Synopsis

Shades of Blue

Shades of Blue Sexy New York detective and single mother Harlee Santos fell in with a tight-knit group

of dirty cops, taking bribes and protection money that she uses to provide the best life for her honest,

talented daughter. But when she’s trapped by the FBI and forced to inform on her own “brothers,” she’ll

have to walk the fine line between love, loyalty, honor and betrayal, and try to keep it together for her daughter’s future.

Jennifer Lopez is really donning the moniker “Jenny from the Block”. Her acting works have gained

mixed reception and Shades of Blue will continue that tradition. The leading actors give a presentable

performance and the drama appears to be in working shape, however some of the police works are

following frigid formula of crime drama, not to mention a couple of angles are shady and unconvincing.

Shades of Blue

Female leads in cop series admittedly look like models, for example leads of Castle or Quantico,

which is not entirely a bad and might even be appealing, but it doesn’t enhance the reliability aspect of the series. What Jennifer brings is the occasional moments where her character is approachable. At these times she can shed the celebrity persona and delves into the character, although there’s still inconsistency in this regard.

Harlee Santos (Jennifer Lopez) is a single mother and corrupt cop who is also being chased by FBI. The character can be appealing as the movie plays out the family and camaraderie cards, but it often transitions into intentionally excessively independent woman stereotype or simply become too melodramatic. Fortunately, the supporting cast helps alleviate these few sloppy instances.
