Black and Blue

Critics Consensus

Black and Blue is elevated by Naomie Harris' central performance, even if the end result suffers from a simplistic treatment of topical themes.

All Critics (86) | Top Critics (18) | Fresh (44) | Rotten (42)

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

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

    Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Strong performances by Naomie Harris and Tyrese Gibson aren't enough to save this predictable and sometimes maddeningly stupid shoot-'em-up.

    Oct 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.

    Oct 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.

    Oct 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.
