Critic Reviews for Battle for Brooklyn

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (4)

  • Although not exactly even-handed, the movie proves a deft look at a reluctant crusader and how financial sway and political override can so effectively trump the power of the average citizen.

    November 23, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Hawley and Galinsky, a longtime wife-and-husband documentary team, bring real suspense to the story, culled from many hundreds of hours of footage.

    October 6, 2011 | Rating: 3/4
  • A battle ordinarily requires two sides, yet this earnest, ungracefully reconstructed saga posits that opposition to the building of the New Jersey Nets' future home took place in a virtual vacuum, and that the fix was in from the start.

    June 22, 2011
  • Spins a compelling tale about the value of individual and collective resistance, even as it makes clear where power in our society really resides.

    June 19, 2011
  • Brings us inside the lives it touches.

    June 17, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Not exactly inspiring.

Audience Reviews for Battle for Brooklyn

  • Jun 09, 2015
    Although we follow the point of view of those who oppose a development which arguably would provide new opportunities for Brooklyn residents, the viewer remains on the fence as the debate unfolds as to what is best for a community. It also shines a light on the mega project which is such a popular way to spur economic development but which can often have results that are significantly less than anticipated.
