      Wenlei Ma News.com.au Detroit is vivid and it is demanding, designed to shake you out of complacency. Rated: 4/5 Nov 16, 2017 Full Review David Stratton The Australian The motel sequence is so suspenseful that it's a shame that what follows is so perfunctory. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 10, 2017 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald It's not an easy film to watch but Bigelow's control over every aspect ensures it's utterly convincing. Rated: 4/5 Nov 8, 2017 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson Detroit is a timely film with a relevancy that cannot and should not be ignored any longer. Rated: 4/5 Apr 7, 2024 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Detroit suggests that the self-destructive riots only resulted in further despair, but to not act in the face of such widespread racism would be almost inhuman. Indeed, there are no easy or cohesive answers or solutions in the film, nor in the real world. Rated: 3/4 Mar 22, 2022 Full Review Cory Woodroof Curnblog Indeed, Detroit is a jarring ride in a car with no brakes that will leave you rattled and in a haze once its over.

      Alec B Technically proficient, tense, and appropriately angry. That said something is lacking. I think perhaps the movie is a bit too long and unfocused. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Steve D I wish it would have focused more on reality. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/02/23 Full Review Kasey T JFC.... Eye opening, hard to watch, heartbreaking. A must watch. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/06/23 Full Review Gareth v A dark and disturbing yet moving look into the Detroit riots of 1967. John Boyega continues to build his impressive resume with another strong performance. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Yvonne T I like the film. Nice. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/07/23 Full Review Samir Love the crime story and great actor Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
