White Boy Rick is in theaters on September 14th, 2018.

White Boy Rick brings Detroit to the world. You may have heard of the story, or maybe you haven't. White Boy Rick is the story about Rick Wershe Jr. becoming a drug dealer, and an informant for the FBI. Some of the things you may not believe, so you may end up Googling them after the movie.

Richie Merritt plays White Boy Rick, and a quick IMDB search will show you that this is his first film acting job. Which is crazy to think about because he was an amazing actor in this movie. Richie Merritt will be a name to watch out for in the future as I am sure he will be bringing us good things soon. So keep your eyes open for him.

Matthew McConaughey who plays White Boy Rick's father is a great addition to the movie, the only issue was, was that Matthew McConaughey was under used. You can't have a house hold name in a movie, and not make him shine out in the movie. His performance was not on par with how he normally performs in some of his previous films. Matthew McConaughey did get into a character that we could relate to, he just wanted the best for his kids. It's the little moments he spent with his on-screen son, that gave you the glimpse of the amazing actor her normally is.

White Boy Rick is based on the true events that happen in Detroit in the mid to late 80s. It's best to remember that it is based on a true story, some events will not be actuate. If you get a chance, you should watch this movie. If you are from the Detroit area, you should watch it even more. It will bring you back some memories you may want to relive, or it will just show case a city I am sure we all love.

Rating: 3 out of 5
