Set in the Los Angeles Police Department in April 1992, Dark Blue is a dramatic thriller that takes place just days before the acquittal of four white officers in the beating of black motorist Rodney King and the subsequent L.A. riots. In this racially-charged climate,the LAPD's elite Special Investigations Squad (SIS) is assigned a high-profile quadruple homicide. As they work the case, veteran detective Eldon Perry, known for his tough street tactics and fiery temper, tutors SIS rookie Bobby Keough in the grim realities of police intimidation and corruption. Meanwhile, Assistant Chief Holland, the only man in the department willing to stand up to the SIS, threatens to end Perry's brand of singlehanded "justice" on the Los Angeles streets. While navigating through the tumultuous neighborhoods of South Central L.A., Perry and Keough must track down cold-blooded killers and face their own demons, which prove to be more ruthless than the criminals they pursue.Written by

Det. Sgt. Eldon Perry Jr.:
That's Eldon Perry the third. Right there next to his mom.
Det. Sgt. Eldon Perry Jr.:
He will never be a cop - he hates cops. I love him and I... I thank God that I was just too busy pass on to him what my granddaddy passed on to my daddy and my daddy passed on to me - And I was raised up to be a gunfighter by a family of gunfighters.

About halfway through this movie, I realized I hadn't blinked once. That's when I knew that I was watching a really good film. Kurt Russell is no slouch of an actor. He was riveting. This was a well crafted cop flick where everyone seems to have dirt on someone else, and meanwhile, there are crimes being committed, and L.A. is about to erupt in rioting.
The great thing about this flick is that it doesn't try to be more than it is. Which is just a very entertaining, suspenseful cop movie.
Well worth a watch.
