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
This is America.
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!!
Straight outa Oakland
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
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!
You will walk in the shoes of a black man in oakland and realize his fears.
It just hits reality!
The character development is as good as it gets. An intense film that simply doles not let you go.
Saw this movie mentioned on Vice News. It was great. Worth see!
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.
Great film, would watch it again and the film beautifully captures what goes on in an ex convicts heads and feelings even after being released from jail.
A movie that makes you reevaluate the world
If this doesn’t win Oscars, the Academy is cancelled.
This movie will stand out for it great writing.
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.
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.
An awesome film. A must see for all Americans.
Best movie to bring out a message! All the suspense brought out the to movie to be interesting!
Great & important film. Brought to you by geniuses. 100% recommend and will see again
Unlike anything else I’ve ever seen. Felt so real, there were points I couldn’t breathe.
This movie was amazing! Everyone should see this!
Simple story line but the ending could be a bit more out of the ordinary. It's pretty black mixing with races.
This story needed to be told. Congratulations to the cast and crew for an amazing production.
I did not enjoy this movie at all
Great writing and acting. Would definitely watch again!
This was definitely not promoted like it should have been because this was an awesome movie!
I’m in love
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.
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.
amazing and moving
Really good movie with a message! Must see!
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.
Best movie I've seen this year.
A great movie to watch!
Such a great movie!! Will see it again!
I enjoyed the movie. Everyone struggles. Everyone has to grow. Life is a journey. Some journeys are more enjoyable than others. It’s the way nature planned it.
This movie was so good left me speechless I got chills!
I liked the movie very much! I would like to see this turned into a series, the chemistry and characters were amazing.
This was a really good movie; kept you in suspense. The actors chosen for the main parts were a great choice. I'd recommend this.
Such a great, original, and creative movie. Can’t wait to get it on Blu-ray.
As led by Daveed Diggs’ impassioned, tormented performance, Blindspotting is hard to shake, despite its on-the-nose plot points and melodramatic flourishes.
In a stroke of combined wisdom and humility, rather than pretending to have the answers, Casal and Diggs are content to pose the questions, relying on their considerable wit and comedic charm to present such tricky topics in refreshingly engaging fashion.
