This was a little overhyped for me. It's a good movie, but not a great one. What makes it relevant is timing and debate over police brutality that was present in early 90s and reared its' ugly head again. Outside of that theme, the movie just falls within a conventional biopic.
This isn't just another good movie. This feels authentic. It's almost as if the screenplay never existed. Everything about this movie feels genuine, but most of all the stories, the characters, and the actors who portray them.
Johnny Depp is so good - that it's scary. Once you get beyond the bad make up job, you forget who's really underneath it all. The rest of the cast is great as well. Unfortunately, the movie is just ok. It's interesting, but doesn't really differentiate itself from other films in this genre. Solid filmmaking, but not memorable.
Brooklyn is sweet, well mannered, and enjoyable to watch. Brooklyn is not outstanding because it fails to have any crescendos or a real climax for that matter. It's well intentioned, well acted, and well told, but in the end it doesn't really amount to much
