One of Hollywood's moldy oldies—brothers on opposite sides of the law—gets yet another spin in this lead-footed crime drama by James Gray (Little Odessa, The Yards). Robert Duvall is a venerable deputy chief of police for the NYPD, Mark Wahlberg is his locked-and-loaded cop son, and Joaquin Phoenix is the leather-clad black sheep of the family, who sleeps with a Puerto Rican dish (Eva Mendes) and works at a Russian-owned nightclub that fronts for a sinister drug lord (Alex Veadov). The story takes place in 1988 in the Brighton Beach neighborhood of Coney Island, but I could never figure out why; with its pitiless gangsters and virtuous boys in blue, it could have been set anywhere. R, 98 min.
