Eye-opening and humanizing, this is as atypical an animated feature as one is likely to find washing ashore in the United States.
The lack of a clear direction and vision leads to something haphazard, sloppy, and not remotely viscerally compelling.

"Detroit" functions as much as a dramatization of things that happened as a cautionary tale of where we could be headed.
Looks and feels like something made for Cartoon Network or Amazon Prime rather than a big-screen offering.
