Atom User Reviews for White Boy Rick
It was an okay movie. Not as hype as it seemed to be.
was a great movie. definitely a best so far of the season
I m was born in Detroit lived there most of my life! White Boy Rick brought back memories! I hope this film can change and save some young lives.
This movie was everything and nothing that I expected!! It was really really good! Great cast and acting too!
Deep emotional movie that evokes human nature.
Best film of 2018
Amazing cast! McConaughey's acting is off the charts! Lots of surprises! It grabs your heartstrings & pulls you in!
can't believe how the government treats people
We don’t glorify rats he shouldn’t have ratted b
It’s an okay movie!
true,sad,story of the reckless,realistic,polital world we live in today
could have added more
It was a fine movie. The cast was phenomenal and the movie did a good job of developing the characters. It felt a little slow especially the last third of the movie.
bad kid acting. Matthew carried the film but it took 4ever to GET TO IT!
Not exciting, pretty boring story
Well acted, well directed. Great screenplay!
Left ya in a somber mood. Decent movie. Loved seeing the 80’s attire and scenes.
wow what a movie. defiantly proked a lot of thought
previews amped it up way more then what i expected
Super #Dope film. The fact that it is a true story brings out the movie overall. Something to see. Enjoy!
Aight..just another life story in this American Dream
I’ve watched White Boy Rick two days in a row........loved it!
starts slow but really gets good at the end
Plot moved slowly. The fast paced trailer was deceiving. But good overall, would recommend you watch.
It was funny and I didn’t mind the erratic pace but the ending ruined it for me. I will not have a pity party for a kid who actively committed crimes and built a drug network and had to serve serious time once caught when there are TONS of real life stories of INNOCENT PEOPLE who did just as much time for crimes they did not commit.
Just a heart wrenching tale of a kid that got used by a corrupt justice system and disregarded and hid away for thirty plus years. Sheds light on corruption in our justice system and just hurts to know the injustice done to this once bright eyed kid
Loved it!! 😁
McConaughey was the best thing about this movie. Could have been a little better
Tell a good story and show real areas of Detroit, Michigan
Enjoyed it has a good story telling
this was an amazing movie! had me all up in the feels
Such an interesting, true story
You should see it and get to know White Rick
Didn’t know what would happen next!
waste of money
was miss leading, typical ending
Horrible plot. Jumped time distance without explanation, no character development. Not sure what I just watched, but would rather watch paint dry... at least there is a beginning middle and end.
Felt like it was more about the father than a kid.
The storyline made me angry. The justice system is so messed up. Other than me hating Michigan, the acting was pretty on point
My honest opinion: I thought it was dope and there was a nice soundtrack to go along with it.
Sick as movie
Not knowing who Rick was this film did a great job at capturing his personal life while also making a great movie
WBR was just ok. Matthew always gives a great performance.
Making his film debut, Richie Merritt plays Rick as a sullen, evidently stupid and certainly uncharismatic schemer in possession of a modicum of animal cunning and perhaps a hint of personal insight. But there’s no life in his eyes. And little life in his acting. Which is too bad for Matthew McConaughey, who gives yet another terrific performance.
The new film from ’71 director Yann Demange is best when it pauses to explore the father-and-son drama at the heart of this tale, as well as coldly examining America’s ruinous drug policy.
Despite impressive performances by Matthew McConaughey and newcomer Richie Merritt, the film fails to engage or enlighten.
