    Amazing acting by Whitaker and Depp. Slow pace but you get sucked in because the acting is so damn good.

    not as much Biggie and Tupac as I thought there would be. Depp and Whittaker did what they do, act the crap out of their characters. Good, good movie.

    Es una gran película, con actuaciones magistrales de Forest y Depp. Recrea lo que pasa en muchos departamentos de policía del mundo y que estamos a merced de la impunidad en muchas ocasiones. Hay que ver esta película, la recomiendo y no solo veamos películas de superhéroes y películas comerciales en general.

    A movie with a lot of heart and soul behind it. You can notice the dedication behind it. Really recommended.

    City of Lies is based specifically on Russel Poole's theory that the LAPD were directly involved in the murder of Christopher Wallace (The Notorious B.I.G.). Before watching this movie I had only heard the theory that it was related to Tupac's murder - basically a gang retaliation because several believed Biggie was responsible for Tupac's death. I had never followed it beyond that.  I also didn't know anything about the Rampart Scandal. So this movie was definitely interesting, but it was also a little bit slow and could have benefitted from faster paced writing, but I love seeing Johnny Depp back on screen and he gives a great performance here. Overall the movie is really good.

    I didn't know I needed to see Johnny Depp & Forrest Whittaker act together, but my, what a duo. What a story!

    This movie gave a heart and souls to Russell Poole which we haven't seen. Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker chemistry was great but when he was onscreen but when Johnny and Violeta scene it was pure and honest and I felt her pain.
