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

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.

Amazing chemistry and performances from the two leads. Thought provoking yes, but also funny, challenging, poignant, and oh so timely. Not quite what you'd expect. Shades of Shameless, Do The Right Thing, and Friday. Highly recommended.

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!

The movie had a strong message and had the potential to have an even stronger message. I just feel the Director's were not consistent in their delivery of that message consistent in the delivery of their message and left out all of the comedy.

This film captured the heart of a message that's been seen as some sort of rascist propoganda when shared by followers of the #Blacklivesmatter movement. It manages to do so in a very poignant, yet occasionally hilarious manner. It's so refreshing to see something so entertaining and intensely thought provoking all in one originally creative package. This film checks all the boxes.

Blindspotting needed more promotion. this movie speaks levels on police brutality in the US through the use of rap and spoken word. very powerful scenes too. deff watch this to learn a little more about the black experience in the US!!!

If you walk out of this feeling uncomfortable, horrified, and hopeful, you kept your eyes closed during the entire movie. Not since Affleck/Damon have two friends collaborated and hand in a tour de force performance as did Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal. Best picture of the year!

Although I liked the story behind the movie and understand the point they were trying to get across. I didn't like the delivery, it could have been much better. The rapping through out the movie to me, wasn't relevant and sometimes it really didn't make sense.

Both the lead and supporting actors had great chemistry on screen, and really played their roles. It was an emotional storyline that takes you through the depth of trauma convicts experience as people of color. Definitely a must see, that deserves an award.

The dual portrait that Blindspotting offers is heady and dense and mighty compelling.

Metacritic review by Inkoo Kang

As led by Daveed Diggs’ impassioned, tormented performance, Blindspotting is hard to shake, despite its on-the-nose plot points and melodramatic flourishes.

Metacritic review by Tim Grierson

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.
