Dark Blue

I'm a fan of Kurt Russell, what can I say? I've been a fan since I saw "Overboard". And then there's the great action flicks "Escape from NY" and later "LA", he's the perfect action star. Arnold Smarnold. Speaking of which, the "She'll be back" line in the Terminater 3 preview is so korny, it's not even laughable. Anyhoo, "Dark Blue". It's what I call 'action noir'. A little bit of action/adventure and a little bit of film noir. Hence the name. Ving Rhames and Brendan Gleesan are intimidating in their performances...Scott Speedman must be Ed Norton's twin brother, because they share so many expressions, it's uncanny! Overall, I liked this film. It has a nice story and a not-so-nice backdrop. For the past 7 years, I've tried to forget about people crushing other people's skulls with blocks of concrete. It's really sad what happened to a US city because of the mistreatment of one, of course, the one, was really symbolic of the entire black race, but it's just sad that people can lose control like that. This is a good movie, but not the action fodder for the toddlers.
