A police raid in Detroit in 1967 results in one of the largest RACE riots in United States history. The story is centred around the Algiers Motel incident, which occurred in Detroit, Michigan on July 25, 1967, during the racially charged 12th Street Riot. It involves the death of three black men and the brutal beatings of nine other people: seven black men and two white women.
Kathryn Bigelow needs to go back to Directors school
Was Kathryn Bigelow getting paid per minute on this dragged out slow paced 143 minute mess? Was this filmed by a high school kid holding an iPhone? My eyes were going cross-eyed and I got a migraine 30 mins into this film with the idiotic shaky-cam, out of focus, and moronic unnecessary zoom-ins/outs. Kathryn Bigelow needs to go back to Directors school to learn how to direct the cameras to capture the moment (scene) properly, learn how to edit a film to a respectable length, and fasten the pace to keep the viewers attention. What a shame for such lost potential by stellar acting and a decent story (not the screenplay, it too needed work), the only two reasons I gave this film a 6 and not a 1/10
