Led by a powerhouse performance from John Boyega, '892' is a tense thriller with a powerful narrative that's damaged by melodramatic direction.

John Boyega anchors 892, a taut, nail-biting thriller based on a true story, about a U.S. Marine driven to drastic measures after his Veterans benefits were misrouted.

February 1, 2022
In spite of its rough edges, Abi Damaris Corbin's latest effort is still a solid retelling of Brian Easley's poignant tale.

892 joins the fray of media, drama and documentary alike, to keep the spotlight on the most enduring kind of rot right below the star-spangled surface.

January 29, 2022
John Boyega gives a stunning performance and, while 892 doesn't offer anything deeper, Corbin is able to build enough momentum to leave an impact.

Tense and heartbreaking, 892 sees John Boyega, Nicole Beharie, and the late Michael K. Williams giving powerhouse performances.
January 28, 2022
Abi Damaris Corbin's thriller 892, is a predictably grim affair about a US veteran, but a commanding performance from John Boyega keeps you riveted.

Williams, in his last on-screen role, shines with material that isn't fully fleshed out, showing his ability to pull emotion out of anything and imbue his character with the empathy and understanding only he could...
January 28, 2022
It's far from any easy movie to watch, but a worthy telling of the story.

January 28, 2022
In the end, 892 thus emerges as a poignant character study, rather than the throwback thrillers it falls short of emulating. In doing so, it acts as a tribute to those who have been left behind by America's inequitable system of governance.

All of the actors are terrific.

Boyega's tightly wound but heartfelt interpretation is what helps 892 stand out, along with one of the last screen performances of Michael K. Williams's career.

Boyega, in some of his finest work to date, takes your breath away

January 25, 2022
Director Abi Damaris Corbin hits plenty of familiar beats in her based-on-a-true-story debut feature, but 892 manages to partly shrug off its formulaic trappings thanks to an electrifying, career-best performance from Boyega.

892 moved me deeply. The fact Brian's story isn't universally known is a shame. John Boyega has never been better and Michael K. Williams delivers a tremendous final turn.

January 25, 2022
892 is a powerful film that will leave audiences reeling as the credits roll. Corbin and Armah neatly adapted a tragic reality and presented it with grace and understanding, which will hopefully force audiences to think about the reality they live in.
