New York, 1974 and Chris (Clive Owen) is released from prison. Younger brother Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with an aspiring future doesn't want to be there but it's family. It's the standard story.Chris wants to stay on the straight and narrow but It's hard on the outside when you've got form and guesse what, it's back to a life of crime. Should Frank cover for his brother and salvage the only family he has or should he do the right thing and risk destroying everything he loves?
Great cast and the movie looks good with a 70s feel but it's predictable, ordinary and you yearn for some punchy ideas to lift it above the pedestrian.
