About the Movie

Filmmaker Spike Lee, star Denzel Washington (the New York, Boston and Chicago Film Critics' choice as 1992's Best Actor) and other talents vividly portray the life and times of the visionary leader. "One of the decade's best and most important films." (Arch Campbell, WRC-TV/Washington D.C.) One of the most charismatic and politically controversial voices in history, Malcolm X burst into the public consciousness with a radical perspective on race relations in America. His inspiring and enlightening ideologies touched and continue to influence the lives of millions. The New York Film Critic's Circle awarded Denzel Washington Best Actor for his role in what Newsday calls "an extraordinary movie...powerful and compelling. Denzel Washington's performance is a tour de force!"

Great Movie

Great movie, Washington is just incredible (as always) and the only downside to the film is it did not touch enough upon Malcom's eventual come around from his own racism and his move, although slow, toward being a bit more open to the thought that at least not all white people are bad, no small feat considering the group he belonged to at the time. Highly recommend this movie.

This Movie Is Deep !!!!!

One of Denzel Washington's best roles Period !!!

One of the 10 best Movies of the 90's

Definitely one of the greatest epics ever made on one individual. From the set pieces, costumes, music and acting, this movie takes you into a world that no one but Spike Lee could direct at the time. Some scenes with music are forever etched in my mind because of the beauty of the cinematography that they were placed in. (My Prayer and A Change Is Gonna Come) Spike Lee in top form and one of my favorite movies of all time.
