Excellent movie. The same situation has happened too many times. It was heartbreaking to watch.

Sadly this film will remain powerful and relevant as long as there are Michael Browns and Eric Garners. Excellent work by Michael B. Jordan ("The Wire") and Octavia Spencer.

A must see for all people from all aspects of life. Never judgemental towards any of the true characters and allows you to feel and come to terms of what our society is becoming. Truly a superb movie of a tragic event

Great movie, well acted and MIchael B. Jordan showcases powerful and wide ranges of emotion. Worth renting and I would even say buying to add to a personal collection. I was very moved by the movie and would reccomend it to anyone.

Well acted but incredibly tragic. Worth a watch. The tension mounts as you know how the story ends. The heartbreak in the aftermath is heartrending.

Such a powerfully compelling movie. What a tragic story! Worth watching as it encourages the viewer to see all perspectives of a situation.

This is an incredible film that is unfortunately true. Don't want to get too into it and ruin it for others but it's sick that this is allowed to happen and continues to happen in our country. I actually watched this movie twice. From what I've read, this movie got screwed out of being nominated for the mainstream awards. It easily could've been a dramatization of the year nominee.

compelling story of the shocking shooting of Oscar Grant. very good special features. I used the English subtitles for the hearing impaired to help understand the dialogue.
