    We Own the Night was really good because of Joaquin Phoenix. He became the movie's scene stealer. He delivered a Worthy Oscar Performance, He compelled every scene. His acting in the movie was another great performance. He intensed the movie. I loved the way he brought the movie to his acting and He should've been nominated for his role of a son willing to make his life on the right path. I would recommend this movie only if you like Phoenix's work as a really good actor. The movie itself was entertaining, but The Departed was more entertaining and worth watching. This movie was worth watching because of Phoenix. Robert Duvall also delivered a great performance as Phoenix's Father, Eva Mendes was flawless. I loved the movie.
