Bobby himself is not involved, and adopts a don't ask, don't tell position. Bobby "Green's" father is Burt Grusinsky (Robert Duvall), the district police chief.His brother is Joseph Grusinsky (Mark Wahlberg), serving as a top cop under his father.Sony SRS-XB40 has a built-in multi-coloured line light, speaker lights and a flashing strobe.
His three films so far - Little Odessa (1994), The Yards (2000) and now We Own the Night - are all New York crime dramas about flawed families buffeted by ruthless forces bigger than themselves.
The club is owned by a Russian emigre named Marat Bujayev (Moni Moshonov), whose smile seems sincere, but who is said to control the area's drug traffic.
Bujayev's nephew Vadim (Alex Veadov) is a dealer, using the club as his base of operations.
If it were known that Bobby is related to them, his life would be in danger. Vadim asks Bobby to join him in the drug trade, at the same time the chief orders a crackdown. A police raid busts the club, and there are reprisals involving the near-murder of both the chief and the cop.
Bobby's father asks him to work undercover for them, promising, "We'll watch your back." Excellent, but who was watching the chief's back? Martin Scorsese's "The Departed" (2006), inspired by the Hong Kong "Infernal Affairs" (2002), is also about brothers on two sides of the war. But "We Own the Night" seems less original than the first two, maybe because of the Scorsese film, maybe because Russian gangsters have become the villains du jour (see them portrayed more urgently in David Cronenberg's "Eastern Promises").
