Black and Blue (2019) 15
Action, Crime, Drama.
A rookie New Orleans police officer is forced to balance her identity as a black woman after she witnesses two corrupt cops committing murder.
A great deal of negativity and criticism early doors for this but newer watcher reviews I have seen appear to appreciate it as I did.
A storyline very similar to the gritty Denzel Washington thriller "Training Day", this movie never really takes a breath.
Yes, there are bad cops, the opening scene has our female hero manhandled by white cops because she's a black woman in a posh area. Luckily she has her own cop badge on her and apologies all round. Well, that's ok then.
Anyway, things go from bad to worse as she flees for her life, not knowing who to trust.
Nonstop powerful, some good characters make this a good high powered watch.
