A police raid in Detroit in 1967 results in one of the largest RACE riots in United States history. The story is centred around the Algiers Motel incident, which occurred in Detroit, Michigan on July 25, 1967, during the racially charged 12th Street Riot. It involves the death of three black men and the brutal beatings of nine other people: seven black men and two white women.
On July 25, 2017, "Detroit" premiered at The Fox Theater in Detroit, nearly 50 years after the date most of the movie takes place on. See more »
The blood over Julie's eye changed slightly from one scene to the next. Most of it, she had the same blood smear but in one scene, the blood was on her eyelid when it wasn't in the rest of the scenes. See more »

This movie grabbed me from the very beginning. I completely lost myself in the portrayal of events...scared ...shocked...angered. There are many critics of this film that claim its not "historically accurate." Baloney!! Three unarmed young men were found shot to death in a location that was not involved in the rioting at all. The only people in the hotel with guns...were cops. Detroit homicide detective and the DA thought these cops were guilty...otherwise they would not have been brought up on charges. Those are the "facts". It's odd to me that the "not historically accurate" criticism is being played here. Dunkirk isn't historically accurate, Gettysburg wasn't historically accurate..and so on. Think of all the films that portrayed native Americans and African slaves in ways that made them look evil or savage. It seems that some films, topics, and directors get away with all kinds of fancy. Don't be fooled. This movie is great.
