Some undeveloped aspects
Overall, Black And Blue is going to be the movie that will appeal to those that love a politically fervor movie with attitude and aggressive visualization of key events. It's got the emotional aspect to it, brought to life by the cast, setting, and suspenseful game of hot potato that is a key factor. For Drama lovers and crime lovers this is your bread and butter movie of the week so far, but for action lovers well hold your horses. The political component is the one you have to prepare for, because it is going to be the key factor that is stretched out, slow, and a little bloated. I'm not sure how people will respond to the painstakingly obvious issues and dialogue, the stereotypical roles and the portrayals of the cast. For me I would have liked better story, more developed aspects of the film, and certainly more excitement to help amp up the suspense. All in all though, the movie needs to find a little more balance and excitement before I can say it's worth the trip to the theater, so hold out for Netflix on this one if you can. With that said, my scores are:
Movie Overall: 5.0
