True reality exposed

I have to say that the movie is pretty boring almost till its end since that's the part when things really make sense. Also, I think there are some social elements in Oscar Grant's that could've been developed better. He had a life full of difficulties that would've made his character more human and realistic maybe presenting some glimpses of his childhood, overall violence during his upbringing, etc. Overall, I think the message was conveyed and it is the true brutality. This is a very educational filmed that should be taught in the police, schools, and any other institution where basic human rights are in place, so that we can all learn from this brutality and make a change in our still racist society.

Worth watching...

Fruitvale Station almost borders on documentary. For better or worse it feels pretty much based in the real world with no dramatization that I can see. An important film well acted. Can't help thinking though it could have been a little better and impactful.

Completely Engrossing

Based on the true story of Oscar Grant (played by Michael B. Jordan), a man who was shot by a policeman while he was handcuffed and lying face down. "Fruitvale Station" dramatizes the 24 hours leading up to the shooting, showing us two sides of Jordan: the hot tempered, ex-convict; and the loving father, boyfriend, and son who is trying hard to live a regular life and not go back to drug dealing which could land him in prison again. The inner struggle of Jordan is easily conveyed to the audience, thanks to the exceptional talents of actor Michael B. Jordan, whose expressive eyes easily give away his inner thoughts and feelings. Jordan's lightning fast temper is also a frightening thing to behold, giving the audience a clue of one reason why things went bad so fast. My most memorable, movie moment is the actual cell phone video of the seconds leading up to the shooting, shown at the beginning of the movie. "Fruitvale Station" is a completely engrossing movie that gives the audience a glimpse of the injustice that young, black males sometimes suffer at the hands of certain police officers; and how a bad situation can quickly become deadly when two groups of hotheads get into an argument.
