We Own The Night Review

Joaquin Phoenix shines in We Own the Night.

We Own The Night reunites director James Gray with two of the stars of his crime drama The Yards, Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg. The film, penned by Gray, takes its title from the motto of the NYPD’s 1980s street crimes unit.

Set in 1988, the story follows Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix), the manager of El Caribe — a Russian-owned nightclub in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach. He lives a carefree life with his beloved girlfriend Amanda (Eva Mendes), spending every night in a drug-induced haze of music and partying. Bobby, however, is not who he seems; his real surname is Grusinsky and he’s the black sheep son in a family of NYPD officers.

Bobby’s brother, Joseph (Wahlberg), and dad, Burt (Robert Duvall), are veteran cops out to bring down the burgeoning Russian mob — a mission that leads them to raid El Caribe. This bust not only enrages Bobby, but also incurs the wrath of vicious gangster Vadim Nezhinski (Alex Veadov) who seeks to get even with the cops who crossed him.

After Vadim retaliates, Bobby and Amanda find themselves caught in a war between the cops and the mob. Bobby finally chooses which side he’s on and tries to make amends by helping the cops target Vadim, who doesn’t realize Bobby is actually a Grusinsky.

We Own the Night

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007


Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix) has turned his back on the family business. The popular manager of El Caribe, the legendary Russian-owned nightclub in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach, he has changed his last name and concealed his connection to a long line of distinguished New York cops. For Bobby, every night is a party, as he greets friends and customers or dances with his beautiful Puerto Rican girlfriend, Amada (Eva Mendes), in a haze of cigarette smoke and disco music.

But it’s 1988, and New York City’s drug trade is escalating. Bobby tries to keep a friendly distance from the Russian gangster who is operating out of the nightclub – a gangster who is being targeted by his brother, Joseph (Mark Wahlberg), an up-and-coming NYPD officer, and his father, Burt (Robert Duvall), the legendary deputy chief of police.
