Benefits from a lively lead performance by the miscast Denzel Washington but doesn't come within light years of the book, one of the greatest American autobiographies.
Rosenbaum. What are you saying in this statement?

I have noticed whenever I see a bad review I don't agree with on rt it is usually from this guy, Ed Gonzalez from Slant magazine, or Ken Hanke from some newspaper in North Carolina who I only know from the fact that he seems to have the exact opposite view on movies that I do. Let me just say that in my humble opinion, that this guy may be very intelligent but he has very bad taste in movies.

I always give a critic slack for having an opposite opinion from my own, but I've never seen a more ridiculous statement from a movie critic than this one saying Denzel Washington is miscast in this movie. It's akin to saying Stallone was miscast in Rocky, or Harrison Ford is miscast as Jack Ryan. I can't imagine Denzel NOT being cast as Malcolm X in 1992 for so many reasons.

Ditto! You should have seen the confusion on my face when I read that line. What? Really guy? Who would have been better? Hmmm...let's see. I got nothing buddy!

This is to depict his life in person which isn't really about the book.
