Informative, and not overt
8 October 2019 | by asc85See all my reviews

While all filmmakers have a point of view, I think if there were any biases in "16 Shots," they are not overt, and I appreciated that. Of course there is no doubt that some people will disagree with this previous statement. This film covers an extremely polarizing event that took place in Chicago, and I recognize that it's hard to stay politically neutral. I consider myself pro-police, but I also thought the shooting of Laquan McDonald was dead wrong.

The other interesting tidbit in this movie was seeing a pre-Jussie Smollett version of Kim Foxx.
