I don't know where y'all getting this "Random guy" logic from. Fam with the Goldmouth wasn't no random. And so what they made a bunch of stops, that wouldn't have changed anything. He just sold them out, simple as that unfortunately. What compensation y'all think he woulda received for actually helping them?? Other than simply doing right by his ppl - which he should have done. Y'all forgetting about the bounty price ???? $250G's apiece.. The white woman at the house said it herself, "thats enough to pay off our mortgage" so wutchu think a "LOST" n*gga gonna do.....

Oh and for the record, I caught the early premier at the Howard theater with the Q&A. The director 'Melina' said the guy who sold them out was originally written to be a "wigga" who was trying extra hard to be down. They felt it was too obvious... a last min decision was made to make him a black guy.
Lena Waithe confirmed what they are saying about the guy.

The movie pushed me off... they could’ve been to Cuba a day earlier if they stopped trying to check things off they’re bucket list lol.

“Ooh let’s stop and ride a horse we may never do it again.”
NO . Pretty sure Gold tooth dude lied about having access to a plane to get them there and get the reward

Very Entertaining movie, more geared for the black woman, not that great of a actual film writing wise, gorgeous visuals, great use of music, excellent character development.

7.5/10
I felt the same.some of the writing was just bizarre,and the whole damn scenario in itself was bizarre but it was still very entertaining

That part of the movie is non sensical.
Old white dude literally gave him directions to nowhere

Being that black dude pulled up on them with a shotgun, it would seem like he was some random dude who was turning them in regardless

The ending was white ppl fan service lmao

I feel it cheapened the actual message they could’ve spread

Esp with the freedom of them fu*king while little boy literally threw his life away to be “immortal”

Black people don’t wanna be immortalized we wanna be and we want to thrive

People keep saying there are small holes but it’s really not if it affects the main portions of the film.

Enjoyed the movie for what it was. With all his talk of legacy, I would have ended it with him getting shot up while she escapes to Cuba, not knowing he knocked her up. The ending shot would be her on the beach with their baby (his legacy)

Ending was dumb... I need Lena to explain her reasoning for a lot of her decisions. This film was not unapologetically black as advertised. She apologize to white people a few times.

Good question....

but if you peeped the film is easy to see the narrative is about black solidarity, defying oppression, and the a lot of the themes, music, perspectives, etc are concepts found in the black art theater not mere western cinema products....

In a perfect world we get the happy ending but I knew it wasn't going to end that way because as history has reminded us black people in america that if sh*t looks too good to be true its probably not. Plus I dont know how many publicized nationwide manhunts ended with the fugitives getting out the state let alone the country.

It wouldn't be a happy ending, maybe bittersweet. You don't need to see everything. It's ok to leave it up to the viewer. Wondering if they would have dropped the manhunt or not is going too deep into it.

They ending... the kid shooting the cop... the white saviors/Underground Railroad... the black dude at the end.

Its a movie, she can write what she wants... none of that sh*t had to be in there

Queen & Slim was absolute 🔥

Period. 10/10 quotables for days

“I ain’t gone bend the world. As long as my woman remembers me fondly.... That’s all I need..”

Slim was TALKIN.

“I want a guy to show me myself. I want him to love me so deeply, I’m not afraid to show him how ugly I can be..”

The writing in this movie so 🔥

If you don’t walk outta Queen & Slim appreciating your black woman even MORE than you already do.. You wasn’t paying close enough attention.

Just saw it a few hours ago and honestly what a movie. Didn’t watch most of the trailers going in so everything seemed fresh all throughout the movie

A lot of themes are played with it but you can expect that with this type of movie and speaking of movie I feel like this film legit had every concept of what makes a movie and nailed it ( From set locations , wardrobe , actors ) and by far my biggest thing I loved was the cinematography. From the bright colors & the way they framed shots watching it all was such a pleasure. Also I said it to the girl I was with but it was very fresh to see a movie in this day without use of cell phones , I felt like that little touch allowed the movie to breathe a bit different

That ending tho , I knew everything couldn’t be roses but the way it felt like they yanked the chair right from under us was really great. I hear complaints that it reinforces stereotypes to other races who watch but I feel the opposite.

I feel like the only thing they missed out on was if they included a joke referencing Get Out once they got to the white couple house. Wife or Husband asked Slim if he wanted some tea and he coulda been like nahhhh I’m good

Dope flick I’ll give it a 9/10
