Review:  This movie could not have come out at a worse time for a country (America) that should be healing. Daniel Kaluuya, personally, is fast becoming one of the more interesting names to watch out for with his current casting choices. I think the biblical play here in the movie was very good for the story and considering that many Americans are still fighting / pushing for fair / equal treatments for many years now, tells of their struggles for many decades (From the movie perspective).

Such occurrences within the country dubbed “leader of the free world” would worry many in the world watching eagerly. I also got the impression that another rising rights activist had been “neutralised” before their time to see some real change. As the movie is based on real life events, I’d keep an open mind here
