LA Confidential is one of them early Russel Crowe films where he was actually good.He plays the hard hitting cop with a penchant for avenging beaten women.Guy Pearce plays the by-the-book up and comer cop.But by the end of the film we see he’s changed and becomes more like Crowe.LA Confidential is a good old film,first time i’ve seen it,not much at fault here:good cast,engaging story,well shot,few topless scenes in it.The only thing i fault in it,and this is pretty minor,is farmer Hogetts bad northern Iish accent and his adding of ‘boyo’ to every second sentence.Beside that it’s a good film you could sit down and watch on a Friday night with your parents.
