  1. Giulio Base's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Great actors not well served bu a medium average script and a bad editing.

  2. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film We Own the Night

  3. Bo bo min's rating of the film We Own the Night

  4. Jérôme's rating of the film We Own the Night

  5. Herlescu Daniel's rating of the film We Own the Night

    This flick is basically nothing but a glorification of police duty and state power. I was waiting for an interlude saying sth like "Proudly sponsored by the nypd - Join us today!". It's true that Phoenix plays his role nicely, but I found Eva Mendes to look kind of ridiculous at his side. 0ne star for my favourite scene, the pursuit in the rain, which was somehow unconventional and breathtaking.

  6. Mtume Gant's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Every beat gets more absurd with its salad of cliches. Bad movie. And its thoughts on strong heart and soul of NY cops are quite 2 dimensional. Give it a rest.

  7. riraru's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Großes Kino, große Geschichte.

  8. Epinephrin's rating of the film We Own the Night

    good old school thriller, however, after a great first part, second hour and the finale disappointed me. Bad script. and who would have known, it is so easy to become a policeman

  9. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film We Own the Night

    A decidedly strange film, this takes a lot of familiar police/crime movie tropes and assumes that the melodramatic plot will help it not feel overly familiar. It doesn't help. Phoenix is as good as ever, the rest of the cast are disappointingly wasted in their supporting roles.

  10. babycakesromero's rating of the film We Own the Night

    superb 90s thriller which isnt even sullied by the presence of mark whalberg. joaquin for his part must be the most dependable actor in action right now and he delivers a poyfect performance as a man torn between worlds.

  11. Inteleter's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Pretty good. Phoenix is fantastic as always and along with some good directing, cinematography and a good supporting performance from Robert Duvall makes this a pretty good viewing.

  12. Christine's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Wow! Joaquin Phoenix never fails to deliver - another stunning and heartfelt performance. Great film, exquisitely executed, tense, beautiful, emotionally charged, and a stellar cast to boot. It's not often the underground world of drug dealing and being in the police force meet each other face to face as it does here. Definitely worth a watch.

  13. UnbrandedFilms's rating of the film We Own the Night

  14. Zanna Walsh's rating of the film We Own the Night

    I am disappointed. It started so well, a really horny scene, fabulous music, great nightclub. Then, it just became dull. Mr Phoenix mumbles his way through, black sheep, becomes unlikely, unwanted police helper. Such a good cast, but, i thought the writing weak. Nope.

  15. I.Camera's rating of the film We Own the Night

    A middle of the road, thoroughly cliched film, with some decent action sequences but little originality. Phoenix and Eva Mendes in particular are utterly wasted on bland characters facing off against Russian mobster stereotypes in heavy coats. Very predictable and constantly explaining its plot to the audience, this is a weak film that would likely be forgotten were it not made by the director of 'The Immigrant'.

  16. raggiodisole's rating of the film We Own the Night

    In a sub-genre such as the one where this film belongs, it is hard to stand out. Certain scenes are zippy and ace, other scenes flat and generic. Wholly uneven, the finale is a dud, but overall watchable.

  17. Shane Ewen's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Solid, workmanlike film elevated by Phoenix's performance

  18. Olga Koroleva's rating of the film We Own the Night

    The plot is a little predictable but this is not to say that everyone involved didn't do a brilliant job. A very good genre film.

  19. JJ Viau's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Good action + Eva Mendes. Too many clichés in my eyes though.

  20. raffael's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Also für Mubi-Verhältnisse ist das wirklich leichte Kost gewesen. Aber das muss nicht schlecht sein. Unterm Strich war die erste Hälfte wirklich spannend (4.5/5), das dritte Viertel ganz okay (3/5) und das letzte Viertel - bzw. das Ende - ziemlich lächerlich (2/5). Ergibt schlussendlich - Pi mal Daumen - 3/5.

  21. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film We Own the Night

    A good way to spend the evening.

  22. Maria Luisa's rating of the film We Own the Night

    The film starts off pretty intense and well made, but ends in the normal us-american law and order narrative which is pretty lame. From the middle onwards everything is laid out clearly and serves all the stereotypes Hollywood has to offer in a black and white good/evil, police, family drama. Not worth watching.

  23. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Starts out pretty generic but seocnd half gets better

  24. Mike Jempson's rating of the film We Own the Night

    Much better than I had anticipated - but then Robert Duvall never disappoints. There have been better movies of a similar ilk - The Departed, Donnie Brasco, Black Mass, Goodfellas - but why is it that in so many American films the concept of tragedy loses out to that Hollywood staple - melodrama? Someone explain to American directors - they are (very) different things.
