"Black and Blue" is a fast-paced action thriller about a rookie cop (Naomie Harris) who inadvertently captures the murder of a young drug dealer on her body cam. After realizing that the murder was committed by corrupt cops, she teams up with the one person from her community who is willing to help her (Tyrese Gibson) as she tries to escape both the criminals out for revenge and the police who are desperate to destroy the incriminating footage.
The plot-line here is familiar with vicious drug gangs and corrupt cops. However, it is extremely well done. The tension ratchets up until it is impossible to see a way out. It is good to see Naomie Harris in a leading role - she plays an honourable, vulnerable yet determined cop. The supporting cast are good too. A worthy thriller.
