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.

As good as the leads and the supporting cast are, and as much action as gets packed into the film's relatively brief running time, none of it draws us in dramatically.

Cuba Gooding Jr. sheds the halo that has threated to strangle his career by playing a corrupt cop in a nasty little genre film set in Los Angeles.

| Original Score: 2.5/5

It makes Training Day seem like a film about good citizenship, but Dirty is also a luxury vehicle for two actors whose every appearance on screen is a boon.

Like the best pulp, though, it gets its hooks into you faster than you can start to wonder why you should possibly care about what happens to any of its despicable characters, and, before you know it, you've been pulled deep into its Dantean vision.

At the end of the antiheroes' ropes, at the end of writer-director Chris Fisher's genre exercise, guns have been drawn, blood has been spilled, cops have been thwarted from going straight, and nothing has changed.

[Director Fisher] appears fixated on Los Angeles as a nihilistic phantasmagoria.
