Ryan Coogler is building a star system - and I'm all here for it. What Stanfield and Kaluuya are doing here is unreal. This is some DeNiro-Pacino shit and it's time we talk about it in these terms.

I was pretty surprised by how good this is. This particular story revolving around Hampton and O'Neal should honestly be essential viewing. Kaluuya is phenomenal and Stanfield is also really good. I thought some of the directing felt like Michael Mann and the beautiful cinematography helps back that thought up. I do think the last half hour drags a bit, but it's otherwise a well paced, very investing drama with quite the punch. Very well done.

Like Malcolm X or Selma, a Fred Hampton biopic is needed--both as a piece of history and an epic film. The story serves the collective liberation politics well, especially via a Kaluuya performance that shows the love and charm of Fred Hampton. But the picture slightly misses the movie by not fully dramatizing the two men in question--especially from the emotional fallout of the betrayal. Also, the film can be a bit too mawkish with its romance and period music soundtrack. Still, recommended.

Excellent all around. Kaluuya and Stanfield stand out, but nobody is a weak link.

One of my first thoughts when I started watching the movie, upon seeing Ryan Coogler's name as a producer, was to question why they didn't get him to direct it. After finishing the movie (no disrespect to Coogler), I'm glad they didn't, because Shaka King did a tremendous job with this material. Kaluuya and Stanfield both put in excellent work in film-driving efforts. Between this and "Trial of the Chicago 7", we have an excellent spiritual duology of social justice in the late 60's in America.
