. But the way the script was written - up until 1h30 into the ... read more

Beyond their differences lies loyalty.

I happened to catch this movie last night on one of my off days after missing it in theatres and curiousity to see how the movie was. I had just finished watching American Gangster and this movie gave me the same kind of feel; a carless drug and alcahol induced club full of fun and dancing with smiles across the floor. After the manager's brother busts in with his drug task force, Bobby Green is d... read more

"Format: Blu-Ray Viewing: 2nd Thoughts: Gritty as they come. Everything you could possibly want from a period cops and crooks film. Gray + Phoenix was like a modern day Scorsese + DeNiro. "

"A New York nightclub manager tries to save his brother and father who are police officers from Russian mafia hitmen. Writer/director James Gray's movie is a tense and gripping affair. The characters are shaped well and embodied perfectly by the actors. There's a pretty exciting car chase in the pouring rain in there and a bugging operation that will make you cringe with fear for the main character. It's not a perfect movie though as it drags just a little bit in the 1st half then it goes way to"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2017 (33 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 57min. First Viewing We Own the Night works most when it leans into Joaquin Phoenix's performance. While the family stuff is fine, it too often feels derivative and subdued. Any time Phoenix is on screen, however, the film has boundless energy that propels the whole thing. Luckily, he's on screen most of the time. Individual scenes work better than the whole too; a car chase scene set in the rain ranks as one of the most intense in recent memory. By comparison, the story about family "
