Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008This is the amazing Spike Lee film looking at the life of Malcolm X. You see Denzel Washington in probably his best ever role, breathing life into this complex historical figure. It really makes you understand what things shaped Malcolms ideas and vision as he progressed through his life. The music is superb, the acting is great and the direction is an unique and captivating as ever. Not only is this great to watch and will keep you engrossed throughout, but you will come away learning something about this influential man. Well worth a viewing.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008The reviews far exceed the film which portrays Malcolm X as a thoroughly self obsessed and ironically, rascist man, who could have/should have learned a few lessons from Ghandi and Nelson Mandela (which might have saved him being shot).
By the end of this tedious, far too long, drawn out saga, I couldn't wait for him to get shot - & it still took about 99 bullets - par for the course in this over-egged (& hammy) dish which managed to alienate me entirely from the man! Phew!!
Great FilmBy a customer from worcestershire, U.K. , 18 Jun 2008Enjoyed the film, great acting!
SmashingBy Impi (5 reviews) from Worthing , 19 Apr 2008Watching this film makes one realise the injustice and madness of life as we know it. It will also make you appreciate a great actor that Denzel is. You must see this one.
Malcolm XBy joe1983 (5 reviews) from Middlesbrough , 12 Apr 2008I must say although a very powerful film it was way too long. On many occassions I thought this has no relevance to the progression on the film and could have been 2 hours long at most
