From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out.
From the manufacturer
The first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department, Stallworth stumbled across a newspaper ad that would forever change the trajectory of his life. In bold black-and-white was a recruitment message from the Ku Klux Klan, seeking new members.
Stallworth’s colleague, Zimmerman poses as Ron in face-to-face meetings with members of the Ku Klux Klan, gaining insider’s knowledge of a deadly plot. Together, they team up to take down the organisation whose real aim is to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.
Patrice is a committed activist and community organiser that Ron meets during his undercover work.
The leader of the hate group, David Duke, never suspected Stallworth’s real identity or race.

At first assigned to mundane duty in the records room he requests a task to go undercover, his first task is to infiltrate a local civil rights movement, which he does successfully whilst doing so meeting-up with Patrice Dumas (Laura Harrier) who he is obviously destined to fall for.
Now assigned to the intelligence-division he comes across an advert in the paper inviting readers to join the Ku Klux Klan, which Ron decides to respond to pretending to be a White American.......
He convinces the leader of the local chapter that he is a true American patriot sharing their beliefs.........a meet-up is arranged, however being Black he can hardly do this himself so he recruits a fellow officer to fulfill the meet-up Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) who'll have to convince the chapter-leader he is indeed the voice on the other end of the phone
All seems to be going well but a Klan member is suspicious of Flip ......
Will Flip be exposed as a cop, will he and Ron mount enough evidence against the Klan to issue arrest warrants ?
A remarkable story of yesteryear which has an underlining comic approach to the telling.
Certainly worthy of a viewing.
If you have access to on-line films which have not been cinema released in the U.K ...give these a spin -
OUTLAW KING starring Chris Pine....telling the story of Robert the Bruce after the death of William Wallace leading up to and including his victory against all-odds against the English at Loudoun Hill. 8.7/10
Rohan Chand with voice-overs from the likes of Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett and Andy Serkis....telling the tale of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle-Book.
A much darker and perhaps scarier tale than the Disney version with it's memorable songs and not really suitable for very young viewers, however very worthy of a viewing
Other on-line offerings worthy of a spin include BIRD BOX starring Sandra Bullock
To start with there was the occasional tongue in cheek moment but that’s where the laughter stopped.
This is a very sensitive subject matter and there was many uncomfortable moments, and I found it very hard to watch and fought not to stop watching.
A very well balanced movie subject matter and the acting was outstanding.
I don’t ever consider myself politically correct or overly sensitive or even a snowflake but even parts of this touched a nerve.
Overall a very compelling movie
I have purchased this movie and will be watching it again and with others.
Based on my experience of this movie it is worth purchasing the movie rather than renting.
Then it turns out to be another film about racism in the past (which we are all aware happened) and that it still happens now.
It's no different to other disliked beliefs thats are still at large today.
Is this just to get people angry? I dont know, but it doesnt provide a solution.
