Movie Reviews

  • this is one of the best movies of the year, collapsing America's past and present into one awful continuous moment; Shaka King sees everything clearly, and carves it onto the screen. It’s a hell of a thing
    4.5 of 5 by Norman Wilner [NOW Toronto ]
  • Shaka King’s message from the past is a vital, heartbreaking film for now. Daniel Kaluuya, LaKeith Stanfield and Dominique Fishback rise to its call beautifully
    4 of 5 by Kevin Harley [Total Film ]
  • Shaka King's film, features a typically brilliant performance by LaKeith Stanfield; The story is infuriating - not in the way King presents it, not at all, but in its details. The manipulation of justice is heartbreaking

    4 of 5 by Jimi Famurewa [Empire Magazine ]
  • bolstered by major performances by Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield, “Judas and the Black Messiah” makes the Fred Hampton saga feel as urgent -- and tragic -- as ever; the actors make "Judas and the Black Messiah" such an incendiary watch
    Review rate : A- by Kate Erbland [IndieWire ]
  • Black Messiah's center of gravity has to be a Fred Hampton you can't look away from, and Daniel Kaluuya -- alternately raw, tender, and incendiary -- duly electrifies every scene he's in
    Review rate : A- by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]

    4 of 5 by Julian Roman [MovieWeb ]
  • a searing portrait of a uniquely American power struggle; Shaka Shaka King's movie is packed with great performances, but its secret weapon is in telling a story about how individuals relate to power dynamics
    Review rate : A by Matt Goldberg [Collider ]
  • a historical thriller with an urgency that speaks even louder more than half a century later; This is boldly assured, issues-based filmmaking with real heart, and above all with a saddened sense of how the past maintains its hold on the present
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
