So why does "Brooklyn's Finest" turn into such a bloody mess?

Well, there's the body count, for starters. Fuqua and first-time screenwriter Michael C. Martin — a New York City transit worker who grew up in Brooklyn — seem to think the solution to the city's problems is a dramatic reduction in population.

They kill off lots of people in nasty ways with the remorseless glee of a cruel boy torturing insects.

"Brooklyn's Finest" takes the principal flaw of Martin Scorsese's "The Departed" — "We don't have an ending, so let's shoot everybody in the head" — to heart with such frequency and savagery that the violence would almost be comical, if only it weren't so repellent.
