some flaws but still good
Rookie cop Alicia West (Naomie Harris) is returning to patrol her childhood New Orleans neighborhood. Her body camera records narcotics detective Terry Malone (Frank Grillo) executing his drug dealers to hide his drug deals before a coming wave of investigations. Malone and his police accomplices pursue West through the devastated neighborhood as they seek to eliminate the body camera. She finds help from reluctant local Mouse (Tyrese Gibson).
This has good potential. It has some deep flaws but it is still able to pull off a thrilling crime drama. First, modern communication is an overwhelming enemy of this movie. West should radio in her situation after the first two gun shots. Her radio should still work after Malone intercepts her transmissions. When she gets Mouse’s phone, she should be calling everyone and anyone. Couldn’t she call 911? The easiest solution would be a POS malfunctioning radio and Mouse not having a phone. Once somebody has cracked the body cam, it should be much more simpler to hand it over to a TV station than a police station. When West kills the gangsters, she should check the car. I’m assuming that the director missed a scene there. West is trying to hide and she should really change out of her police blues. Despite these annoying flaws, the movie still works with some good thrills.
Not as bad as the rating
Very interesting narrative about police and race relations; but because of how the movie was executed, it falls short. Ok writing, acting, and plot. The main character, Alicia West played by Naomi Harris, story was pretty good. At times, because of the directing, her acting wasn’t believable. Also, because of the spotty development of the secondary characters, it was hard to have any empathy towards them. In contrast, great use of background aka mise-en-scene, to deliver a message to the viewers that are watching. Lastly, I do like the overall message of the film which is that we all are people (especially black people and other people of color) and all we want is to be treated as such.
