Haters gonna hate
2 November 2019 | by jmdillehaySee all my reviews

Solid movie. It was very tense and entertaining. I get the feeling that the super low ratings are from people that hate the message. I mean seriously...a 1/10? Thats silly. I guess the low rating people are either unaware or turn a blind eye to police brutality and corruption. Do a little research and you will find that the NOPD has a long history of corruption. I rate it a 7/10 based on the movie outside of the message. I would not be surprised if the same people that hated black and blue loved training day because the lead is a corrupt cop black man. This is not a bad film at all.
