Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Writer-director Ryan Coogler's [film is an] assured and evenhanded debut.
Fresh: The intimacy of debut writer-director Ryan Coogler's approach to the film and the no-frills, believably real quality of the main performances combine to drive the senselessness of Oscar's killing home with visceral impact.
Fresh: Michael B. Jordan is simply brilliant in his portrayal of Grant, whom Coogler presents as a generally happy, if complex and somewhat troubled young man.
Fresh: Coogler's realistic debut recreates Grant's final day with affection, refusing to cast him as either saint or sinner.
Omg! 👍👍👍👌 #thegreatest

Thank you iTunes
Thank you iTunes for bringing this very sad, and dramatic story to the masses by offering it as a .99 rental.
The movie was great and takes you through a roller coaster of emotions and leaves you contemplating deep realistic societal issues by the end. Oscar deserving performances and an oscar winning portrayal of the story from the point of view of someone who views oscar as a human and not just "another black thug."
