Movie trailer


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.
HE IS THE BUTTLER lol jokes good movie not great but good and that's a stretch of the truth 5-7/10
There was a lot of hype regarding this movie and I was looking forward to seeing it and was very disappointed. I would not recommend this movie to anyone.
