Storyline Heading
A police raid in Detroit in 1967 results in one of the largest RACE riots in United States history. The story is centred around the Algiers Motel incident, which occurred in Detroit, Michigan on July 25, 1967, during the racially charged 12th Street Riot.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Drama Thriller - This is a very brutal and harrowing historical drama with an ensemble cast that includes some familiar faces such as John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, and Will Poulter. Older adults are the target audience, primarily males. Constant language, violence, nudity, and very dark and serious subject matter make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Detroit, despite its flaws, is compelling and deeply unsettling. Its thriller and horror elements gain resonance because, at least to some degree, they're based on real events. Detroit captures attitudes and actions that can never be forgotten.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average "Detroit” is ultimately a confused film that has an ugliness reflected in its visual craft and narrative. ...a hollow spectacle, displaying rank racism and countless deaths that has nothing to say about race, the justice system, police brutality, or the city that gives it its title.

NY Post Full Review
Excellent Bigelow has an unparalleled capacity for depicting the way fear and anger and confusion distill into terrible, violent decisions. ...what astounds is how easily the story could be lifted out of its time period and into ours.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average Kathryn Bigelow hyper-realistically covers her ensemble's actions in the manner of a somber disaster film.
