spike lee at his bestBy Qaes Mujawar from london , 12 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]if you like spike lee movies, youll love this. this film tells us about the life of malcom x, from when he was a street gangsta going to prison and converting to islam through the following of blacks rights movement of the nation of islam. this is definatly denzel at his finest.
although the film is a bit long it is thoroughly absorbing.

"absoloutely brilliant'By iiz (7 reviews) from Middlesbrough , 23 Jul 2009im a huge fan of denzel washington and only watched malcolm x recently, ive seen a lot of his movies and i think he's immaculate, but in this movie perfects his role as well as the movie,this is a absolute must if your a 'zel' fan, not only he is great but the movie is true portrait of life in that particular era,you will not b dissapointed so i urge u to prioritise 'malcolm x' high
Inspiring filmBy Abidm (3 reviews) from ... , 14 Jun 2009Great performance from Denzel, very convincing. Fortunately not a one sided film, gives the whole story of Malcomn X. Starting from a thug who then becomes a minister of a racist group called Nation of Islam. Through the film you see why people were driven to do what they did and also how it is still wrong.
Worth sticking withBy NeilWeightman (33 reviews) from Peckham , 28 May 2009The first third of this movie seemed like a real mess to me: far too rapid, very badly edited, confusing and over-ambitious in terms of the amount of material covered, but the last couple of hours (after Malcolm X is converted to Islam) is a very convincing, interesting and moving portrayal of this very important historical figure. The main characters are well developed and engaging and the film builds successfully to its sad climax.
One of the best films ever madeBy gullyforth (16 reviews) from Swansea , 26 May 2009As long as you can handle Spike Lee trying to get his mug in every shot (in a frankly juxtaphosed and invented character), this amazing film about an amazing man is worth watching over and over again.
Still Amazing!By a customer from Burton Upon Trent, England , 07 Apr 2009This was the first time I had watched the movie in about 15 years and I can definately say that it is as powerful today as it was back then. Sure there are inconsistencies, as there are with every film ... it is Hollywood afterall ... but there is a strength and passion in the film which has not been lost over the years. It gives a flavour of the times and the events for later generations to base life's questions on. I enjoyed it so much I didn't want to send it back!
