What the Critics say
Leandra Engelbrecht A great script combined with a great cast this movie is a must-see.
Jim Judy Only time will tell if movies like this will have an impact on relations between cops and people of color, but there’s no denying this is a powerful and timely offering.
Tomatometer Led by a breakout turn from Amandla Stenberg, the hard-hitting The Hate U Give emphatically proves the YA genre has room for much more than magic and romance.
