There are good cops and bad cops, and good giveaways and bad giveaways. Let's call this a good giveaway/bad cop situation, cool? (You better be cool with it 'cause you got no choice.) Next Friday sees the opening of Brooklyn's Finest, the very dope Antoine Fuqua flick starring Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke, and Wesley Snipes as cops and drug dealers caught in an intricate web of deception and double-dealing. No spoilers here, but it's good stuff folks, trust.
Now for the "good giveaway" part. In anticipation of the movie's release, Brooklyn's Finest and Complex are giving away a brand-spanking new 250 GB PS3. The catch?
We're going to handcuff you to a chair and beat you with phone books. You've got to take our Cinematic Crooked Cops Trivia Challenge. The first reader to get all 10 questions right wins the PS3 (the winner will be announced next Thursday, March 4, the day before Brooklyn's Finest hits theaters). Some of the questions are straightforward, some a little harder, and some are really tough, but did we mention it's a PS3 we're giving away? Now, quit readin' and get to answerin', punk!
