Incorrect Display of Events

Interesting that a movie based on "true events" can be so horribly wrong. A quick research into some of the events and things that took place (Such as Timothy McVeigh) proves that the movie is blatantly lying. Is there a reason why they're attempting to push the liberal agenda of demonizing the KKK while downplaying the actual issue of Islamic Terrorism worldwide? Extremely disappointed with all the actors, director and writers for this. They could have taken the truth and portrayed that on-screen however they decide to take the opposite route and ruin what could have been a decent movie.

Victimhood - a little spoliery

This film should have been a bit better than it is - it's not bad, not bad at all - but it's just not quite as impact-full as it should be. Some of the dialogue is quite deep and the films message is pertinent - hint, it's not really about neo nazi skinheads, well it is, but it's not really. It's about the true heart of fascism, beyond the history, myths and conspiracy. What is interesting is that it makes you realise that victims are more likely fascists than bullies - that any group that claims to be the 'victim' is probably nurturing some level of fascism. It's interesting food for thought but, as I mentioned, isn't quite as powerful as it could have been - just needed that little bit more.

Thoughtful thriller with a great script

This movie is a thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat, but it's also character-driven and works on an emotional level. In addition, it's thoughtful about what drives people into fascism and finding the humanity even in those who dehumanize. It's a timely take on what's going on in our country and I recommend you see it. Daniel Radcliffe and Toni Collette give excellent performances, as does the supporting cast. The script follows a classic "hero's journey" and yet does so skillfully enough that it doesn't feel contrived. If you've ever wondered why people are drawn to white supremacy, why it's dangerous, and what we can do as a country to combat fascism, go see this movie.

INTENSE and factually relevant.

Prepare yourself for a tense, wild ride. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire film. The film score was perfection and I witnessed amazing performances by Radcliffe, Colette, Numrich, Trammel and Letts. You don't want to miss this film. To the writers, directors, producers, cast and crew: thank you for making this film. It was clearly well-researched and extremely well executed. Everything from the KKK wedding to the swastika cupcakes are based in the sad, true reality of existing hate groups in America. The timing of this release couldn't be better as we have a former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan running for Senate.

10/10 in my book

As a movie buff myself, I'm not going to lie I've downloaded almost every blockbuster as well as some better B+ movies since in I was 18, I'm now 26. I have reputable job as an Information Technology Specialist for the U.S. Army but that doesn't sway my beliefs or opinions either or. This movie I believe should be compared to classics like, "American History X", the facts and opinions portrayed in this movie gave me a sense of self belief and concluded a lot of my thoughts on the racial tendencies we have today. In some way or another it gave me some closure to the opinions I've had with the most current racial events. This movie really opened my eyes to the world we live in and what goes on. So my 10/10 stands strong.
