My biggest gripe about "Detroit" is that the screenplay fails to fully develop its four characters featured on the movie poster. Instead the intersection of Melvin Dismukes (John Boyega), Greene (Anthony Mackie), Larry Reed (Algee Smith) and Philip Krauss (Will Poulter) occurs with little background information to flesh out any of the characters. Despite this, John Boyega turns in a solid performance, displaying flashes of Sidney Poitier (think Virgil Tibbs from "In the Heat of the Night") and Denzel Washington. Will Poulter is convincing as the dastardly horrific, torturous police officer Philip Krauss.

Kathryn Bigelow's harrowing docudrama is a relentless and unnerving film that pulls no punches when recreating the Detroit riots of 1967. The film does take a while to build up to the frightening incident at the Algiers Motel during the violence where police officers terrorized the guests after a raid gone wrong. The cops' monstrous leader is played by Will Poulter while John Boyega plays a sensitive security guard trying to serve as a wedge between the guests and Poulter's wrath.

Detroit - Review

"I need you to survive the night".

This is not a thriller. This is a horror movie. The intensity almost killed me.

'Detroit' is an ice cold look into the past, which later comes to a sickening realization that some things don't go away. Racism is alive and well. Same thing with sexual assault.

It doesn't matter if this was directed by a white women from San Francisco; Kathryn Bigelow made one hell of a movie. Couldn't think of any other director to helm this kind of story than her. While not focusing too much on the usual guilt trip, just telling what happened in history. Everyone was a victim.

John Boyega was amazing in this. His reactions alone without any words tells a lot of what's going through the characters head. He tries really hard to stay calm and collectiv...
