Watching this in a totally white audience was an experience. The little titters and nudges when 'make america great again' was mentioned, or about police officers shooting unarmed black people, or even one becoming president; to the we won mentality at the final phone call.
Then the deathly silence with the current footage being shown. I think quite a few people realised it's not just references.
These people still exist today.
They still have their rallies.
They still have their marches.
They still murder in uniform.
And they still hold these abhorrent views.

I think I even heard some people sniff away some tears right at the end once they saw the footage and heard the words of people who were there.

Enjoy the film; enjoy the jokes (it is a funny film) but make no doubt the characters shown still exist.

BlacKkKlansman is an undercover film, because beneath its brilliant sheet of light-hearted biopic lurks a dark satire of racism, all lives matter and Trumpism. It will sneak up on you with its dated 70's feel and then grab you with its arresting pertinence to contemporary issues. Watch this film or be doomed to repeat it.

BlacKkKlansman is so good that I forgot it was a Spike Lee film. More seriously, it even outshines 2006's Inside Man and the closing newsreel sequence literally had me sobbing in the cinema (my over-the-top emotional responses are just one of the many reasons I always sit in the front row). Not only one of the best films of the year, this is clearly the most important film of the year.

This is an incredible film. Not only is it a thoroughly entertaining film, it also comes with some hard-hitting messages. With the film taking place in the 1970's, I loved how it was able to tie a lot of things to present day, and make some slight jokes along the way as well.

I believe it's probably Spike Lee's best movie in years. Although the movie may be a bit long for some at 2 hrs 15 min, I was not bored for one moment. I highly recommend it.

I was expecting a lot more comedy, from what I had seen. While there were some good moments, that made me laugh, the film overall was a little slow. I was expecting more cunning and comedy, that both the plot and poster lead on: a black man infiltrating a white supremacist group... Sounds very interesting and hooked me in, however, that's not really what it's about. More like manipulating, not infiltrating.

Adam Driver did an excellent job as always. Nothing spectacular or noteworthy about this film, and I actually liked Imperium better, for an undercover-white-supremacist film. This film felt oddly more political, but perhaps that was the point.

sorry didnt like this at all this was a total letdown on so many levels and i did expect better than this ugh

It simply isn't a good movie.

Yes, the issues still exist today - and if you replace black with muslim: They exist in the entire western hemisphere (Ironically creating more muslim extremists).

Great message, but in my oppinion (Seeing from other reviews I'm pretty alone in this) bad delivery.

I even had to watch it twice, since I fell asleep after an hour the first time.

People bad reviewing this film are just white racist 'muricans...

Weak... I was expecting some comedy and action... Instead I got baited into a liberal shit trying to make a terrorist organization look bether than the KKK... both were shit, we all know that... come on... please, I just want to enjoy good movies again...

Week, slow, not even close to being as funny as they try to make it seem in the trailers. Seems like there’s a miss leading political agenda at work here. I hung in there for 35 minutes and could not take anymore of the snooze fest

Everything about the movie is great except for the cheesy music/soundtrack. They use just one track throughout the whole movie, and it becomes very obvious when they alter it's tempo (slowing it down) to try and fit drastically different types of scenes and moods. But other than that, it's a great movie.

fukn liberal bullshit,funny as it was all democrats in the KKK!

The plot is very interesting and it's hard to believe this is based off a true story. It can be funny at times while not taking away from the story or the serious issues it handles. The last few minutes of this movie are powerful. This is long but is paced well and flows. The cinematography and editing were great. There were some really cool shots. John David Washington and Adam Driver are both fantastic. And shoutout to Topher Grace who does a good job playing a terrible person. I haven't seen many Spike Lee "joints" but this makes me want to see more of his movies.

Was a good movie.
Big shame the f’ed it up with disgusting racist insinuations against Trump.
An edited ‘clip’ at the end to make it look like he supported despicable people. But not showing the whole video, that would show that they are lying.
They didn’t mention that the whole KKK misery was from Democrats.
Why not?
It was the Democrats who instigated all the racism, and still do today.

The trailer made this look like more of a dramatic comedy when, in fact, it was a straight up drama with a few comedic moments. And I think it's all the stronger of a film because of it. This is some difficult content to portray, especially since so much of what you see portrayed in the 1970s is eerily similar to the rhetoric of the MAGA crowd of today. I had some real difficulty sitting through some of the Klan-centric scenes, and that's exactly how one should feel during them. These were some atrocious people doing hideous things and spewing gross hatred relatively unchecked. John David Washington and Adam Driver gave great performances as the two halves of Ron Stallworth. And as the film closes out by showing the parallels of the Klan in the 70s to the rallies of recent years... I was actually physically bristling with anger and sadness that these types of people still exist (and thrive) today.

it was okay. This important story was intriguing but i think it suffers from a lack of delivery for such a serious subject matter. I haven't read much about whether there was a certain style Spike Lee was reaching for but for me it just came across as almost a parody - the costumes felt like they came from the wardrobe of the 70's show...(maybe Topher Grace got a special discount for costume hire) The film lacked some substance...was it a comedy? it was a real mish mash. (Even the score which was wonderful) didn't fit the tempo of the celluloid. I would have dug it if somehow we had the style of American Gangster or The Deuce and the grittiness of Mississippi Burning. The real footage at the end was a ballkicker and is widely available on you tube but maybe it was added because the actual movie lacked the impact the real footage portrayed. What i think i am trying to say is if Blackkklansman did its job properly we wouldn't have needed the news footage at the end....at least my man Prince soothed me in the credits...may he rest in peace.

Wow, the movie was funny, captivating, and beautifully shot. The ending blew my mind. Never forget Charlottesville, and never forget the black sisters who built the Black Panthers. The women were the main organizers and members of the organization. Don't you ever forget it. The movie would've gotten 10/10 if it hadn't been cop propaganda (ACAB) and if the Jewish character would've been played by a Jew for once, and not just a white man with a big nose. Anyways, great movie!

Highly entertaining flic, even if the heavy handed message felt like it was sponsored by Hilary Clinton and her comrades.

I know the film is based off a true story, i would have liked to see more action, more twist and turns, but whatever. It was alright.

If the film had a bigger budget, then it could been a lot better. But Spike Lee did an excellent job with the budget given.

An entertainingly cathartic movie, but one with much resonance and power. A small triumph, not only for the cinema, but for #BlackLives Matter too.

This film is powerful in it's message, and scarily prophetic.
Washington acted fantastically in this.
Had some good humour and tension throughout.
However the pacing is inconsistent.

8/10

Quite a good movie. Gets real real right at the end, though. Maybe too real.
They lent quite heavy on the modern rhetoric of racists which was not how they talked at the time (eg "America First" wasn't really a phrase used much back then). I understand why they did that though, makes it all feel more familiar.
Definitely worth a watch.

A sobering look at racism in America, entertaining and thought-provoking. The director of Do the Right Thing at his best!

This is the kind of movie that you CANNOT say you disliked. Still, I'm sorry, the movie had its plotholes, clichés and predicted parts. Still #UKBLM #MinoritiesLivesMatter #UyghursLiveMatter

I am afraid that Spike Lee has a lot of work ahead of him and that the second part has been filmed these days of May-June 2020.

Pensaba que sería una comedia un poco absurda , y sin embargo me encontré con una historia muy seria (con algún toque de humor), que me hizo pasar muy buen rato.

Spike Lee is back in action with sharp claws suppprted by an outstanding cast and performances by Adam Driver and John David Washington.

Good movie about an unbelievable story. Movie keeps you engaged with a very interesting subject matter.

Great acting, powerful and timely. Would have liked to see a little more action/suspance though.

Good underline jokes, and some beneath lines of the moment. Nothing new, black vs white and KKK. Not an drama, is history and present arguments.

BEST MOVIE I'VE SEEN IN 2018!

loading replies

Thank you, Spike Lee... for not being afraid to give it to us. I'm sure plenty of people will be offended by the language, yet Spike doesn't shy away from it. Sadly, when Quentin Tarantino does something similar (think Django), people immediately want to discredit him for the harsh language used. The movie is certainly deeper than my quick commentary gives it credit for. I definitely recommend this movie (for those that can handle it), as Spike does as only Spike can do.

It's a poignant, relevant take on America then and now, as well as being hugely anti Trump. The end segment is quite moving. But as a crime comedy thriller, it's not anything special.

One of Spike Lee's best in a long time. Tells an engaging true life story, that draws some disturbing parallels with the modern day. He peppers a few showy, cringeworthy director flairs throughout, but it's not enough to bring the movie down. Especially with an ending that's soo unexpected and haunting.

This film is quite simply spectacular.   While the title reveals the main conflict Spike Lee has managed to create a film that has many layers that left me thinking about it for days.   While the events happened decades ago the struggle and the themes very mirror what is going on today in modern America.   

Also, while I've seen several of his movies for the first time I see Adam Driver as a true-blue lead in Hollywood.

Solid flick. Definitely worth a watch. rent it on Redbox and decide to buy it after.

This movie brought some ambiguous feelings to the surface. All along the whole story I got an absolutely absurd satire which really unbelievable to think about it was based on true events. Then, in the final frames I was torn apart with those images and I was totally lost how to categorize this movie and which part has the greater impact on me after I stand up from the cinema chair.
I'm certain only one thing which is Spike Lee never failed me once I always gained something from each movie of his I have watched so far.

Its crazy to believe that this movie was inspired by real events. Of course, they probably took some liberties, but still, its amazing to believe that something resembling this film happened in real life. Even though its set decades ago, it feels very current & has a particularly strong end to the film that makes you really think about where weve come from & where were going to in the future. I haven`t seen many Spike Lee movies, but I was impressed with his direction & I thought the cast was really good, particularly John David Washington (son of Denzel) & Adam Driver. Definitely one to check out.

I was glad to see Spike Lee make a comeback and he did the storyline justice. BlacKkklansmans is based on true events. Spike has modernize the movie while keeping it in a 70’s era. The storyline touches on racism, equality, ignorance, and truths.

The question is what truths and knowledge will you derive from watching this thought provoking cinematic feature.

Spike Lee at his best
