  • ... we see why it's so hard for minorities to feel like they can trust those assigned to protect them. Two communities pull in opposite directions, perhaps permanently.

  • The result, unusual in a documentary involving the police and the public, is a film that does not advocate for anything but the truth, one that aims to show what happens on both sides of an issue rather than coming down in favor of one or the other.

  • A strong film that tackles a charged subject in a fair and even-handed manner. The Force will give viewers of all social and political persuasions much to think about afterwards.

    September 22, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie may offer an incriminatory catalog of organizational failure, but it also repeatedly shows people trying to make the system work.

  • To his credit, director Peter Nicks accepts the dispiriting trajectory that this initially hopeful film ultimately takes-there's no dissembling here.

    September 20, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Though initially compelling, Peter Nick's documentary is fundamentally without a clear perspective on its subject.

Audience Reviews for The Force

  • Aug 19, 2017
    'The Force' looks deeper into the real life drama and corruption of the Oklahoma Police Force, where a number of the controversial murders took place and the inception of the 'Black Lives Matter' movement. Capturing a lot of camera footage on the time and place these events occurred helps the viewers understand the general conflict the people as well as the city council have the force. For the most part, it almost feels like a real life drama for the sake of the film being an investigation on the reporting and independent journalism and for the most part that works. However, the lack of conventional interviews makes the documentary feel lackluster in offering counterproductive POVs up close or personal to ensure any compelling arguments that's happened over the past 3-4 years. The film itself is just, 'fine' for that matter, well made, edited, shot and it very eye opening into a modern central conflict between police force and general public that's not only captured the nation but the entire world. Insightful for the most part, but also bleak and not enough personal intersections to gether everything up at the end.
