The feel-good movie of the year!

Awesome movie!!! Michael B. Jordan played his part superbly. When movie was over, I sat right there and cried. I was that moved. Best movie I have seen in a long time. I want to see it again, but I can't because it is too sad.

I loved this movie. Although it was based on a true story, and as disturbing as it was, the acting was superb!!

This was the most informative movie that I have seen this year. It provides insight on being a young African American/Black male in America. Oscar Grant III reality was similar to the Travon Martin - however, Oscar death did not get the media attention in the way in which Travon's did. A must see

Just a lifetime movie and low budget.....This belongs on TV for free not for sales for movies.

In many ways, Fruitvale Station is as green and earnest as "Boyz N the Hood," a debut film made by another alumnus of Coogler's alma mater, USC: John Singleton. Yet its ambition is closer to that of the most important American indie film in at least a decade, Patrick Wang's "In the Family," a must-see that's now available on DVD. Full Review

Fruitvale is outstanding, a telling portrait and testament to the life of one man and the complicated relationships to race and class that still exist within America today. Full Review

Fruitvale Station isn't really a surprising film, except insofar as it's rare to see such a warmly emotional big-screen portrait of black family life. Full Review

Michael B. Jordan is superbly multi-dimensional as Grant. Full Review

Fruitvale Station will rock your world — and, if the life of Oscar Grant means anything, compel you to work to change it. Full Review
