Check out the trailer for action-thriller Black and Blue, starring Naomie Harris, Tyrese Gibson and Frank Grillo.
Harris plays a rookie cop who finds herself facing both sides of the law when her body cam inadvertently captures dirty cops murdering a young drug dealer. The corrupt offers, led by Frank Grillo, give chase, pushing her to try and survive in a neighbourhood that doesn’t want anything to do with the police.
It’s a straightforward plot that kind of reminds of John Wick (particularly when the whole hood gets texted with news that there’s a price on her head) and there doesn’t look to be anything all-that exciting, but it could offer up some fun if the pace is kept furiously high and Harris is given enough to work with. Count us tentatively in, even if director Deon Taylor’s resume – Meet the Blacks, recent thriller The Intruder – doesn’t inspire much in the way of confidence. The script comes from Peter A. Dowling (Flightplan).
Black and Blue, also starring Reid Scott, Beau Knapp and Luke Cage‘s Mike Colter, hits US cinemas on October 25.
