1.5 out of 10 Malcolm X
Barry from Dublin, 15 Jul 2009
i thought the film was ok, not great. The first hour was a bit slow and the film was too long overall. I think you will have to have an real interest in the american civil rights movement and the nation of Islam to really enjoy this film. To be honest i wouldn't recommend this film to a friend.

5 out of 10 Malcolm X
Anna from Tipperary, 19 Jan 2010
An extremely interesting insight into the varied life led by Malcolm Little, one of the most influential and memorable characters of the black civil rights movements. Denzel Washington at his very finest.

great story line esp since I'm into the history of civil rights movement. Pace was disappointing. Overall left me thinking I got short changed as its VERY VERY long.

3 out of 10 A bit long and drawn out... but OK overall.
Stephen from Kildare, 25 Mar 2011
Very slow to start, personally the first 1/3rd could of been better. It picks up though, dont start watching after 10 pm or you may be asleep in no time

What's it about....
Filmmaker Spike Lee, actor Denzel Washington and other top talents vividly portray the life and times of Malcolm X. "Here´s a man who rose up from the dregs of society, spent time in jail, re-educated himself and, through spiritual enlightenment, rose to the top," Lee says. Academy Award winner Washington was an Oscar nominee and the New York, Boston and Chicago Film Critics choice as 1992´s Best Actor.
