Performance

Not since Tombstone

by Doug on 11/29/2003

The best performance by Russel since Tombstone! He's back as a world class actor... This movie grabs you and holds you to the end. Truly a movie worth two hours of your time...

Review Dark Blue is not a great movie, but it has moments that go off the meter and find visceral impact. The characters driving through the riot-torn streets of Los Angeles provide some of them, and the savage, self-hating irony of Russell's late dialogue provides the rest. It is a clanging coincidence that the LAPD would be indicted just at the moment it was being exonerated, but then that's what the movies are for, sometimes: To provide the outcomes that history overlooked.

Review Dark Blue, a brooding, ambitious film about the struggle for the soul of an elite Los Angeles cop, has to struggle with its own soul as well. Sensitively directed by Ron Shelton and helped by what just might be the best performance of Kurt Russell's career, Dark Blue is as interesting and successful as it can be within its limits, but those limits make this a more generic film than its makers intended.

ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review For Ron Shelton, who is best known for his sports-themed movies (like Bull Durham, Cobb, and Tin Cup , to name a few), this represents an opportunity to break new ground. Nevertheless, the film would not have been as successful without the performance of Kurt Russell. Russell's approach to the role combines combustible rage, calculated cynicism, and a deeply buried core of humanity striving for redemption. As depicted by Russell, Eldon is never an out-and-out villain. There are nuances of warped, wounded nobility buried under the brittle exterior. This represents one of the young year's most memorable acting turns. Russell is the reason to go to the theater. He will continue to hold your attention when things around him--like the storyline--lose steam and credibility.
