  1. Creates a hellishly evil portrait of a police department in which every white cop is either a racist thug or an enabler, and every black cop a disgusted observer or crusading hero.
  2. Dark Blue proves again what a remarkable actor Denzel Washington is. Too bad he's not in it.
  3. The movie heads in a disastrous direction: namely, a police academy ceremony... This lets-wrap-this-thing-up moment sucks the life and the honesty out of an otherwise compelling portrait of tainted lawmen, tainted law.
  4. Imagine finding the will to get up every morning to do another day's work on this stale story tarted up with relevance.
