Big ass Afros- Afro picks and hooded white nights, this is extreme infiltration at its finest. Strap on your seatbelts for this wild ride true story of the “BLACKkKLANSMAN”!
Brought to you by the legendary director Spike Lee, bringing to the big screen one of America’s unorthodox’d underdog tales, this movie is a must see for people of all races and backgrounds. BlackkKlansman presented various perspectives with a fresh pair of eyes. Uncomfortable topics were covered from hindsights that are just as relevant today as they were then; race relations, police relations, mindsets of individuals and organizations. The movie was humorous at times yet at other times very uncomfortable.
Let’s show some love for the new blood, (Denzel Washington’s son) John David Washington, he did an excellent job at capturing and owning this character. He was exceptional in his portrayal as Ron Stallworth and Spike Lee & Jordan Peele truly need to be more than commended for this phenomenal film that will become a classic. I believe there will be conversations sparked by this film for plenty of years to come. Truly astonishing!!!
Blackkklansman is a pure blast from the past, the setting of the movie puts you right back in time to the crazy events that went down in history! Plopping right into the war of segregation, we seek to get the unique perspective of a black undercover agent. Let the games begin. You must see this movie to see what the tactics were to infiltrate what is known as one of the worlds most infamous hate groups the Ku Klux Klan. Laugh out loud over the top racial dialogue, crime/and drama, extreme dry humor and tons of action! Of course all of this fails without great acting, especially a superb job well done by The great Topher Grace as (David Duke). Impressive display of retro fashions of the time, brings nostalgia and a certain true to life feel to the film. In addition, the fantastic soundtrack and sound editing brings that needed dynamic that represents emotion. INCREDIBLE!
Blackkklansman is another super artistic piece of work by Spike Lee in which he makes some parts of history fun to revisit. With its sometimes dry, barren joke pool and an ending that could have been better in a different direction , it’s a minor reason why I deduct some points. Still, with its deep information and for it sticking to the true story on some “for real for real stuff”, the movie does warrant some applause for the ability to make history come to life once more. It’s definitely worth a trip to the theatre!
I’m giving Blackkklansman a whopping 4.8 vegan burgers with slices of tofu bacon on top and incredible sides! It was great! A little slow in some points but picks up well! Extremely funny and some deep messages.. this movie will be talked about for years! Go and check it out and come back and let me know your thoughts.
