Synopsis: Rookie cop Jake Hoyt wants to stop crooks, not become one. But staying on the right side of the line that separates cop from criminal will be more challenging than anything he's faced. Because Hoyt's senior partner for the next 24 hours is Alonzo Harris, an undercover narc meaner than any of L.A.'s mean streets.
In a powerful departure from his frequent good-guy rols, Denzel Washington plays Harris, the twisted but charismatic detective who both attracts and repels as he becomes the kind of thug he's supposed to collar. Ethan Hawke plays unseasoned recruit Hoyt. Antoine Fuqua directs, guiding a cast that includes music stars Dr. Dre, Macy Gray and Snoop Dogg. Training Day, it's a day of reckoning.

This movie clocks in at around 2 hours. Somewhere around the one hour mark I found myself looking at the clock to see if the movie was almost done. It drags on for a while in the middle but picks up speed as it heads to the conclusion. Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke do excellent jobs in there roles. I do like how things setup early in the film come back later in the movie, which happens several times in this movie. Overall I did enjoy this movie but don't know that I would spend the money to own it.
