Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Lee's movie is anything but minimalist. It is bursting with character, color, incident and music, including a militant rap number performed by Public Enemy. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Mar 3, 2015

Fresh: There's only one way to do the wrong thing about Do the Right Thing: that would be to ignore it. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Mar 3, 2015

Fresh: Spike Lee combines a forceful statement on race relations with solid entertainment values. – Variety Staff, Variety, Mar 3, 2015

Fresh: Do the Right Thing is complex, bravura movie making. It is also hugely entertaining, since fortunately for us, Lee's seditious method is to use humor to carry his biting message. – Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times, Mar 3, 2015

Customer Reviews

One of the best films ever made.

Most people are skeptical about seeing "Do the Right Thing," as I was. But than you see it, and the rest, as they say, is history; it is a masterpiece. Spike Lee has crafted a film that is emotionally draining, but ultimately rewards the viewer in the end. It's not as preachy as you may be lead to believe, so give it a chance, and, though this can't be said about very many films anymore, it will change your life.

This is one of the greatest film of all time

And is one of my favorite films dealing with serious issues

A Must See

Spike Lee's best film ever created. It's ability to travel across time with powerful messages about race, hate, and love; along with hilarious comedy, crowns this film an automatic Classic. It was the first movie I bought with ITunes.
