DARK BLUE MOVIE

Customer Reviews

Top Customer Reviews

Format: DVD
When I hired this film out I wasn't sure what to expect, i'd heard mixed reviews about it. It was entirley Kurt Russell that attracted me to this film. In my opinion he is a fine actor deserving of more credit. This film is basically about a bad cop (Kurt Russell) who leads a rookie cop down the wrong path into corruption. He seems quite willing to kill a bad guy with no trial and no paperwork. Other people higher in the ranks push him into doing some dodgy things which in the end wreck his life. It will take you a while to get to know the characters. To begin with they seem unlikeable and one dimensional, but as the film progresses you see that the two leading characters do indeed have a concious. Kurt gradually throughout the film shows that the character isn't quite what you thought he was. He knows what he's doing is wrong and with the unfortunate incident at the end realises he has had enough and decides to do the right thing.
Overall this is a very good film. The story is very similair to Training Day but in my opinion Kurt's performance is better. His acting is superb. He manages to make the climax emotional but doesn't over act at any point in the film. His character is completely beleivable. I also liked the rest of the cast. Ving Rhames was a great choice for the role as deputy chief. Scott Speedman also done a great job as Kurt's partner.

This film follows the fortunes of a pair of 'dirty' cops.
Both cops on the surface appear to be the sort of good looking, maverick, gung-ho cops we like to see in movies. This is not a 'Lethal weapon' movie. Its a gritty down to earth cops tale.

The cops have apparently drifted into a path of conduct where a certain level of institutional corruption appears to be accepted and tolerated. They don't try to profit from events themselves but are guilty of bending the rules to satisfy their superiors orders. This involves the far worse crimes of framing and murder.
The two cops very similar to the Russell Crowe character in 'L.A. Confidential'. They are uncomfortable with the morality of what they are doing but accept it as the way it has always been. You can't but help want them to come out on top but you also want them to redeem themselves or turn their backs on the corruption.
The events take place in L.A. just before and during the riots triggered by the real life equital of a group of cops who were filmed beating a black suspect in the early 90's. These events add an extra level of credibility to the film.
The film is a little gem in that I had no previous conceptions about it beforehand. It has received little or no publicity and hype. It's therefore a film you can watch without having any idea how it will end.
It is well acted and well plotted. There have been quite a few corrupt Cop films recently but with the exception of 'L.A. Confidential', I would class this as one of the best. The story is clear and well executed but conventional. It gets the message across without going to seedy or confusing like the 'Bad Lieutenant' or 'Training Day'.

Always been a fan of Kurt Russell's since 1982s The Thing and here he really proves his acting chops. A good film with some great moments. Ving Rhames is wonderful. It's a film that deserves to be seen.

By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 May 2011
Format: DVD
Dark Blue is directed by Ron Shelton and written by David Ayer from a story by James Ellroy. It stars Kurt Russell, Scott Speedman, Michael Michele, Brendan Gleeson and Ving Rhames. Story is set in the run up to the Rodney King ignited riots in Los Angeles. LAPD officer Eldon Perry (Russell) is as tough as they come, he believes that it's ok to bend the rules if it means putting a bad guy away. But bending rules leaves a trail, a trail that leads to more corrupt cops than himself. So as he and his fresh faced partner Bobby Keough (Speedman) continue to come under intense suspicion from Assistant Chief Arthur Holland (Rhames), Perry's life is suddenly at risk; just as the city is about to explode.

It's been said many times before, so I'll get it out of the way now. Dark Blue is very similar to Training Day (2001), the dirty cop based movie that bagged Denzel Washington another Oscar. What is forgotten or not known, is that Dark Blue was shot before Training Day. Written by the same writer, Ayer, Dark Blue sat on the shelf for nearly three years at studio HQ whilst the suits wondered what to do with the film. Of course, dirty cop film's have been many over the years, but both this and Denzel's movie are from the upper echelon's of the crime sub-genre, it wouldn't have hurt to have had two similar film's out in a short space of time, how many times have we seen it happen before? What it amounts to in the grand scheme of things for Dark Blue, is that it's unfairly seen as the inferior copy of Training Day. Wrong, because Dark Blue is the better movie.

Opening with the infamous camcorder footage of white coppers beating the tar out of motorist Rodney King, Dark Blue sets a gritty tone from the off.
