A no-nonsense dramatic response to the LAPD Rampart scandals of the '90s.

Jack Mathews
New York Daily News

The machinations of the plot are so murky as to be not worth following.

Lewis Beale
Film Journal International

Dirty is a solid ride, and deserves recognition if only because it affords Gooding the chance to reaffirm his acting chops.

We get it. All of you guys watched the Tarantino movies and you watched the Peckinpah movies. Enough, give us something original.

New York Post

The only suspense is how long it's going to take for this movie to finally drag to an end.

Fisher goes a bit too over the top with a couple of conventions that I wish he'd rein in.

This isn't a film made by someone who knows anything about cops. It's a film made by someone who's seen a lot of cop movies.

As good as the leads and the supporting cast are, and as much action as gets packed into the film's relatively brief running time, none of it draws us in dramatically.

This picture of it is poppin' blanks at too many turns to be considered honest nor a reflection of the real deal.

The pieces are there, but the execution is glaringly lacking. The editing is erratic and often nonsensical, having the feel of a PCP ride. The plot has many… More

Really NOT bad at all, despite the fact that Cuba Gooding Jr. tries, but fails(greatly) to match Denzel's Oscar winning Training Day performance.
John Ballantine
I barely remember seeing the thing which isn't a great sign. I saw Wyclef Jean in concert a couple of years ago. I remember seeing that!
