"A drama as powerful as it is timely."
- Owen Gleiberman, Variety
"Tense, excruciating and entirely necessary "
- Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
"Even though it's based on an episode that occurred half a century ago, it feels like [Bigelow's] timeliest movie yet."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"This gritty, gripping movie starts slowly but builds in intensity, culminating in sorrow and raw nerves. "
- Tim Grierson, Screen International
"Dramatically relentless and emotionally shattering, it brings news from a turbulent past that casts a baleful light on America's troubled present."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"An artfully frazzled mosaic of suffering, putting the audience through the wringer in the name of truth, injustice and what many see, still, as the American way with police brutality."
- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Director Bigelow and screenwriter Boal take the Detroit race riots of half a century ago and create a hardcore masterpiece that digs into our violent past to hold up a dark mirror to the systemic racism that still rages in the here and now."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The standoff at the Algiers Motel has entered legend (if not widely known history) as a notorious incident of interrogatory injustice. Bigelow makes it the centerpiece of Detroit and, simply put, has crafted her most harrowing piece of filmmaking."
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"Detroit has a vital sense of authenticity, rooted as it is in history, conveyed via Bigelow’s meticulously crafted cinema vérité style that, essentially, thrusts the viewer into the tense events. She is an expert at managing suspense and deftly blending sensitivity with a journalistic sense of details. "
- Claudia Puig, TheWrap
"Bigelow, working from a script by her regular collaborator Mark Boal (it’s their first film since “Zero Dark Thirty”), has created a turbulent, live-wire panorama of race in America that feels like it’s all unfolding in the moment, and that’s its power. We’re not watching tidy, well-meaning lessons — we’re watching people driven, by an impossible situation, to act out who they really are. "
- Owen Gleiberman, Variety
