Academy Award®-winner Russell Crowe is an honest cop battling drugs and police corruption in 1970s New York. The main focus of his investigation is a huge heroin empire built by a charismatic black drug dealer (Academy Award®-winner Denzel Washington) who imports enormous amounts of top-grade heroin from Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. Working from a powerful screenplay by Academy Award®-winning writer Steven Zaillian (Schindler's List), Academy Award®-nominated director Ridley Scott helms a taut and gritty crime drama featuring powerhouse performances from its heavyweight leading men. Based on a true story.
