If you think this is a light-hearted buddy-cop type of movie, then think again. This dark mas­ter­piece from di­rec­tor An­toine Fuqua, sees Den­zel Wash­ing­ton play­ing Alonzo Har­ris, a street­wise and edgy nar­cotics cop in­tro­duc­ing rookie Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) to the mean streets of LA on his first day. Con­flict iInevitably arises through Hoyt’s whole­some can-do at­ti­tude and Har­ris’ above-the-law ar­ro­gance. Har­ris’ char­ac­ter is also a mas­sive petrol­head and cruises round his patch in a 1979 Chevro­let Monte Carlo lowrider. Var­i­ous Amer­i­can pony cars of that era have cameo roles in the film too – watch out for a 1965 Ford Mus­tang, a 1963 Chevro­let Im­pala Con­vert­ible and a 1959 Cadil­lac Se­ries 62.
