You can't clean the streets and not get a little dirt on you...

7. Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington) in Training Day

The only thing more frightening than a bad cop is a bad cop responsible for others. When Alonzo (Denzel Washington) takes Jake (Ethan Hawke) out on his Training Day the day looks more like a trip into a nightmarish revisioning of The Wizard of Oz than a beat cop instructional tour. Some crimes seem easy to overlook (Alonzo's incessant drinking while driving) but others (like extortion or drug trafficking) are harder to overlook. And it's this play between the upholding of the law and its use that makes the situation between Alonzo and his pupil such a challenging one.
