Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - G. Allen Johnson
Sure, Black and Blue is a minor film, but it’s irresistible.
63
Slant Magazine - Pat Brown
The film's command of action defuses concerns about whether it offers a thorough social critique.
63
Movie Nation - Roger Moore
I don’t want to overssell Black and Blue. It doesn’t transcend its genre. But it doesn’t waste our time, modulates its chase with alternating brisk and slow pacing, hand-held camera sprints interrupted by bursts of violence and stops, every so often, at a moral crossroad.

Screen Daily - Tim Grierson
Although less convincing when it tries to say something meaningful about racism and police brutality, Black And Blue has sufficient pulp pleasures and a winning confidence in executing its modest ambitions.
50
The Hollywood Reporter - Keith Uhlich
There's a tight, tense thriller in all this. Unfortunately, director Deon Taylor and screenwriter Peter A. Dowling stretch things out to a logy 104 minutes. Too often, the suspense dissipates between action scenes when it should be consistent and relentless, even in the quietest moments.
