Storyline

Gang In Blue is based on the real life investigations of several US police forces for racism and corruption. This production focuses on one of these police forces where Michael Rhoades is a new recruit who discovers much to his horror, a band of little Hitlers known as the 'Phantoms'. They let Rhoades know almost straight away that he is not wanted there and when he discovers corruption is rife he finds he is the target of a vicious campaign to set him up.

An unseen gem ........ highly recommended ..................
13 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Gang in Blue" has extraordinary entertainment value, yet is practically unknown. Mario Van Peebles is believable as the minority cop going up against "The Phantoms", a white supremacist group within the department. He is aided by an undercover F.B.I. agent, Josh Brolin. They are both involved with a female F.B.I. agent, played by Cynda Williams. It should be noted that Ms. Williams acting skills are not very polished, and her scenes unfortunately grind the action to a halt. Great supporting acting is another strong point, with Stephen Lang and the late great J.T. Walsh standouts. With out of control police vigilantes, strong dialog, plenty of violence, and mostly fine acting, this is an unknown gem, and highly recommended. - MERK
