Um filme raro com atuações que despertam algo maior, o diretor Ryan Coogler usa e abusa de seus closes nos personagens principais, conseguindo com muita ênfase, deixar seu espectador mais próximo de seus personagens principais.
A atuação de Michael B. Jordan não é só exemplar, mas, principalmente sincera, dentro de um roteiro que estabelec uma linha perfeita do que realmente importa para que o personagem seja icônico, Fruitvale Station condena tudo o que há de errado como um soco na face de seu espectador e, por mais doloroso que seja, celebra a arte.

A beautifully directed film.

This murder/accident was actually not about racism. A real racist person, even the dumbest racist person, would never do this in public.

Breathtaking; from the opening scene to the last frame, "Fruitvale" depicts a tragically true story on human loss that deserves to be ranked with importance.

9.5 out of 10:

It's a bit predictable but with great acting and a powerful story, Fruitvale Station makes a great movie to watch.

Sad and moving without a place for us to go further and a big tragedy wrapped in a little story...tension builds in every scene (no matter how slow) leads us to the end we dread.


As most every scene as a picture frame of what's important
in the day in the life of a guy turning himself around,
less than stellar direction and writing, sometimes pulls tension away from the ever present Titanic-like 'he almost made it'/ultimate demise' scenario.

Witnessing more his destiny rather than his life beginning, beautifully placed flashbacks help balance the WHY he's moving forward in his life
and where he's not yet reached. A tough balance of empathizing with the character, without necessarily liking him, Fruitvale Station ultimately leaves us saying,
'we do care'

Wow. Starts slow, but the character development was so powerful.

This powerful account of the last 24 hours of Oscar Grant, a black man needlessly gunned down by the police at the titular train station, is an incredible film. Featuring an outstanding performance from Michael B. Jordan; the directorial debut of acclaimed director Ryan Coogler (Creed, Black Panther) is a high achievement.

With Michael B. Jordan as the main role, he gives Fruitvale Station the ability to overview one of the most tragic, yet powerful stories ever told.

Ryan Coogler sheds light on a real life tragic event not commonly known. The precipitous opening title sequence with the eerie fading of the crowd reaction made progression towards the end more gut-wrenching. My only gripe is the finale which contains the all-too-conventional footage of the real life characters. Nonetheless, Fruitvale Station is a hard-hitting, concise, greatly acted "film" that's more than a film, but an emotional experience vivid enough to make viewers feel like they're next to Oscar Grant in his final hours.

Efficient, moving, outrage-inducing snapshot of police violence on black youth in America.

Before watching this movie, I only knew the basic facts around Oscar Grant's murder at Fruitvale Station in 2009. This movie may not be what you expect (at least it wasn't what I expected.) It's about Oscar's last full day alive: New Year's Eve, 2008.

The movie follows him as he wakes up with his girlfriend, shops for his mother's birthday dinner, and celebrated New Year's before being shot on the train platform of Fruitvale Station.

This is truly a gripping movie filled with excellent acting and is worth an hour and a half of your time.

Sad and powerful movie. Ryan Coogler is a great director and Michael B Jordan is amazing #blacklivesmatter
January 16, 2016
Excellent in almost every way. Sad and lacking a traditional narrative though.
January 15, 2016
Fruitvale Station is fantastic debut for both Michael B Jordan and Ryan Coogler who are sure to both become rising stars in the near future.

Rating: 7.9 (B+)

I haven't cried like this in a while.

I think more than a testament to the well known real life event, this is a testament to how mature and talented Ryan Coogler was even coming out of film school. A lot of people at his level would make style-over-substance flicks emulating a certain director or writer. But I can already tell that he's got his own distinct style. It makes sense that he made Creed just as impeccably as this.
