Critic Reviews for Black and Blue

All Critics (90) | Top Critics (19)

This is a film that pulls off the impressive trick of being gritty and cheesy at the same time.

Top Critic

This is just a cops-ploitation, scream-at-the-screen picture, but I had a lot of fun with it with an audience.

Strong performances by Naomie Harris and Tyrese Gibson aren't enough to save this predictable and sometimes maddeningly stupid shoot-'em-up.

October 25, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

[D]irector Deon Taylor ("The Intruder," "Traffik") keeps the action moving along at a swift enough pace to keep you on edge.

October 25, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Harris, eyes blazing, brings a humanity and an urgency that serve the story maybe more than it deserves: a performance above and beyond the call of duty.

October 25, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Noble intentions are up against dog-eared cliches and frustratingly, it's a battle that too often leads to us, the audience, losing.
