Roger Ebert The film has a basic strength in its performances and craft, but falls short of the high mark Fuqua obviously set for himself.
Chandler Levack Brooklyn’s Finest seems to enjoy indulging the actors, but it’s about as authentic as a rap video and twice as inconsiderate to the seedy crime world that Fuqua can’t help but glorify.
Peter Travers Brooklyn's Finest is a cop movie so shallow, dumb, derivative and infuriating that it feels like a parody of bad cop movies.
C. Fuchs Mediocre as an overall experience and weighed down by one genre cliché after another
Tomatometer It's appropriately gritty, and soaked in the kind of palpable tension Antoine Fuqua delivers so well, but Brooklyn's Finest suffers from the comparisons its cliched script provokes.
