  • I think he's an awesome actor, I really get tired of how some people say that black Brits cant play American black roles. Bruh we all black at the end of the day just congratulate or dont watch. Simple.

  • There has to be more education on black ppl especially in America. The Black Panther party was almost erased from history, the lies told to the ppl of America. They were definitely a force to be reckoned with why because they were really doing the work politics/government wouldn’t dare to do. I truly appreciate this film. This country needs to take accountability already for all they’ve done & still get away with. We need to educate ourselves if our education is already tampered with.

  • The movie was terrible. Kaluyya is waaaay too old; 10 years in fact older than Hampton when he died. William O’Neil was 17!!!! Read that .... 17 years old when he was coerced to join the BP Party and get close to Hampton. The movie would have been far more impactful had younger actors played the critical characters - it would’ve spoken to the real threat and power of the movement. The movement that scared the shit out of J. Edgar Hoover so much he sought to eradicate them....Young adults and teenagers; not grown men as represented by Kaluyya and Stansfield. Mark Clark was 22!! Akua Njeri was 19....there are so many holes in this movie it’s not even funny. Kaluyya looks NOTHING AT ALL LIKE FRED HAMPTON!!! There were times when you couldn’t even understand what he’s saying when trying to imitate Hampton’s tenor, tone and Chicago accent. We gotta do better - the movie was a huge failure!

    TA HARQATA HARQAPäivä sitten
    • Dare I say this, but I agree with both of you in certain aspects. Yes, there were times when I couldn't understand what Kaluyya was saying. Don't know if by holes you were speaking of scene, for ex., where the Panthers go to a kkk meeting and are allowed to Live & received empathy - seems unrealistic. But thought Stanfield was perfect, even resembled O'Neil somewhat. And even tho at one (Minor) point I thought Hampton was in shape and Kaluyya had a gut??? (smile) -but THE ACTING was superb and maybe why the film was so well received by Many !! Plus there are so many films where superb acting transcends looks, age, etc. (eg, Boseman looked nothing like Marshall)

      Joy LJoy LPäivä sitten
    • @TA HARQA I have more than enough capacity to understand what you said, it wasn’t a complex thought. Your first comment mainly spoke on the actors and how they took away from the true story because of their ages, looks, and accents- to which I disagreed. Fred making such an impact at 21 and William O’Neil being 17 is still intriguing even with older actors portraying them, their ages don’t take away from that fact. They could have chosen younger people to highlight their ages, but there aren’t many 17 and 21 year olds with the acting experience to portray figures of Fred and William’s caliber. Seems like you discredited the entire film based off what YOU consider a discrepancy. I did my research.. the film was far from a poor representation of reality!

      Aemoni HughesAemoni HughesPäivä sitten
    • @UCbT2eR9RQcmVK3GZrBKatSQ I didn’t say the acting was terrible. It wasn’t - the film adaptation was all wrong. The fact that his wife and son weren’t consulted makes it even worse. You can’t suspend disbelief when you understand who Fred was. A 17 year old informant in William O’Neil...does that alone not peak your interest and thoughts on the real story?You may not have the capacity to grasp what I’m saying...but go on; you’re entitled to your opinion.

      TA HARQATA HARQAPäivä sitten
    • There was nothing terrible about this film, especially not the acting or casting. They chose actors based on their ABILITY TO ACT not looks or age! It doesn’t take away from the fact that every single actor delivered how they were supposed to. The goal was to bring awareness to the role of Chairman Fred Hampton in the BPP and to portray the government’s intimidation, desperation, and fear. All of those were delivered on screen! Your preference for looks & age over talent & ability says a lot about you.. not the movie.

  • I think this film comes at a time when most Young Black Men need to recognize who they truly are...so it is time to awake from the slumber. God made you to be strong, proud and Fearless. like panthers in a sense. The history of the Panther is: he is peaceful until you back him into a corner, then and only then will he come out fighting to the death. so my Young Brothers and sisters, It is time to stand up and began where you have fallen.

  • I am very skeptical of the authenticity of these foreign immigrant actors when it comes to (FBA) FOUNDATIONAL BLACK AMERiKKKANS in AMERIKKKA playing the parts of our profound revolutionary assassinated warriors just a year ago Daniel made a statement sitting next to his white blonde girlfriend that we should stop talking about race, how quickly we forget. But I haven't. The war against black people has been raging in AMERIKKKA for over 500 years. Black people you better start getting on code and open your eyes to the naysayers and infiltrators. All skin folk ain't kinfolk. B1😎

    • Nah bro. He murdered it to a point where I can not even think of one person playing Fred & besides, also Americans play roles which do not involve their country for eg Idris Played Mandela, Denzel Washington played Steve Biko(if I'm not mistaken) and no one had a problem bro.

  • Black Americans like Fred Hampton have a spirit that is impossible for an immigrant to capture. That is because our culture and experience in this culture is unlike any other in the world. It is a disrespectful for a British/African actor who has said he's "tired of talking about racism" to portray a hero who fought against racism. Oh well, I didn't pay to see the garbage anyway. #NotMyFredHampton

  • As Hampton, he sounds like someone trying to "act black." Doesn't come off as authentic unlike, for example, the leader of Crown, and others. Jive Turkeh. subdued unnatural and stiff. But he is charming and charismatic so those considerations are irrelevant.

  • Two non ADOS people having a convo about bringing ADOS icons to life or to the big screen. Hands off, especially if you don't respect ADOS or say that we don't have a culture. Bring YOUR AFRICAN icons to the screen. The movie flopped just like the Harriet Tubman movie and so will the Aretha Franklin movie because those actors don't respect the culture and history that gave birth to Hampton, Tubman, and Franklin.

  • My eyes start to look around Daniel's room, and I find As a Man Thinketh on his bookshelf. One of my favorite books, by English philosopher James Allen. Most people don't understand how influential that guy is in modern thought.

  • My issue is that English actors are taking roles of African American heroes but have you EVER seen our elite American Black actors portray any of their English heroes? No you don't. Why are they allowed to take parts from American Black Artist? Actually I believe Michael B. Jordan would have made a great Fred Hampton and they resemble each other.

Saying that I am very hesitant to see this movie, not because I don't want to know his full story, but because I am tired of seeing historical African American pain and I am sick of European Americans telling African Americans to get over it.
