  • Dark Blue

    Do NOT go see Dark Blue! I went this evening and it was terrible...I didn't find one redeeming quality about it. It reminded me a bit of "Internal Affairs" but at least that one had a plot that was able to be followed. This film was disjointed and and frankly, just another slamfest on cops.
    The film is about the corrupt actions of a Sgt. played by Kurt Russel in the five days just before the verdict that was announced for the officers involved with the Rodney King incident.

    Don't bother....this one really sucked!

    Are you kidding? It was awesome! It had Kurt Russell in it for gods sake.

      I'd prefer it if you didn't converse with me directly.

      Thank you.

          No problem, Nite...I think I've made myself very clear on the matter.

          Anyways....take it from someone who has been on the street...it isn't a police-friendly movie and it will leave you feeling out-of-sorts. It was as enjoyable as chewing on aluminum foil.

            I think you should stop being a baby, G.

            As for the movie, haven't seen it yet, but I plan to.

                  My wife and I liked the movie. It wasn't exactly something that LAPD would want to use for publicity, but it wasn't exactly a load of BS either. The movie showed how within a huge police department, members of a small "elite" unit could think they are above the law and that the ends justify the means and how a downward spiral can start once the line is crossed. Of course, nothing like that has ever actually happened at LAPD. Despite that, it's a movie, and that's all I took it as.

                    I don't recall asking for your opinion. Believe me, that was the polite response.

                    Anyways, there are very few movies that I did not find something to like about...this made the short list. Of course, another is your favorite, CINY...

                      Great. Just what we need. Another arrogant judge who hates cops.

                        I don't hate CINY....and the other person isn't a cop.

                        But, I still like disagreeable Texans... [Wink]

                          If it's on the same level as Training Day, I'll pass and wait for it to be on cable.

                            I actually didn't mind Training Day, so that should tell you how rotten this film is....

                              I liked the brutality of it. From what I saw of LA, and So. Cali in general, it came across as realistic, at least from that perspective.

                              I didn't like the way it paints the black-white thing, or the way it suggests any time a cop assumes rank it's because they were crooked, a minority, easily manipulated, or slept their way there. I'm not naive enough to think that stuff doesn't go on, but most of the cops I've met were just people doing a job.

                              It occurs to me that movies are very good at stereotyping people. It seems like every time I see a cop in a movie, the person is doing something outside the law, either to get convictions or for money.
