From IMDb: “Black and Blue’ is an action thriller about a rookie cop (Naomie Harris) who inadvertently captures the murder of a young drug dealer on her body cam. After realizing that the murder was committed by corrupt cops, she teams up with the one person from her community who is willing to help her (Tyrese Gibson) as she tries to escape both the criminals out for revenge and the police who are desperate to destroy the incriminating footage.”

Poster Rating: C+ / C / D+ (5)

Review: (#1) There’s a solid effort here to create a dichotomy, but the elements are poorly blended together, creating something that looks too slipshod. (#2) A lot of commonplace elements here with a lot of blank space, none of which works together as well as the designer would like. (#3-#7) These character posters are dull and uninspiring.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: There are some interesting concepts at play in this trailer, but the generic structure and trajectory it takes makes it feel like it’s paying lip service to them rather than taking a hard look at them.
