Critic Reviews for The Hard Stop

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (25)

  • The director George Amponsah embeds himself in north London to unravel the background, and the subjects of his powerful documentary are Duggan's best friends.

    October 10, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • "The Hard Stop" is most successful when it shows the gradual changes that Duggan's death has caused in the men's lives, and its longitudinal focus helps the viewer sympathize with its subjects.

    August 25, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The Hard Stop doesn't spoon-feed its audience. The film prefers driving around Tottenham's Broadwater Farm with the two riled, but grief-stricken men listening to stories from their childhood and teens.

    August 9, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • From Duggan's death all the way down to these casual domestic betrayals, the film has an acute sense of pain and injustice.

    July 21, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Black lives matter. So does nuance.

    July 17, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film is not always as focused as it could be, but it gives a voice to a community that is routinely denied one and a platform to Duggan's relatives, who claim that justice has yet to be done.

    July 21, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The uprisings ignited by Duggan's murder were fueled by the abysmal social conditions and poverty of the entire population, black, white and immigrant.

    February 26, 2021 | Full Review…
  • George Amponsah's film highlights the abuse and racism suffered by the Black community at the hands of the police for the past seven decades.
