All Critics (49) | Top Critics (26) | Fresh (49)

  • The film finds its biggest strengths in the quiet moments with Davis's parents as they attempt to move through the grief of losing their only child.

    January 28, 2021 | Full Review…
  • While "Justice for Jordan" may have been served, the words - and Davis' story - are yet another reminder of a nation that remains fractured by inequality, desperately in need of change.

    October 28, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • While the documentary itself merely gives the audience a bird's eye view of the courtroom narrative, it punctuates the point that is too often forgotten in these cases: It is Dunn who is on trial here, not Davis.

    September 1, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Cleanly presented and crisply framed, each image is shot with a respectfully detached gaze, from the talking heads to the twisting Floridian highways shot at golden hour. Sadly, this means that Silver's treatment of the case feels overly forensic.

    August 1, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • We must not just simply remember, we must stand up and demand our humanity. If we don't, we've let Jordan Davis down and after seeing, 3 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets that is the last thing that you will want to do.

  • What the documentary the filmmakers have assembled is educational, eye opening, often emotional, sad and galvanizing.

    August 1, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Marc Silver's tautly edited film, as well as being a compelling real-life courtroom drama, offers some clarity about race and injustice in the pre-Trump era.

    April 13, 2021 | Rating: B-plus | Full Review…
  • The nature of the injustice and the psychologies of his subjects are more than interesting enough to carry us through a full-length feature, and in recognizing that, he shows restraint.
