Naomie Harris plays rookie police officer who stumbles upon some dirty cops and happens to record their illegal actions on her body cam. The rest of the movie scrambles her all over her former gang-ridden neighborhood trying to stay alive (with the help of an old friend played by Tyrese Gibson). Although there’s not much subtle about the script’s messages and there are some flaws in the logic, director Deon Taylor has created a tense drama with more suspense coming from the chase and interactions than from violence (although there is some of that). Harris and the rest of the cast do a good job of helping make what could have been a trite corrupt cop flick into a dark and compelling drama.

 

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
