By failing to embrace the absurdity of the situation, the movie sets itself up as just another summer blockbuster-of-the-week.
Although the humor is variable, the romance is consistent and that allows the film to go down smoothly even if it takes an inordinately long time to do so.
Despite having two inherently likable actors, the characters are so disagreeable that it’s difficult to become sympathetic toward their whirlwind affair.
Gives us a chance to reconnect with characters we fell for in 2004 and discover that, although we may have aged, our affinity for them remains constant.
A compelling film with much to say about subjects like gentrification and race – things it approaches with a mix of wit and seriousness.
Although the screenplay is at times antiseptic, few roles could be better to showcase the capabilities of the talented Kelly Macdonald.
An opportunity to re-examine ‘70s attitudes through the lens of ‘10s perceptions, "BlacKkKlansman" is equally entertaining and disturbing.
Delivers precisely what’s expected from a violent, escapist action film and does so with brevity and shock power.
Unlike mainstream romantic comedies, this one comes with weightier issues and doesn’t fill up its screen time with inane tangents and dumb jokes.
