Trajectory Shows how "coded language" used by one generation can lead to full blown violent hate in the next. Realistic portrayal of gang life, recruitment and also the "chicken hawks" and predators behind it all. On the surface a story about "racism" but really a story of broken families and those in our society who pray upon them. Happens all the time, every day, across cultures. Eye opening to the reality of class conflict, that in America, is masked under racism=divide and conquer.
A masterpiece. This movie is a classic, it depicts many issues and stereotypes with today's society, mainly racism. It shows us through the character's, that even people filled with hatred can change and have love towards their fellow man no matter what the color of their skin. An epic movie filled with plot twists and heart felt tragedy, as well as a somewhat painful epiphany and victory in the final scenes.
GREAT "HATE" MOVIE I LOVED! Riveting and thought provoking. Excellent story/plot. Ed Norton & Ed Furlong both excellent actors that have quickly become my new favorites. The portrayal of hate/racism depicted in this flick is a painful truth. Unsure I will see the cure to racism in my lifetime, but this movie has changed/moved me as well as challenged my own view point. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that is open-minded or a staunch racist. Such a well done movie.
mike hood there are simply movies that change you and the way you think. this is simply one of them. Edward Norton gave a stellar performance acting as a young confused teen that gets involved into a life of trouble and hate.
I was left paralyzed in amazement. An amazing, beautifully made film highlighting the carnage that will come when man allows hate to consume his heart and life. This film is a must-see, especially as a learning piece of the dangers of prejudice and racism. The ending truly left me speechless, staring at the credits, unable to move. Wow.
Racist reformation. Ed Norton goes on a journey in this film that walks him out of the extremes of racial hatred into a new world of understanding. Norton turns it on in this film which catapulted his career. The curb stomp scene is brutal.
One of my favorite films of all time! Edward Furlong and Edward Norton both give stellar performances. This movie depects an amazing inside view of the modern day issue of racism. Through the eyes of two brothers, played by Norton and Furlong. It proves hate can be taught through the generations. But it shows that love, and friendship can truly aid in overcoming it. This film has the power to positively affect and change the perspective of anyone that watches. Truly an excellent film, I highly recommend it!
One of my All Time Favorite Movies Although this movie is a bit raw, it offers a good moral displaying not only that racisim destoys but can have a very high price tag ! I really like many of Ed Norton's movies but I thought he was fabulous in this one!! Definitely not for young kids though.
Love this movie This movie grows on you... At first when I saw this I didn't like the use of racial slurs but Derek really grew on me.. the character development is really interesting to watch and it makes you think... Overall I give this movie 2 thumbs up
Wow! Okay, I think that anyone who thinks that people can't change the way they are, due to how they were raised, needs to watch Edward Norton in this movie. He really makes the concept of this movie come alive and you will be affected in some way. Enough said....watch and see...
Derrick the dude I only gave it five stars because of the valuable lesson it teaches about psychology, and how it controls youth. Google workers really suck at telling what the movie is about. They gave the plot away.
