Ejiofor dons his American accent for his role of Det. Mitchell, who is partnered up with Denzel Washington's Det. Frazier. They get some nice scenes together, and one wonders if they're chemistry here was the reason Ridley Scott would pair them up again in the following year's American Gangster (which will be next month's subject). But for now let's just watch Ejiofor put aside the Bard for some good old American slang.
Det. Mitchell: "Hey Keith, let me see your shoe."
Det. Frazier: "What?"
Det. Mitchell: "Lemme see your shoe."
Det. Frazier: "Why?"
Det. Mitchell: "'Cause I have never seen anyone put their foot that far up a guy's ass."
