    It's a movie about the Rosewood massacre of 1923, which was a totally horrifying racial violence. I was stunned the whole time and learning that it's a true story gave me nightmares.

    A good iteration of a dark and forgotten story of American history.

    Overall entertaining, even if watching the theater release feels like the length of a directors cut. Very well cast and acted. Definitely a Hollywood big budget take on true events of our nations horrific past in relation to racism and oppression of black men, women, and children living in post civil war American south.

    One of the most memorable historical event in a movie. But, unfairly underrated as customary US style when trivia movies goes higher when the best ones go unnoticed - Sad !

    John Singleton directed this true story about a small town owned by black folks from Florida whose entire community is burnt to the ground after a local white woman accuses a colored man of rape.

    A compelling story of a tragic massacre that flags under a lack of propulsive direction and narrative, and comes apart towards the end with stylised action movie heroics.
