Thrill is a movie that analyzes the thrill of violent acts, their effect on people, and how lives are changed. The four main characters (Day-Lewis, Penn, Nicholson, and Hanks,) all exhibit a fetish of a certain major crime (Murder, Rape, Assault, Theft, respectively). Sebastian (Penn) and Steven (Lewis) are two brothers who grew up together in New York. Steven is a hostile controller of Sebastian and promotes Sebastian’s stalking and raping of women and children so that he can murder them. Sebastian gets the thrill of the act of rape, but his fragile emotional state breaks him down between rapes. After Steven murders a victim, he cleans up the mess. Sebastian trusts his mentor Arnold Shaw (Nicholson) who discretely promotes Sebastian to rape so that Shaw can continue mentoring him and being in control. Throughout the film, Steven and Arnold will battle over control of Sebastian. These battles combined with Shaw’s devotion to Sebastian leads to his wife, Harriet (Streep), confronting him about their marriage, his love for Sebastian, and his need to lead him to rape. this leads to Shaw often assaulting his wife and keeping her at bay. After the movie opens with a rape/murder, Police Chief Sam Bailey (Sheen,) investigates the dead teenage girl and discovers evidence to put him on the trail. Because of the chain of these serial rape/murders, Bailey calls Detective Joe Knight (Hanks,) who is in the middle of robbing a wealthy home. Knight’s thrill is of robbery and then taking the case to pin it on criminals, thus keeping the money for himself. Bailey’s lead on the Patrick brothers leads Steven to want to go after his family. After tempting Sebastian with Bailey’s 12 year old daughter Shelly (Fanning), they rape and kill her. As Steven kills Shelly, Sebastian finds her older sister, Cassie’s room (Page), and becomes enamored. This leads to Shaw encouraging Sebastian to go after Cassie, but Steven wanting to move on to bigger and better victims. The death of Shelly has created an emotional disturbance for Sheen and his wife Jennifer (Hunt). Sebastian begins to stalk Cassie and her boyfriend Skip Fisher (Wood,). As Detective Knight is on this case, but upset about it, he robs Chief Bailey, stripping him of everything. This all cumulates with Shaw convincing Sebastian to finally go for his prize, Cassie and Skip. As Sebastian catches them and rapes them both together, a montage of the different characters cumulate. Steven finds Sebastian raping the couple, and kills all three of them. Shaw’s wife confronts him, is beaten until bloody, but pulls a gun on her husband and kills him. Knight takes his earnings and leaves town for Jamaica. Bailey hangs himself in his basement as his daughter is getting raped upstairs, leaving his wife with nothing. The film ends with Steven walking out of the house, unloading his gun, only to kill again.

Brothers, Sean Sullivan (Edward Norton) and Joshua Sullivan (Brad Pitt), reunite in Chicago for their father’s (Robert Duvall) funeral. This would be the first time in 5 years that they will see or talk to each other; since the day Joshua was caught having an affair with Sean’s the fiancée, Karen (Rashida Jones). We would later find out that Joshua and Karen married and had child, leaving Sean ignorant of the news.
After separate meetings with homicide detectives Martin Thompson (Don Cheadle) and William Pierce (Matt Damon), each brother grows suspicious of the others possible involvement in the murder of their father. And with Sean growing more and more jealous of seeing his brother living the life he was suppose to have, he begins to give the detectives more reason to suspect Joshua, an act he would later feel extreme guilty about. Pierce a childhood friend of the brothers, suspects more involvement from Sean due to his history of violence, petty crimes and strain relationship with his father.
Later in another meeting between the brothers, Joshua reveals to Sean that he is actually married to Karen. Though obviously upset by the news, Sean congratulates Joshua. But things do take turn for the worst when Sean is invited to Joshua’s house where he not only sees Karen for the first time in years, but also sees that he has a new baby niece. Visibly disturbed and distressed from seeing his brother having the life he was supposed to have, Sean leaves, fighting the urge to strike his brother.
We then see Sean standing outside of Joshua’s house. He notices it is empty with no lights or sounds, until he sees Karen’s silhouette in the bedroom window. With all the rage and jealousy he has pent the past few weeks, he finally snaps and breaks into the house and forces himself onto Karen. With the baby crying in the cradle next to the bed and Karen screaming in pain, Sean takes himself off and finds himself disgusted and shocked from what he has just done.
As the story progresses we see the brothers in a physical confrontation, leading to Sean to pull out a gun. Here, Sean in a moment of guilt admits to Joshua that he was the one who killed their father, but also reveals the reason. As kids we learn that Sean was constantly sexually abused and raped by their father, with Joshua being totally oblivious. There were times where Joshua was sound asleep at night, as his father gagged and abused Sean while in the same room.
(In a flashback we see Sean in his Father’s house the night of the murder, as he puts a pillow over his head(To muffle the shot) and shoots his him. )
Joshua, shaken and distressed by the news, reaches out for his brother and the gun , until we hear gun shot. We see Sean collapse, and Pierce standing behind him with a smoking gun.

Johnny Greenwood(There Will Be Blood)
Don't make fun of the story. I tried my best.
Denzel Washington - Joseph "Big Joe" Haynes
Kingpin in Black Harlem. Controls everything and anything that goes down in Harlem. Self Proclaimed entrepreneur but runs a car dealership. The Dealership is a front for smuggling drugs, stolen goods, people, etc. Since his father died, has been the head of the infamous Haynes family. Ruthless, almost tyrant-like with the power and respect he has. Damn near an untouchable. Has as wife and two sons. He was told by his father that he was his brother's keeper.
Forrest Whitaker - Det. Jared Haynes
Younger brother of Joseph Haynes. Although brought up the same way Joseph was, Jared took a different route in life. A route that was frowned upon in the community but smiled upon by his father. Has a very tough job being a cop and staying loyal to his family members which he so desperately tries to do. Most of the time he has to look the other way while even being a round his family members. Was also told by their father that he was his brother's keeper.
Gene Hackman - Det. Daniel Worthy
Long time partner of Jared Haynes. Some would call him a dirty cop. Another reason for Jared to look the other way. His tactics are considered crooked but he gets the job done. Doesn't take too well to Jared's family and neighborhood and expresses that with Jared many times.
Edward James Olmos - Don Antonio Camacho "El Jefe"
Equivalent to what Joseph Haynes and Haynes family is to black Harlem, he is to Spanish Harlem. Demands Power and Respect from everyone. Is the head of the Camacho family. Became very paranoid and extremely erratic after the death of his wife. He feels the death is no one's fault but his on as a product of what he's become. Has one son. For years, has lived in somewhat of a peace in Harlem but one street divides the Camacho's turf from the Hayne's turf and proves not enough to hold back the flames.
Morris Chestnut - Deion Haynes
Oldest son of Joseph Haynes and is well aware of his father's dealings. He's expected to assume the role that his father is in if his father is to die. Joseph puts pressure on Deion to me more like him. When in fact, Deion wants to me more like his Uncle Jared, which infuriates Joseph. What gets his father more riled up is when Deion decides to go off to the police academy instead of helping his father run the family business.
Jimmy Smits - Juan Carlos Camacho
Only son of Antonio Camacho. He's pissed because he was deemed unfit to lead his family after his father and was passed upon by his younger cousin. Equivalent to Fredo Corleone, of the Godfather series. He's widely unsure of himself, extremely disloyal, and an all around rat. He feels like the world is out to get him so he has to screw the world over, including his family.
Omar Epps - Joseph Haynes Jr.
Youngest son of Joseph Haynes. Wants to be in the limelight but is constantly overshadowed by his brother's accomplishments. Following in the footsteps of his father and desperately seeks his approval in everything that he does. Feels that his father is wasting so much time on trying to lead Deion, that he's getting forgotten about. Trigger happy hot head and because of this, it leads to the first big conflict of the movie.
Jay Hernandez - Ricardo Gutierrez
The nephew of Antonio Camacho that will assume the head of the family if something was to happen to El Jefe. Respected and known for doing the Camacho's dirty work for years. Ruthless like his uncle Antonio but will do it with a smile. Childhood friends with Joseph Haynes Jr., but their friendship is looked down upon.
Angela Bassett - Mary Jane Haynes
Wife of Joseph Sr. Strong and always has her husbands back for anything. Been to hell and back for Joseph Sr. and does it without asking questions.
Cliff Curtis - Franco Gutierrez
Brother of Ricardo and also a nephew to the Camachos. He was sent back to Puerto Rico due to a job he had to do for his uncle, leaving six men massacred in a parking lot. Doesn't talk much. Renowned for his killing skills. Loves his brother very much.
Summer of 1977. About 12:30 am. Childhood friends, Joseph Haynes Jr.(Epps) and Ricky Gutierrez(Hernandez) are walking home from a local bar. Even though they are told not to be friends, they keep their friendship alive by meeting every now and then to toss back a couple drinks. On their way home and masked gunmen slips out of a shadowed alley and shoots Ricky Gutierrez down and in cold blood. Joseph Jr. takes out his gun and fires at the gunmen, by this time he's high tailing down the road and the whole neighborhood starts to wake up. Everyone witnesses Joseph Jr. flee the scene with gun in hand and automatically assume it was him that did the shooting.
The next morning Joseph Jr. wakes up to his father, Joseph Sr. standing in the door way. He tells Joseph Jr that Ricky is dead and that everyone is saying that it was you. Junior explains to his father what had happen but his reassures him that nothing will happen to him as long as he runs the town. Meanwhile, there's a gathering at the Camacho home to mourn the loss of Ricky. Don Antonio is informed of who people think carried out the shooting. He gives a simple nod and whispers something into his son, Juan's ear.
Puerto Rico, Franco(Curtis) is on the phone with his cousin calling from New York. He hears the news and says he'll be on his way. He hangs up and then breaks down in tears on the dinner table. After a while, he gathers himself along with his belongings and catches the first thing smoking back to New York. He is received by his cousin Juan and uncle Antonio. After a short reunion, the revenge begins. Random killings of the Haynes' and Camacho's close associates sparks a two month-long period of bloodshed in Harlem. The marquee death comes when Franco kills Joseph Jr. This urges Deion Haynes(Chestnut) to quit the police academy and join his family.
While this whole thing is going on, Det. Jared Haynes(Whitaker) is trying to convince his brother to end the feud. Joseph challenges Jared's loyalty and manhood. This causes Jared to make distance away from the family. He vows to himself never to turn the other cheek for anybody. He starts learning the ways of his crooked partner, Worthy(Hackman). Jared goes on a bust spree busting all of his brother's associates' fronts and businesses. In turn dead policemen start turning up everywhere.
After Deion Haynes ends the bloodshed by killing Franco Gutierrez and nearly killing Juan. Juan has an emotional breakdown and confesses that he was the gunmen that killed Ricky, not Joseph Jr. in the warehouse that Don Antonio has to hide out in. Don Antonio begins to have an out of body experience reflecting on what's been caused by his unstable son's actions. How peaceful Harlem went up in flames due to power hunger and greed. After contemplating for some time Antonio decides to kill his only son to stop the violence that is going on. As Juan is kneeling down on the ground with Antonio pointing the gun to his head, Joseph Sr. walks into the warehouse with gun in hand. He points it up to Antonio as Antonio points his gun down on his son. He explains to Joseph what had happened and assured him everything will be normal again.
Joseph Sr. figures having both of them out of the picture is good for business. Meanwhile, after searching up and down Harlem for his brother, Jared enters the lone warehouse armed. Joseph Sr. tells Jared to leave but he refuses and orders everyone, him especially, to put their guns down. Jared is soon followed by his partner, Worthy. Worthy points his gun at Antonio and expresses his dislike towards the spanish people and spanish harlem in general. While his guard was down, Juan pulls a gun from his coat and shoots Worthy, Worth fires back killing Juan and gets shot again by Antonio. Joseph Sr. in turn lets off two bullets into the back of a turned Antonio. Then the stand off between Jared and Joseph begins.
Again Joseph questions Jared's manhood and loyalty. Jared answers back ordering his older brother to drop his weapon. When he refuses and even pulls back the hammer of his gun, pointing it right at Jared's head, Jared lets one off into Joseph's shoulder. Joseph falls back onto the ground and starts giving Jared the brothers keeper talk their father gave to them right before he died. As Jared's guard is let down, Joseph grips the gun in attempt to shoot his brother, but Jared is the quicker to the draw and puts one right in the head of Joseph. The film ends with Jared holding his brother's body in his arms in the lone warehouse.
