really. really. really. good.

touching movie.

All I could think about is how I have some friends on facebook who instantly run to #BlueLivesMatter and defend the police officers no matter what. I am not downplaying the severity of their job but as this movie paints in a way I havent felt before... It has a slow start but once it gets going it felt like it was over in a few minutes.

This movie was like... one of the first movies to have ever made me feel physically ill. The middle of it is just so uncomfortably evil I couldn't stand it.

Really great acting. Terrible movie. was awesome. would recommend.

Is this one of those movies you love but everyone else hates... i.e. World of Warcraft?

Detroit = 86%
Warcraft = 28%
