Based on real life event and it was well rounded. I especially the Q & A in the special features section.

This is the re-enactment of a tragic shooting that happened in New Year's eve in the Bay Area, filled with plenty of day-to-day life of the victim before the event. Because of this day-to-day story telling, the film loses much of its attractiveness as a film - I don't find his life interesting. The final climax was well staged, and the acting was good.

A LOOSER WHO WAS SHOT. COULD NOT HOLD A JOB. BART POLICE WERE GUILTY ON HOW THEY HANDLED. THE SITUATION. AUDIO WAS NOT UNDERSTADABLE. DIRECTORS HAVE EAR PHONES AND WE DO NOT. HARD TO FOLLOW DIALOGE. I LIKE TRUE STORIES.

Fantastic film about the untimely death of Oscar Grant. The story is true and deals with the last day of his life. We get a good picture at the kind of person that Oscar Grant was, a picture that could not be conveyed on paper. You'll be shocked and stunned, but it's important to witness. I hope everybody sees this film.

Very impressive movie. I have one question the movie did not answer: was the man who started the fight on the BART train ever punished??? Does anyone know?

Above average racially charged true life tragic story. Focuses on the man rather than the event. Slow moving. I had never even heard about the events that the movie is based on which is sad.
