Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average It's a big-city Western where the good guys are actually bad and the bad guys are more complicated than they initially seem—a modern-day film noir in which a wrongly accused character tries to clear her name before it's too late. "Black and Blue” may seem familiar, but it's a solid version of a story you've heard before.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Below Average Black and Blue, hyped by Geoff Zanelli's pumping score, moves along without actually getting anywhere. Harris deserves better. So do audiences.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average ...a fun, if muddled, climax that upends some of the expectations set by the bulk of the film. While Black and Blue is much more comfortable dispatching the gangsters who are trying to kill West than the cops shown to be their moral equivalents, the intense showdown at Kingston Manor proves that the film's typical action-movie ethos of violent retribution can also extend to figures of authority.
