Storyline

Gang In Blue is based on the real life investigations of several US police forces for racism and corruption. This production focuses on one of these police forces where Michael Rhoades is a new recruit who discovers much to his horror, a band of little Hitlers known as the 'Phantoms'. They let Rhoades know almost straight away that he is not wanted there and when he discovers corruption is rife he finds he is the target of a vicious campaign to set him up.

Surprises All Round
17 March 2001 | by Dan-BowesSee all my reviews

The first time i watched this film i thought that it wouldn't be very good, but after the first few minutes I was surprised at the quality of acting and powerful scenes that it possessed, and the fact that it was based on real life investigations made it even more moving. I was also impressed with Mario Van Peebels' directing skills and also his acting had seemed to improve from earlier films as this story line was possibly something he had encountered (although,i hope, not as violent). The story line was a bit basic and could have had some extra twists in it (as i am a big fan of them) but despite this the film was a good watch and makes you think of the problem of racism and persecution through the world.
