It has both ideas and a point of view. But the ideas are far from new, and the point of view is blatantly knee-jerk.

Credit writer/director Burnett for having the courage of his convictions, even if the outcome is a film that a lot of people will see as clichéd and stereotyped.

Ambition is something to respect in an artist, but Charles Burnett's police-corruption drama The Glass Shield is such a maladroit piece of filmmaking that its weighty themes and sclerotic tangle of a plot end up making it a trial to sit through.

The movie feels sketchy, as if Burnett chopped the flesh off his screenplay and left us only the bare bones.
