Choosing a good, catchy movie title is imperative in the film industry. There are several connotations to be derived from a title like We Own the Night, which tells a story of two brothers Bobby (Joaquin Phoenix) and Joseph (Mark Wahlberg), both on the opposite side of the law who band together to seek justice after one is injured in an assassination attempt.

An exceedingly slow start with an explosive ending, Night takes its title from the motto of the 1980s-era NYPD street crimes unit. It stars Eva Mendes as Bobby’s girlfriend and Robert Duvall as the Chief of Police.

We Own the Night is an emotional crime thriller about brotherly love, redemption and the criminal underworld.

Grade: B

We Own the Night is currently in theaters.
