(mbc.net) Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) is a fresh police academy graduate eager to join the LAPD's narcotics division. Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington) is his mentor, an experienced, albeit corrupt cop who plays by his own rules.
On training day Hoyt witnesses Alonzo falsify search warrants, extort cash from suspects, and sample drugs immediately after confiscating them.Jake is disheartened by the short apprenticeship, constantly reminding himself that he joined the force to protect and serve, not pillage and plunder.
Training Day earned $104 million at the box office, more than twice its $45 million budget. The picture won an Oscar and two MTV Movie Awards.
