Dirty: Directed by Chris Fisher. With Frank Alvarez, Clifton Collins Jr., Brittany Daniel, Keith David. Two gangbangers-turned-cops try and cover up a scandal within the LAPD.
“In a Los Angeles dominated by violent gangs and a corrupt LAPD Precinct, the dirty Officer Armando Sancho (Clifton Collins Jr.) is haunted by his guilty since an innocent old man was accidentally killed in an operation with his also dirty partner Salim Adel (Cuba Gooding Jr.). The Internal Affairs is pressing Sancho, who feels split between the loyalty to his mates and his conscience, and he has to make a statement at 6:00 PM. When his superiors Captain Spain (Keith David) and his Lieutenant (Cole Hauser) assign the two cops for an operation dealing drugs apprehended by the police and stored as evidence with a powerful drug dealer, Sancho feels that something is wrong and they have been framed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Dirtyu0026quot; has a promising beginning, with the chain of thoughts of Officer Sancho about corruption (u0026quot;With power came responsibility; with responsibility came opportunity; with opportunity came corruption, a plague where everybody gets sicku0026quot;). His dramatic feelings, haunted by the ghost of an innocent man and feeling awful as a finger-pointing rat, give the sensation that Sancho is a rich contradictory character to be developed. However, the story is pointless, showing a hopeless society in a city dominated by gangs, lost youth and corrupt police force, but without any message in the end. I had never expected the redemption of any character, but I found the unpleasant plot a caricature and very manipulative view of the LAPD. My vote is five.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTitle (Brazil): u0026quot;Dirty O Poder da Corrupçãou0026quot; (u0026quot;Dirty The Power of the Corruptionu0026quot;)”
