Critic Reviews for A Shot Through the Wall

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

The brisk, eventful melodrama has an undeniably absorbing appeal...

January 20, 2022 | Full Review…

The movie's ending feels contrived, too pat to be believable but Long sustains interest as she tries for -- without quite achieving -- a big-picture look at a hot-button issue.

January 28, 2022 | Full Review…

Providing a fresh perspective on a hot-button topic, this earnest yet provocative low-budget drama about the aftermath of a police-involved shooting benefits from some intriguing character dynamics and a deeply felt performance by Kenny Leu.

January 21, 2022 | Full Review…

It's not until the very end ... that the movie genuinely confronts the pain of its premise. By then, it's far too little and far too late.

January 20, 2022 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A somber, thought-provoking essay on policing, race, firearms and family.

January 20, 2022 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A Shot Through the Wall gives voice to the Asian community and police officers in difficult scenarios. It cheats with a blunt resolve and lack of attention to the black victim, but is definitely a worthy effort.
