More bland BLM propaganda film from leftists...
4 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Long drawn out retread of some dodgy and quite possibly untrue incidents during the Detroit riots. They even had to put in a disclaimer at the end that not all that was portrayed in the movie was true - so why bother?

There just was not enough of an interesting story to make this into a movie but as another user suggested it was probably the Lefty director Bigelows attempt at trying to grab herself another Oscar with another leftist, BLM pandering w@nkfest!

Bored me and my brother to tears as nothing really interesting happens , the guy who kept singing was utterly awful and made us cringe - as for the end sequence lol I still haven't stopped laughing. If it was supposed to give support to the BLM crowd , well it didn't , it actually made black people look pretty bad in destroying their own town and stabbing each other in the back - Well done Kathryn you assassinated the black myth of it all being the white mans fault!

No story , no plot , awful music , boring and far too long for a movie I was aching for the end but due to my OCD had to watch it to the end - Damn Ocd LOL

Save yourself the effort and avoid this one its almost as bad as "The Bad Batch" - another pretentious arty farty directors attempt to wow the so called movie intellegentsia audience and grab an Oscar.
