I see dumb people.

Harsh Times (2005)
Chosen from a list of DVDs Victoria Charvill was getting rid of.

Mostly well played (Rodriguez is especially good and J.K. Simmons is always fun) but grimly familiar.
It's ending is telegraphed to anyone who has seen Carlito's Way but the digressions it takes getting there are sometimes interesting (Bale starts to get recruited for Homeland Security who are quite happy he failed the LAPD's psych test) but when it falls back on the gangbanger and homelife cliches it bores.
