Malcolm X Reviews
The movie may have merits and I'm not denying there aren't good scenes, but I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed it. When a movies so long that it's split onto two separate discs, there's bound to be moments where it drags. And boy does it drag.
As Muslim I was also provided by an unexpected message. Religious sects and parties are susceptible to corruption of its members and message and would normally be built upon some truth to reach the masses. At the end its not God whom they serve but their own goals and interests. Malcoom X was among the few who realized this corruption and broke free from it but everything comes at a price! May Allah reward him for what he's done.
This is also true and would apply to other religious communities.
This story could really use a new more serious treatment.
