color under grey sky

After watching "Training Day", the first feeling is actually chaos. It's not the film that's chaotic, the film is very good, and the story is clear and engaging, but it's me who's chaotic, and I'm stuck in a deep sense of language.
Maybe it's because I'm not used to growing up, of course, being in the world of "right" and "wrong" for too long also has a certain inhibitory effect, so when someone is pulled under the gray sky, everything is not as good as indoors. It was bright and bright under the fluorescent lamp. When asked, "What color?", it was as if he had eaten too much. Common sense was choked in his throat, and he burped, but he couldn't utter a complete word.

The laws of nature have maintained their vitality in the streets of Los Angeles for hundreds of millions of years. Now, when an incarnation of justice enters the jungle, trying to construct a new kind of continuity, should he incarnate as a sheep or a wolf?
Alonzo travels among drug dealers with ease, and even has his underground wife and children in the drug den. He used black money to open up joints and buy people's hearts, and easily obtained the indulgence of the top police officers and the information provided by drug dealers, so that he could be unimpeded anywhere, catch what he wants, let him let go, and also, solve him to be resolved. But as long as he needs it, he can betray anyone, whether it's a Los Angeles drug lord who has been drinking for ten years, or a fledgling policeman who has been with his ass for a day.
Jack is just the predecessor of Alonzo. He is passionate, impulsive, and hates evil. Facing the impact of Alonzo's design, temptation and values, he swayed on the moral ridge in a daze; finally, when his righteous actions saved himself over time, he realized To the irreconcilable difference between him and Alonzo. His perseverance stopped his depraved soul, won the respect of drug dealers, and finally sent Alonzo to a dead end.
The film does not say anything to the two protagonists, but only takes the audience into the real jungle. Alonzo deeply understands that the Angel of Justice has no way to escape in the jungle, and that only his wife and children will be left behind after the corpse, so he chooses to use his own way to save a safe life, and the star title that comes with it And rolling black money; on the contrary, Jack chose sacrifice, put himself and his family on the altar of justice, and defended the purity of soul with firm belief. Two people and two lives are equally real and vivid. The audience needs to think and make choices. What is right and wrong, or how can we understand it?

In this film, Denis Washington's performance is hearty and vivid, and the contradiction and complexity of Alonzo's character are portrayed to the core, and he deserves the Oscar for best actor.

    The story of that snail is really very predictable. Jack is the snail. He was injured by Alenzo as a rookie and turned into a snail-shaped shell, but he did not give up like a snail. In the end, Alonzo’s perfect plan fell short. This is only a principle. The snail crushed the seemingly invincible wolf with rogue-style perseverance, and gave us a shocking education!
