The 2005 action, crime, and drama film Dirty starring Cuba Gooding Jr may not be the most popular and latest film out there, but it definitely is a movie worth watching. The film may have received only a 5.5 out of 10 from critics, but it still happens to be such a great film that many viewers enjoyed. The crime solving film had great acting from all the stars, and was said to be one of Cuba's greatest performances because of his superb deliverance in his character. The film is quite hard edged and follows the story of an Officer named Armando Sancho, as well as a former gang member of Mal Creado. They are both forced to either choose from their loyalty or conscience. While they are recruited to an anti gang undercover unit from the LAPD, Sancho then brings his many street smarts to the force of which he was sworn to protect. Along with his partner Mr. Salim Adel played by Cuba Gooding Jr., and the both of them patrol the streets of L.A in the only way they know how. However, there really is nothing more dangerous than two gangsters with badges. When the two of them come under, only one are able to come out alive. The film is perfect for people that like crime, action, and a bit of drama, as it happens to offer all of the above. It isn't something that focuses on a single genre. The film however isn't for everyone, as the reviews it received were equally negative and positive. Though despite the negative critics, there is still plenty of people that were satisfied with the overall film. The story and plot were crafted well, and the director was easily able to make the story come alive in a wonderful way. Some of the actors in the film were actually beginning actors, as this film was their first jobs. However, no one had any idea they were just beginning actors, as they did such a superb job. The film will really make you continuously wondering and wanting more. It has a great story that is very unique among the many films out in the same movie genre. There are so many films nowadays that involve all only car chasing and bombs without much mystery in it, but this film involves enough action, yet still sustains such an outstanding story and a great score behind it. This film will definitely make viewers thinking throughout every single scene, and will continuously make you want more as the story progresses and continues. Unfortunately, there is no part 2 to the film, but it definitely did great justice and most likely challenged Gooding's acting abilities.
