  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

    This is back before Denzel started phoning it in. I didn't much care for the choices in cinematography, but the story and the acting is great. What appears to be a fairly simple case quickly turns deadly. He thought he could outsmart them. When he couldn't, he had to call Mouse. Mouse is the master of chaos. He's both a help and a hindrance. They should have made more, but they couldn't. America is racist.

  2. Log Lady's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

    Solid performances all round and a meticulously created time period, but Franklin's fidelity to the rather mediocre source novel ultimately works against the film. Not bad by any means, but not as tense and hard-punching as I usually like my neo-noirs.

  3. Cartaphilus's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

    Excellent Film. Great neo-noir with all the good elements and some extra like the amazing character of Mouse or the Man with the Trees!

  4. killgill's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

    i wish i hadn;t known jennifer beals going into this movie because it spoiled the reveal towards the end

  5. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

    "The Human Stain" could be an alternative title for this. Ezikeal "Easy" Rawlins is in financial mess. He lost his job & can't pay the house-loan. Although it looks to him that something is wrong, he agrees to find a missing woman & get paid for it. Suddenly he finds himself in difficulties of vital significance. 39 y/o Denzel Washington acting very fine, interesting mysterious story; very much entertaining. Solid.

  6. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

  7. film_lies101's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

  8. Howard Orr's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

    Beautifully directed and acted noir, with a heartfelt and immersive sense of time and place. Cheadle, Washington and Sizemore all give excellent turns, but crazily neglected director Carl Franklin deserves far more credit for this film than many critics give him.

  9. Pedro's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

  11. Daniela's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

  12. HEDONIST's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

    Indeed, this is an exellent neo-noir. Perhaps one of Denzel's best performances IMHO.

  13. wizdom's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

    Mouse is one of the most underrated characters of all time. Cheadle showed his true acting abilities.

  14. Dave's rating of the film Devil in a Blue Dress

    Don Cheadle really is great here and this is a very solid neo-noir.
