Unsentimental, non-glamorized, and unclouded by the usual overlay of rose-colored nostalgia, this is a raw but rewarding motion picture.
As an elegy to a perfect fusion of directorial mastery and an actor’s indomitable screen presence, it’s hard to imagine something more memorable.
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 solid follow-up to "The Equalizer" and an effectively understated entry into the 2018 summer movie sweepstakes.

Proves that this kind of adrenaline-fueled spy thriller isn’t dead – it just needs a strong leading man and an accomplished director.
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.
Mixes factual elements with a few “Hollywood touches” to provide a compelling thriller.
