Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Bigelow doesn't have as original, as distinctive, as reflective a sense of cinematic drama as the extraordinary subject matter of "Detroit" requires.
Fresh: Reteaming Bigelow and Boal, Detroit lacks the clarity of their previous collaborations but the ambitious period drama maintains their power to disturb, and question what it is to be an American.
Fresh: Director Kathryn Bigelow has continued on from her great work in The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty and created an intense drama that feels documentary-like in nature.
Fresh: Detroit is vivid and it is demanding, designed to shake you out of complacency.
Amazing especially Malcolm d Kelly
How do i order this movie??? Any knows please let me know
Not Kate Bigelow’s and Mark Boal’s Better Films
I couldn’t help but to see the black characters are not too much more than poorly developed props, in a sacrifice at the alter of racial injustice in America. I felt like 80% of the film was just various aspects of the rioting and lawlessness, and never fully developing the underlying causes except for some prologue text scroll. Really felt like a disservice to a historical and pivotal moment in American race relations, and Bigelow’s and Boal’s stellar production and director abilities.
