A frustrated man decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets one of his family's killers free. He targets not only the killer but also the district attorney and others involved in the deal.
A family's moral codes are tested when Ray Tierney investigates a case that reveals an incendiary police corruption scandal involving his own brother-in-law. For Ray, the truth is revelatory, a Pandora's Box that threatens to upend not only the Tierney legacy but the entire NYPD.
A cab driver finds himself the hostage of an engaging contract killer as he makes his rounds from hit to hit during one night in Los Angeles. He must find a way to save both himself and one last victim.
In a Los Angeles dominated by violent gangs and a corrupt LAPD Precinct, the dirty Officer Armando Sancho is haunted by his guilty since an innocent old man was accidentally killed in an operation with his also dirty partner Salim Adel. The Internal Affairs is pressing Sancho, who feels split between the loyalty to his mates and his conscience, and he has to make a statement at 6:00 PM. When his superiors Captain Spain and his Lieutenant assign the two cops for an operation dealing drugs apprehended by the police and stored as evidence with a powerful drug dealer, Sancho feels that something is wrong and they have been framed.

Cuba Gooding Jr. and Clifton Collins Jr. heading a cast that includes Keith David and Cole Hauser? What could go wrong?
Dirty follows Cuba and Clifton, playing dirty undercover cops that steal, harass white people, do drugs, and swear, yep, pretty much what Denzel did in Training Day. Keith David and Cole Hauser play their oblivious superiors.
This was such an obvious knockoff of Training Day...everything about this film breathed it. Cuba can't live up to the ironic class that Denzel had, and Clifton, while a very good actor, has nothing on Ethan Hawke.
The lines were horribly clichéd, the plot was aimless and difficult...it only gets 3 stars because I'm a fan of this cast, despite their horrible agents.
See Training Day-for the first time or again-before you see Dirty.
