Great Flick But Not For Idealists (by jamesptierney)
The ironies in drug enforcement provide the sub-text for this excellent film. The FBI uses a 15-year-old kid as an informant to make arrests and seize cocaine brought into this country with the help of the Detroit PD and members of the mayor's family. Rick is merely a pawn in the chessboard of life in which he was destined to either get killed or go to jail. Because I saw the trailer, I was not surprised by the ending, But that's what attracted me in the first place. Enjoy!
Yes (by AdrienneGrayceMusic)
Thank you for making this film. The world needs to hear about this story I've been following for decades. The movie was slow but it was necessary. The previews didn't look that great to me but the actual movie was excellent. The acting was on point. The story was told the way it should have been. Pleasantly surprised on how much I liked it.
Heartbreaking (by dpb0402)
White Boy Rick differs in lots of ways from most gangster style films of today for one reason. It's mainly centered as the name would imply around white people. This is a movie about a white kid in Detroit who is going through a life just as hard as any black child in any other film like this about crime and gangsters. The cast of this movie is incredible. As someone who comes from a broken family it is very spot on with the way particular story threads work out. These actors and actresses were all cast for good reason. They look the part of white trash, play the part of white trash, and <more>
make you feel like you're watching a white trash family fall apart.This is NOT a feel good movie. I feel like most of these bad reviewers went in expecting a movie about how he was caught early and the bulk of the movie would be him fighting the system. This is not the case. I believe that's why the film is struggling. If you enjoy hard to stomach stories of loss and betrayal this movie is for you.
This is a real roller coaster of a movie - dizzying highs and sickening lows. In all the betrayal and redemption there's a dysfuntional but compelling family story that forms the core of the movie. It's a bit choppy, some things seemed a bit unfinished and the dialogue and accents reportedly realistic are sometimes hard to follow. But the performances are worth watching. I'm probably going to see it again.
Best movie of this year (by m-maxime)
This is my first review on Imdb. I feeled the urge to post it after seeing the bad reviews I read.This movie is quite a masterpiece, it is for me the best movie of this year. It has everything you want : the story comes from a true one and will let you think a lot on your own even after the movie ends. The cinematography is beautiful, Max Richter for the music lets you speechless and thinking what would have been your call if you were at the place of white boy Rick... Mc Conaughey shows one more time that he is one of the best actor of this last 10 years, a classic top of the class Mc <more>
Conaughey In this movie. And I couldn't finish this review without talking about Richie Merritt that plays his first role in this movie. I think only one sentence can describe it, he is not an actor, he is white boy Rick! Pure performance.Go watch this movie without an ounce of hesitation.
I Was Engaged The Whole Time (by billyduaneblanton)
I loved the movie and performances from the entire cast. There were a few awkward points in it, but I never lost interest in the film. Such an interesting story and I'm glad I got to learn all about it. My only nitpick is the ending albeit, original, was very flat. I feel like it could've been executed better.
Glad I spent the money, despite mediocre reviews. (by jdrubnitz)
Yes, if you expect this to be a Hollywood "gangster movie" with distinctly extreme highs and lows in the plot, you'll be extremely disappointed....but if you remember that White Boy Rick is just a human being, and this is a film about human beings struggling, you'll appreciate this film.
Good but not Great Movie (by macinasent)
I went to see this with an open mind as the reviews were mixed. I actually enjoyed the movie. Yes, some parts were slow but this is not Infinity Wars people the Marvel generation wants an explosion or murder every 2 minutes . I actually found the dad's character as the most believable. His struggles in life and poor decision making was the actual catalyst for most of the stuff that went on. I say go see it for yourself. May not be a date movie but definitely a guy movie for sure.
Quite happily surprised (by scott3020676)
Wasn't really looking forward to seeing this film at first. I was intrigued to find from the very beginning the exposition and plot brought my attention straight to the screen. From beginning to end I love the one liners and the party scene and the whole family aspect and growth. Hated the ending, but it was the ending I could expect watching white boy rick from beginning to end.
