Released: 2001
Director: Antoine Fuqua
Starring: Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Eva Mendes, Snoop Dogg, Scott Glenn

We've gotten past the fact that it took Denzel having to play a gloriously ruthless and morally bankrupt LAPD detective for him to bring home a Best Actor Oscar. Mainly due to the fact that we got to see Eva Mendes naked, Ethan Hawke (as Denzel's rookie partner) smoke dust, and Snoop Dogg try to evade the cops in a wheel chair.

T. Rodgers, the founder of the Black P. Stones Bloods in Baldwin Village a.k.a. The Jungles in Los Angeles, was on set for all of the filming in his neighborhood and allowed the producers to use his neighborhood in exchange for casting gang members.
