Weekend Watch: Training Day (2001)
So recently I rewatched the film Training Day and loved it. The film follows the story of a rookie cop (Ethan Hawke) who spends his first day as a Los Angeles narcotics officer with a rogue detective (Denzel Washington) who isn't what he appears to be. The film has an amazing cast namely, Scott Glenn, Dr Dre, Snoop Dog and Eva Mendes.

Even though I'd seen this film before, it had me on edge from start to finish. Denzel Washington's character was deceptively likeable which draws you in. Without spoiling the film for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. I'll just say that it's worth a watch, the storyline is simple however the characters are fascinating and mesmerizing. Lastly, I can't do a weekend watch about this film without mentioning the awesome soundtrack featuring songs by exhibit, Dre Dre, Gang Starr, Cypress Hill and P. Diddy.
Currently available to watch on netflix or rent on youtube for £3.49.(prices correct at the time of post!)
