Denzel Washington is sensational in this, the plot might not quite match his performance but ‘Training Day’ is still a great watch. It’s a riveting 122 minutes, I’m just not in love with how the premise is played out.
Washington’s character, Alonzo, never really changes throughout, despite a supposed problem of his. I kept waiting for a reason to change the opinion that the first act puts to you regarding him but it never came, there’s never a point I cared for him and I assume I was supposed to… at least to some degree? Also, his issue is thrown at you in one scene and isn’t really mentioned again until the end. I get the character, just not his arc.
Ethan Hawke is very good, too, in this, even if I kept hearing Tom Cruise when he spoke… You also have a load of now familiar faces involved, including Eva Mendes, Raymond Cruz, Cliff Curtis, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Terry Crews. Quite an interesting cast list, that.
Loved all of this, except the (still good) plot execution. Maybe that’s just me though. From what I’ve seen, Washington’s best performance so far. He’s the main takeaway from this whatever way you look at it.
This Film has to be one of the most intense shows I’ve seen . Ethan Hawke and Denzel are a great match together. Ethan plays the supporting role majestically.
Great cameos in the show too. With Snoop Dog. Macy Gray, Tom Berrenger .
But the show is highly tense. But good entertainment.

Training Day is a prime example of how just one scene can elevate a film to greatness.
You all know the scene I’m talking about. Alonzo’s monologue against the street that he thought would cooperate with him. That scene. Urgh, genius. A rookie narcotics officer is paired with a more experienced, albeit corrupt, detective for a day of training in the urban streets of Los Angeles. What looks like a semi-professional day on the job turns out to be a nightmare for the rookie. There are a ridiculous amount of positives, but unfortunately there are various negatives that prevents the police drama from being classed as a classic. At its core, this is a character study. A twisted, demented and self-assured detective who may have started out with the right intentions, but gradually becomes corrupted by the streets. The screenplay consistently reaffirms the idea that it is the environment that changes a person. Being adaptable under given scenarios. The depiction of the streets of Los Angeles and the black and white segregation is rather prominent throughout the film’s runtime. Yet it feels extremely real. It is the gritty and dark undertone embedded within the narrative that intrigues you and makes you invested in the characters. Speaking of our protagonist(s), Ethan Hawke was sublime as the naive rookie who just wants to help the world, one crime at a time. However, Denzel Washington just owns every scene in what I can only describe as his best performance. His acting was ferocious. Conveying confidence and fear simultaneously. David Ayer’s best script (although that’s not saying much…) and Antoine Fuqua’s best directorial effort. It’s just a shame the ending was unsatisfying with too many plot conveniences throughout. What were the chances that the girl they saved at the beginning was the cousin of a Sureño who was going to kill Jake!? Absurdly convenient. Then later we get the craziest overkill of the decade. Bullets galore. Alas, I do find this to be a gripping police drama and Washington’s best performance. That’s enough for me to highly recommend this.
If I could only use one word to describe this movie: BADASS
Training Day is a brutal, violent film. But it is a film that doesn’t hold anything back and forces the viewer to take it as it is. There are no clichés, nothing feels sappy, and it is a hard experience for the viewer at times to see the reality of the streets of L.A. and its corruption depicted in this movie.
Powered by an amazing performance from Denzel Washington, the man’s performance was 100% Oscar-worthy. It is one of those few performances that it doesn’t feel like the man’s acting, it just seems natural and you think that he IS the character. Ethan Hawke is not bad at all in the film, he’s actually pretty good but he lives in the shadow of Denzel’s performance in this movie.
A lot of people complain about the ending, for some reason. I can only say Training Day is as real as a film can get: it is bloody, brutal, nasty and I love every minute of it.
