Atom User Reviews for Blindspotting
This was an intense, funny, and deeply moving look at some of the biggest social issues facing our country today from race to economic disparity and gentrification to gun violence. There are some tropes and plot contrivences that could have been the downfall of the film if the writing, cinematography, and acting hadn't been outstanding. It is the total package - funny, thoughtful, with moments that leave you waiting for the other shoe to drop.
This movie is 100% an absolute masterpiece that left me shaken to my core. It is equally as tense as it is hilarious and socially conscious in its representation and love for the Bay area
A must see for a kinder world
Best movie of the year. Will see it again! It is incredible, well-written and performed. Makes you think and challenges the status quo. Run don’t walk to this one!!
This is America.
This movie was well done and awesome!!!
Moving performances from a great cast but a bit of an uneven film in tone. However, it's a strong debut showing promise for future projects with all involved.
This movie was so excellent . It had a great cast a must see go out and see this movie you will laugh and cry a little
Wish I could’ve met the cast
Straight outa Oakland
The title is perfect for the whole theme of the movie. This is a very intense, eye-opening film. Even if you are not one of the most emphatic people out there, you will feel everything Collin, the main character feels. It keeps you on the edge of the seat at times, honestly rooting for an ex-con hiding a gun not to be caught by the police. I am not a film critic, but I can honestly say it is one of the best acting I have seen in a long time. It truly made me FEEL everything. Kudos to Daveed and Rafael!
It depicts how hard it is as a black man in this society trying to just live your life in peace. also the hatred we deal with from police and whites.
This movie was outstanding. The cast is amazing & the movie was made me laugh, cry, and had me at the edge of my seat. It is a true story of the police brutality, gentrification, and racism issues we still deal with in today’s society. Everyone should go see this movie
Smartest movie I’ve seen since Moonlight.
An awesome film. A must see for all Americans.
The dual portrait that Blindspotting offers is heady and dense and mighty compelling.
As led by Daveed Diggs’ impassioned, tormented performance, Blindspotting is hard to shake, despite its on-the-nose plot points and melodramatic flourishes.
Carlos Lopez Estrada’s debut feature brandishes brash exuberance and stilted storytelling tropes in roughly equal measure, yielding a result that stimulates just as it cheapens itself dramatically.
