Maybe this premise is just too big to write a successful script around.
I really didn't like this. For me it never quite feels like it accomplishes what it wants to... which is a lot. The basic premise is an engrossing one, which makes the film very watchable. But, in the end I am just not sure the film has a message more nuanced than racism bad... which is true but has been covered in more interesting ways in film. I found the first twenty minutes a bit of an uncomfortable waste and the ending nowhere near as cool or impactful as it should have been. Keke Palmer and Common do quite well but, for me, not well enough to save this script that is a bit all over the place.
Not for me, but qive it a try.
