From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. In the early 1970s, Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a difference, he bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. He recruits a seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation. Together, they team up to take down the extremist organization aiming to garner mainstream appeal. Produced by the team behind the Academy Award®–winning Get Out, BlacKkKlansman offers an unflinching, true-life examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as relevant in today's tumultuous world.
Infiltrate hate.. Colorado Springs, late 1970s. Ron Stallworth, an African American police officer, and Flip Zimmerman, his Jewish colleague, run an undercover operation to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.. BlacKkKlansman Wiki
Absolutely worth your time. Acting was great, story was incredible, and the end really drives home how far yet we still have to go. Unfortunately, it has a really low rating on itunes because white people just can't stand it when a black person tells them the klan is a racist terrorist organization.
Movie has a great message about racism and prejudice from both sides of the spectrum. Literally great movie, just the politics of “Make America Great Again” being thrown in there as racist then connecting it to Trump at the end in the towards the credits.(A president should want to put his country before others) Charlottesville being shown with David Duke(F*** him) and how he agrees with the president. It’s hard to see a movie that doesn’t try to push an agenda down your throat. Charlottesville definitely had good and bad people on both sides, unfortunately we don’t live in a perfect world where things escalated to violence.
Turned out to be really lame!!
A movie that was not needed.
I appreciate you putting that movie together so quickly. Thank you!!! Perfect timing!
Or I would say more current than historical. Not sure if the satire or the reality is more powerful. Great movie
Should have won the Golden Globe
Watch it. It's worth your time. Frankloy I don't understand the negative reviews. I thought this was a wonderful movie by Spike Lee.
Just horrible, felt so inconsistent and overall poor direction.
The story is a sad tale that in many ways is becoming more reminiscent of today’s society. The bounce back to the present day at the end of the film reminds us of this. I feel Topher Grace (sp?) may have had the toughest role... never mind, I don’t think I could’ve accepted any of the roles those guys played... and Adam Driver played his part exceptionally well. But John David Washington? He was made for this! I bought into his role immediately and loved the character. Just amazing. From the moment he walked onto the screen, I had a smile. Didn’t know until later who his father is. Makes sense now. Spike lee made a great interactive (yes, you do get emotionally involved), humorous (tough one but he made the appropriate characters look how they act), disturbing and enjoyable film. Although I felt disgusted at parts, it’s really how we all should feel. Race,creed, orientation... we may not always agree but it doesn’t make us less human to be ‘different’. Off my soapbox....
It's hard to watch some of the history behind racism. I personally wasn't raised with any understanding of racism, therfor there are moments during the film where i felt conflicted with watching, as if it was to promote are accept what happened. I personally believe if non of us knew of racism it would stop it from being fed into existing. My school and surrounding area was extremely mixed culture and no one hated anyone for just being a race of some type.
Very interesting and well directed movie especially considering the current civil rights climate in the USA and around the world. Definately glad I watched it even if it was not at all what I was expecting.
I'm not black. I love this movie. It's a well written script and the cinema, art, performance, score is outstanding. Watch it !
This movie is one of the best I’ve ever seen. Timely and relevant today for all of us in any country, but especially those American. It’s a mirror of society.
Except for the 70’s style, clothes and places this movie is slow and boring. I understand the point of the story but it could have been told in 15mins.
WOW this movie is bad I want my money back
one of the best this year
This film represents the need for the Great United States to stand up for what continues to occur in this country. People remain unequal and so hateful throughout history. This film brought this to the forefront again. The actors were well casts. For those who haven’t found the light there is an Old Book hanging around called Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin, a absolute recommendation.
