|We Own The Night
Theatrical release poster
We Own the Night is an American Crime Drama that is set in Brooklyn, New York City in the late 1980s. The story focuses on Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix) a night club owner (with business ties to the Russian Mob) and black sheep of a multi-generational family of NYPD officers. When his older detective brother Joe (Mark Wahlberg) and assistant police chief father Burt (Robert Duvall) are targeted and hit by the Russians Bobby is forced to decide which side he'll stand with. The title comes from the motto of the NYPD's controversial Street Crimes Unit, which disbanded in 2002 after thirty-one years of service.
The following weapons were used in the film We Own the Night:
Smith & Wesson Model 36

Smith & Wesson Model 60
Bobby (Joaquin Phoenix) receives his father's Smith & Wesson Model 60 from his older brother Joe (Mark Wahlberg) after he is sworn in. When the story takes place (1987-1989) the S&W Model 60 was authorized by the NYPD and officers could purchase it through the department's equipment bureau. NYPD officers are not issued their handguns. They purchase their handguns and therefore they own their own handguns.
