Was this movie exaggerated, or is LA really such a depraved, corrupt shithole?

      absolutely is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rampart_scandal

      The Shield is even based off the Rampart scandal, except the Shield is literally less corrupt than what happened IRL

      Frick... I've been raised on all those cool 80s movies which romanticized the american dream, so it hurts to hear that.

        There American Dream is not in Los Angeles, that’s for sure. I dream of fleeing to NorCal every single day.

        Those 80s movies must not be the ones set in NY or LA. Gangs were running shit when Coke and Heroin were king.

      Here, there have been a few cases of drug rings and prostitution rings controlled by cops. But not as large scale.

      Shout out to Cliff Curtis. Growing up in San Antonio, I knew a few guys like this. And the actor isn't even Mexican. Good job.

    Genuinely one of the best and most rewatchable movies of all time, every time i rewatch i notice something new about Alonzo's behaviour.

    All overwhelming democrat run cities are. Crime and drug ridden, huge wealth disparity, segregation, and education gaps. It's pretty much hell on Earth.

      but the north east of the US is a giant blue democrat blob and those are the safest parts of the us. New England, Connecticut etc.

            You omitted the overwhelming part, and towns aren't cities. The only city in New England is Boston.

              There's smaller cities like New Haven CT or Manchester NH which is such a shithole that the town of Manchester MA changed their name to Manchester by the Sea so as not to be confused with it.

        It's because they are majority white
        They are importing browns here though and of course crime is going up now
        NH and Maine aren't so dem, but that is changing

          So its not really a democrat problem then, its a brown people problem

          isn't appalacia majority white and is running rampant with the opiod epidemic that the sackler family profiteered from and will never do a day in prison for? But that would go against your propaganda right, dmitry?.

            Why does it still have a lower violent crime rate than the richest black city, fort Washington

              maybe it's because the policing is more pettily enforced and they allow low level offenders with fines instead of incarceration.

      when I stayed there in the 90's it seemed fine. Visited the la brea tar pits and even went to the observatory on a school field trip. Some kids did beat me up for being new and i' not sure they got punished.

      He's a based boomer, but hasn't fallen off as much as the others since he's still got a dependable base of black fans. Kurt Russell would be like the white equivalent maybe. These guys are all a dying breed.

        Dude's been honorary white for ages, I would assume he still has plenty of white fans.
        He's getting old for action though, probably should stuff like character drama.

      He’s old man. Real old. He still did those Equalizer films though but the last one you could see they were doing all sorts of tricks to hide how old and slow he is now.

      People hate working with him. He only does 3 takes maximum, directors don't really appreciate that in someone they're telling what to do.

        If he's only doing that little, he's still nailing them. Denzel isn't known for being the weak link in scenes.
