That is easily the best scene in the film Training Day. I will never forget those 7 words. Denzel Washington plays Detective Alonzo Harris in a career making performance, which saw him winning the Academy award for best actor at the 2001 award ceremony. The crime thriller, written by David Ayer and directed by Antoine Fuqua, follows Detective Alonzo and rookie cop Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) while working over a 24 hour period. The film very graphically portrays the dangers of the streets of Los Angeles and the gang influence within them.

For those who haven’t seen this film, please do. You won’t regret it. Probably one of my favourite film scenes ever, is the near end scene where Alonzo loses his shit when he realises he has fucked up.

Have a look at the scene below, and if that doesn’t entice you, I don’t know what will:

If that wasn’t enough to convince you, check out the trailer:
