This intense and engaging film authentically explores modern racial profiling and police violence in a way that is so in your face it is hard to ignore.
Ronnie Rowe Jr. delivers an exceptional performance as the title character Black Cop. He is bitter and discontented yet I felt myself drawn to his character and quietly cheering for him. When Black Cop is racially profiled off duty something in him snaps fueling a journey we are called to follow where he spends the day in the more privileged white community using excessive hostility and threats of physical violence. Sophia Walker is wonderful in the supporting role, her emotions are divided and she portrays that well.
The film examines multiple perspectives of the same issue, challenging the viewer to explore racial bias, police violence and their own thoughts and feelings in regards. I think the entire movie is audacious. The filmmaker entertains us with satire and profound drama that invites us to draw our own conclusions, whatever that may be.
I left this movie feeling like I had a responsibility to investigate my own racial literacy. This is a film that has the potential to birth many critical conversations and influence change making it extremely timely and relevant.
You will talk about this movie long after the credits have rolled.
A black police officer is pushed to the edge, taking out his frustrations on the privileged community he's sworn to protect.
