Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good BlacKkKlansman gets some laughs out of its inherent absurdity but it's mainly an opportunity to re-examine ‘70s attitudes through the lens of ‘10s perceptions. If you don't like Lee's oeuvre or are offended by openly political movies, this isn't the film for you. Others will find in BlacKkKlansman an opportunity to consider and reflect on the questions that Lee isn't afraid to pose.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent This is not only one of the year's best films but one of Lee's best as well. Juggling the somber and the hilarious, the sacred and the profane, the tragedy and the triumph, the director is firing on all cylinders here.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Lee proves he's still as fiery and meaningful a filmmaker as the man who made "Do the Right Thing" and "Malcolm X" back in the day. "BlacKkKlansman" is a sobering, affecting commentary on right now, yet it's also a thrilling celebration of real brotherhood – and not one of hate.

NY Post Full Review
Excellent The tale is so bizarre that it's sometimes comical, and often disturbing. The unrelentingly intense "BlacKkKlansman” can be very hard to watch. What he's made with "BlacKkKlansman” is an important tribute to small-town heroes — cops, activists and good neighbors...

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It's the early 1970s, a time of great social upheaval as the struggle for civil rights rages on. Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, but his arrival is greeted with skepticism and open hostility by the department's rank and file. Undaunted, Stallworth resolves to make a name for himself and a difference in his community. He bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.

Posing as a racist extremist, Stallworth contacts the group and soon finds himself invited into its inner circle. He even cultivates a relationship with the Klan's Grand Wizard, David Duke (Topher Grace), who praises Ron's commitment to the advancement of White America. With the undercover investigation growing ever more complex, Stallworth's colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), poses as Ron in face-to-face meetings with members of hate group, gaining insider's knowledge of a deadly plot. Together, Stallworth and Zimmerman team up to take down the organization whose real aim is to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.
