Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
In a city ravaged by violent crime, the police department's anti-gang task force uses any means at its disposal to get the bad guys off the streets, with cops often acting as judge, jury and executioner. As the unit's self-justifying brutality and corruption spiral further out of control, gang member-turned-cop Armando Sancho begins to question the life he and his partner Salim Adel have chosen. So when Internal Affairs agents investigating the division's abuses offer him a deal to come clean about the unit's misdeeds, Sancho must decide whether to heed his conscience or his loyalty to his fellow officers. On the hot, smoggy day Salim and Sancho are scheduled to testify to IA, the two rogue cops agree to run a lucrative, illegal operation for the station's top brass.

Critic Reviews for Dirty
A no-nonsense dramatic response to the LAPD Rampart scandals of the '90s.
We get it. All of you guys watched the Tarantino movies and you watched the Peckinpah movies. Enough, give us something original.
This isn't a film made by someone who knows anything about cops. It's a film made by someone who's seen a lot of cop movies.
The machinations of the plot are so murky as to be not worth following.
The only suspense is how long it's going to take for this movie to finally drag to an end.
Audience Reviews for Dirty
This movie is worth watching, a time or two. But really if your looking for a great movie of this nature just watch "Training Day". This was much like that, with a lot less planning to make it truly good.
This is no Training day, it's dark, violent noir that fails to deliver in it's story. It's highly stylized but very dull with a waste of a good cast.
Really NOT bad at all, despite the fact that Cuba Gooding Jr. tries, but fails(greatly) to match Denzel's Oscar winning Training Day performance.
