i didn't believe anthony hopkins to be a black man. Thus the flashbacks to his youth with his biological black family felt like a different movie. This is where it falls apart. Somewhere closer to the 30 minute mark.
You spend another 20 minutes after that confused. ...Enjoying the disjointed past and present parts of the movie in and of themselves but thinking someone is playing tricks on you and actually spliced together 2 different movies.
The last 20-30 minutes are anti-climatic as all can be. As by then nothing happens that really hasn't already happened or been said.
The acting is good enough. But the parts don't all fit together.
btw, even if you can believe Anthony Hopkins to actually be a black man, which I couldn't, it doesn't feel like the movie needs him to be one.
The fact he was wrongly fired because of overzealous political correctness and his wife passed away partly due to this aggravating some condition of hers was more than enough to buy into the anger he had.
To suddenly have this whole Anthony Hopkins is actually a black man back story dropped onto your lap was a light switch flick you don't see coming and not in a good way. But in a, did I accidentally change the channel sort of way because this doesn't feel like the same story.
