Movie was great from a cinematography standpoint. Score and visuals perfect. However, this movie paints us in a light that reinforces stereotypes.
1. Stupidly tragic decisions from the very beginning.
2. Our community banding behind criminals foolishly.
3. Our youth looking up to criminals and committing crimes because they admire what was done.
4. We are gonna sell each other out.

The writing could have been better and had a story that painted us in a better light without reinforcing stereotypes. Non-minorities will leave that theatre with the same beliefs they had from the beginning.

The director out here calling this a "revolutionary film". Nah this ain't it. You have got to change the narrative and I don't think this helps at all.

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.

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

It was meh. A lot of unrealistic situations.

n*ggas on the run and decide to get some food and eat it on the back of the truck lol Going horseback riding and hitting up a club while on the run. It was silly

They also reinforced a lot of black stereotypes(outside of Queen and Slim). The pimp uncle, the father calling his wife a hoe and cursing out his son, the young boy k*lling the black cop for no reason, the black mechanic who blamed Queen and Slim for what happened, and the typical black man who sells out his people for money.

The acting was solid, but the script was far from "pro black". The endng was predictable and bad too. I'm just tired of seeing black horror stories.

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)

Saw it last night. Dope a*s movie. So many layers of perspective on police and public relationship

If anyone is from NOLA and sees this, you quickly realize the settings in other states (Georgia/Florida) were still filmed here

Very well made... Few holes, but the pacing is great and the character development is A 1. Don’t want to give anything away but basically a black Bonnie & Clyde set in a Trump administration era.

It’s dope.

On the real bro, I was just reading how everyone is calling this top 5 of the year, must see, and revolutionary. But from the the viewing of my wife (she walked out), me, and damn near everyone in the theater it’s the complete opposite. The cinematography is great; the score is great, but the writing is horrendous. And to see the sh*t in the script of how characters were supposed to be portrayed and the changing of certain characters let’s you know that this movie is not for us. Not taking anything away from the actors, but they could’ve kept this story.

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

It was weak, not good or bad just a weak movie. I think the issue is it was poorly written and that’s due to lack of drafts. In an interview they said it didn’t really change much from the rough draft. That shows up to me, I’ve written sh*t and then rewrote it for a year, the story changes for the better. The lack of direction was also pretty bad, I mean it’s a first time director with subpar material... meh.

When you hear mostly about cinematography and music you know the movie is pretty bad. I’ve seen so many of the interviews for the film and none of what’s discussed show up in the actual project.

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.
