      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      As an ordinary coming-of-age drama, Stonewall is merely dull and scattered -- but as an attempt to depict a pivotal moment in American history, it's offensively bad.

      Carson P I don't see many even knowing of this movies existence and it's probably emmerichs least popular movie but what I've heard from those who saw it i heard it being pretty offensive the dialogue sounds childish and bassically the event was turned into some coming of age story which could have been good considereding the last ones getting Oscar nominated like Belfast and Spielberg fabelmans but this as it's bordering around a real life event of a protest it's kind of not a good combination and the film is barely accurate except with showing the protest scene which the film shines and it has the looks of a good film that can be made for viewing as high drama art but doesn't get close to it and fails at least emmerich did midway which was much better and the main achievement for emmerich to do an awards glory film and earn cinemetic respectability this film on the other hand is not good and is just a missed opportunity C- Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/09/24 Full Review David B Far inferior to the 1995 film of the same name in every possible way. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/16/23 Full Review Angelo R Manages to "white wash" the roots. But the lead character's story kept my attention. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/31/23 Full Review Brad S Personally being a gay individual who actually had to go thru a lot if the same struggles and challenges growing up gay in Indiana not Kansas, I may not be a movie critic however I am someone who does not watch many movies. This being said I actually really enjoyed this movie a lot. Knowing that others faced the same issues and did what they had to do makes me feel proud of what everyone did at Stonewall. It is because of the courage and bravery of those stood up for what they felt was right that I am able to live my life gay and happy without the fear of being cast out or beaten for being me. This is a amazing movie and recommend it to everyone. It might be 2023 but there is obviously a lot of hate still in the hearts of many just look at all the terrible reviews. Watch this movie and you decide :-) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review georgan g The plot attempted to show all the bad experiences the LGBT community members went through before Stonewall. It did this with an easy way for straight viewers to feel empathy. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review steve d Not factual enough to satisfy but powerful at times.

      Leela Ginelle Bitch Media It feels like Emmerich couldn't help but make his Stonewall a mashup of My Own Private Idaho and Independence Day. Feb 9, 2021 Full Review Alison Willmore BuzzFeed News Stonewall is a movie about a pivotal moment in LGBT history as filtered through the perspective of a fictional hunk of Wonder Bread named Danny who steps off a bus from Indiana and right into a central role in the Christopher Street scene. Nov 10, 2015 Full Review Maya Stanton Entertainment Weekly The Stonewall Riots were a triumph for a marginalized community, but Emmerich fails to convey the significance of the event in any meaningful fashion. The subject matter deserves better, and so do we. Rated: D Sep 28, 2015 Full Review Ben Turner The Pink Lens Instead of showing us the real story, Emmerich thought his fictional character was was more interesting. I'd say that's pretty damn arrogant. Rated: 2/5 Sep 2, 2021 Full Review Andrew Galdi Movie Bitches In this movie, the density of failure was approaching Showgirls levels. Apr 29, 2020 Full Review Avaryl Halley Movie Bitches The worst part of the movie is the dialogue. Apr 29, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
