We Own the Night

Some great talent together, making a not so great film.

Booby (Joaquin Phoenix) is the black sheep of his family; Both his brother (Mark Wahlberg) and father(Robert Duvall), are high profile officers, while he is the manager of a night club with loose connections to the Russian mafia. Eventually Bobby turns informant, in an attempt to impress his brother and father.

While this film has solid direction and a great cast, its development and pace let it down; Bobby's journey seems shallow as the character doesn't develop at the same rate as the plot. The 3 leads seem to be walking through their roles, which does dull the film as there is so much expectation with these actors. However there is enough intrigue to carry the film through to its conclusion.
