OUTSTANDING, outstanding movie! Absolutely loved it.. there were several moments throughout where I found myself just smiling. Also, please, don't get me wrong when I say this but this movie had that "Forest Gump" type of feel to it, with the years going by and things changing and all. I gave this one a 9/10 rating... AWESOME movie!!!
Very deep, thought-provoking film. Stellar casting! Definitively worth watching.
All star cast, awesome movie: 10 out of 10 rating.
wow i loved this movie it was great i am a Forrest Whitaker fan
Good movie.. goes to Google to do some research
Wonderful movie. This was really great to watch.
Great movie! compared to all the hype, it wasn't that good, but just for a first watch if you haven't ever heard of it before, it's awesome!
I can't speak for the historical accuracy of this film, but i can say it was a good watch. Very emotional and thought provoking. I found myself researching alot of what transpired on film, and any film that provokes that, is a winner in my book.
@Naptural saw it in the plane today :)
I wanted so badly to like this (Forest Whitaker!), but the racial commentary seemed clumsy and obvious. I think it's worth a watch if you can remind yourself that it's largely historical fiction.
