Blindspotting was more drama than comedy. The movie is just trying to find the meaning behind its creation through its 90 minutes length and it fails to do so. Was it a smart hi hop movie commentaring on social issues? Was it a comedy about brotherhood? Was it a dark drama about the lead's stragles to find himself? Was it a crime movie about a man who witnesses a black man die after being shooted by a police officer? The movie had many themes and yet it failed to delever either. At least the performances were really good.

The Synopsis for Blindspotting (2018) 720p
Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers and are forced to watch their old neighborhood become a trendy spot in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. When a life-altering event causes Collin to miss his mandatory curfew, the two men struggle to maintain their friendship as the changing social landscape exposes their differences. Lifelong friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style and humor, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

Not Good EnoughReviewed bypennyelenabooksVote: 3/10
The story at the core of "Blindspotting" is powerful and perceptive on the trauma of racism. Exchanges of spoken word poetry between the two leads and kaleidoscopic visuals represent their inclusive, creative, violent native Oakland. Fantasy visions also partly cloak the implausible elements of the story, and illuminate the characters' psycho-social pain. But personal expression won't overcome race and class oppression, or prevent the corporate-tech-hipster takeover of Oakland. The film's real blindspot is the hole where a vision of creative collective action might have been.R. Freed
'BLINDSPOTTING': Four and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
A comedy-drama about a black parolee, who's almost done with his sentence, that witnesses a racially charged police shooting, and also has to deal with his trouble making best friend. The movie stars Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal, two lifelong best friends that also wrote the screenplay (based on their real life experiences living in Oakland). The film was directed by first time feature filmmaker Carlos López Estrada, and it's received almost unanimous rave reviews from critics. I really enjoyed it as well.
Collin (Diggs) is on his last three days of parole, and he's really hoping to start a fresh new life for himself when he's done. He works with his best friend Miles (Casal), at a moving job in Oakland. While Collin is trying to leave his violent troubled life behind him, Miles (who's white) seems to keep seeking out trouble. To complicate things even more Collin also witness a white police officer (Ethan Embry) shoot and kill a black man in the streets one night, while he's out after his curfew. This continues to haunt him.
The movie is funny, and it's two lead characters are both likable (in very different ways) and relatable (also in very different ways). Collin is definitely the more likable of the two, but the film also does a pretty good job of depicting Miles' troubles as well, in an equally sympathetic way. The movie is a really well made buddy flick, that also has a large amount of really insightful and intriguing social commentary too (that's very fitting to today's most common headlines). It's definitely a film worth seeing in my opinion.
