      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A work of mournful maturity that sacrifices little of its director's signature energy, Clockers is an admittedly flawed drama with a powerfully urgent message.

      Manohla Dargis Spin For all its flash and agitated rhythms, Clockers has the thoughtful down time that allows actors to act and the narrative to hold its course. Dec 27, 2022 Full Review Juan M. Mendez New York Daily News With Clockers, director Spike Lee achieves his best work so far. Rated: 4/4 Aug 18, 2021 Full Review Janet Maslin New York Times A story told with mournful, epic vision that rises high above its grim setting. Apr 9, 2020 Full Review Todd James Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Alberta) A tough and thoughtful movie from Spike Lee. Rated: 3/5 Mar 29, 2024 Full Review Sean Burns WBUR’s Arts & Culture Spike Lee’s most sorrowful film. It’s a devastating depiction of a community poisoning itself. Aug 20, 2023 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut Clockers was years ahead of its time. It’s a visceral crime film that gives us a powerful look at the urban drug trade and the bleak despair of escaping your circumstances while exploring race relations between the police and the community they serve.

      Alec B The ending at first glance might seen out of place, but since Lee's focus here is violence and dehumanization one can understand the desire to find an escape route. As is typical to his work the characters are sublimely realized with even the worst of the worst coming across as real human beings. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/24 Full Review Nol P I stumbled upon the very ending by fluke only and wow was the last song so bad!, so weak! So to that I will not be watching this film! I am not ignorant, I just truly believe in powerful songs to keep a movie strong overall! Some song choices in film ruin movies and this was one of them! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Steve D It isn't exactly my taste but the great Spike Lee makes it engaging. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Andre G Thought this movie would've been better. Pretty boring not much action or anything to keep you interested. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/08/23 Full Review Audience Member The ending at first glance might seen out of place, but since Lee's focus here is violence and dehumanization one can understand the desire to find an escape route.
