    Any colored people appreciate or like this movie? How about a movie about black people building pyramids or the contributions they've made to society? Seems Hollywood can only show blacks as slaves.Slavery isn't Black history,only a fraction.

    this movie was incredible,must be seen. The acting is amazing, and heart-rending. For the people who have posted using the words "gratuitous violence", seems rather strange when you look at what the meaning of gratuitous is-'Without apparent reason, cause or justification' well the violence and sadness of the movie IS the point. The gratuitous violence perpetrated on fellow human beings (especially black people)is a shameful horrible historical story that needs to be told again and again till we are free of racism and hatred of others.I have seen much more violence that didn't actually have a point on T.V. GO see this movie!

    Superb acting, but sadly the movie didn't live up to its potential. The writer, director, editor etc clearly weren't up to the task of sharing this incredible, tragic story. The dragging out of painful scenes like the lynching long past the length needed to make the emotional impact was almost sadomasochistic. Best Actor, Actress, Supporting Actress? Sure. Best Picture? No.

    Great movie, brought me to tear. The director need a little bit of work but the movies was great. It saddens me to know that my ancestors had to endure these things.

    Who in the RIGHT frame of mind would show this??? Control freaks like to see this type of movie. It's got a sick, horrible plot. Rated 14. Should be rated for the Mentally ill,

    The story was realistic. The acting was beautiful. It also reminds us why so many African Americans still fill the emotional chains slavery.
