All Critics (7) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • Laquan McDonald deserved a better life, and he deserved a better memorial than a dashcam video, or, for that matter, 16 Shots.

    June 14, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • As Rowley's film reminds us, there was no huge public outcry in the immediate aftermath of Laquan's death, no major media surge to investigate the official police line.

    June 14, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Thoughtful yet stylish, 16 Shots maintains a firm grasp of these narratives while introducing a few more over the course of its runtime.

  • This vital documentary recognizes that it's an issue that extends beyond the death of one teenager, but it never loses sight of that single life lost.
