Ok, I will be the first to admit that I was not bothered with the trailers, but when my mrs told me that the story had more to it, I became interested.
The movie is a bit long… not by much, but there were a few moments of feeling – oh come on, hurry up! But all round it’s a very interesting story. Samuel L Jackson plays a depressed cop, father of a single parent family, with a bitter hate towards interracial relationships. When a newly married couple move in next door, his sights are set on making it clear that a black person and a white person are never meant to be together – all the while using his police status to aid in the intimidation.
There are many moments throughout movie that just enrage and shock you, but the story is gripping and compelling to watch. And to answer the most important question, “is the film worth it?” – Yes, the ending is worth it! If you like redemption 😛
But be warned – it is a heavy subject and story, so go in feeling happy 😀
