Detroit is a powerful tragedy, film may be too long, but the intense scenes makes it shocking to watch!!!

Rating: 4.5 Stars

What I Like:

-The direction of Kathryn Bigelow is at her finest, the way she created the riots and chaos, and that intense scene at the Algiers Motel was created beautifully
-The acting was also on point, from John Boyega as a security guard trying to make peace of everything to Will Poulter (and his crazy eyebrows) as the crooked racist cop really made this film an intense spectacle to watch
-The story is a powerful tragedy that can ruffle up people’s feathers while watching it, because the politics from back in the late 60’s still remain a true problem today, that is what makes it so powerful

The So So:

-Even though the acting was great, the character development was a little weak, instead they developed the setting more than their characters, with that said, it all meshed together perfectly to create that main intense scene that made this into a powerful epic

What I Didn’t Like:

-This film was two and a half hours, and by the end of it after the main intense scene, you started to feel the longevity of this film

Overall:

This may be the most powerful movie of this year. It shows a story that still relates to today in regards of police brutality and murder. That one intense scene was so powerful and tragic that may hit people close to home. I give credit to director Kathryn Bigelow for creating a powerful film, and putting everything together and hit us in the gut. She’s an expert at that, and why I appreciate her and this film!!!
