Movie Reviews

Your Movies (cleveland.com) - 9/10 by John UrbancichMcConaughey's performance sets the standard for a fine ensemble that includes Cleveland standing in for 1980s Detroit. However, 'Rick' rarely becomes anything we can root for with a script that drifts too easily.
Tolucan Times - 9/10 by Tony MedleyA riveting tale of a young FBI informant who became a drug dealer and the tempestuous relationship between him and his father highlighted by fine performances by the entire cast.
Reel Honest Reviews - 9/10 by Pamela PowellAs talented as McConaughey is, new-comer Merritt steals the show as the boy who can make no right decisions. His speech, affect and body language are what gives this character authentication as we believe his every word.
Detroit News - 9/10 by Adam GrahamIt's a tale of right and wrong, greed, power and corruption. This telling gets a lot of the details right, but pulling away, the bigger picture is left rather blurred.
TheWrap - 9/10 by Todd GilchristA frequently indelible cinematic experience, charged with unique energy and impact even when its premise is overly familiar.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 9/10 by Brad WheelerIt’s a working-class story, albeit one that doesn’t involve officially recognized "work,” which raises questions about police corruption and racially slanted drug policies. Speaking of questions, why is a white character being held up as a shining symbol of the black man’s plight? Something to consider. Otherwise, White Boy Rick has much to say yes to.
New York Post - 9/10 by Johnny OleksinskiFrench director Yann Demange doesn’t clean up the story or make a hurting neighborhood look pretty. The film stays foreboding, gritty and honest. Merritt’s no-frills style is the film’s greatest asset, while McConaughey brings an authentic paternal concern to his usual trailer-park persona.
Toronto Star - 9/10 by Bruce DeMaraMerritt as young Rick who is a genuine revelation here, capturing the essence of his character - indolent but loyal and loving - with a performance that is subtle, textured and wholly believable.
Battleship Pretension - 9/10 by Rita CannonWhile undeniably entertaining, White Boy Rick ultimately hobbles itself by forcing a complicated story into a simpler format than it deserves.
Seattle Times - 8/10 by Soren AndersenThe '80s Detroit of "Rick" is a wintry moral wasteland. Despair hangs heavy in the air there.
