The Synopsis for The Hate U Give (2018) 1080p

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right.

The Reviews for The Hate U Give (2018) 1080p

It's a turf war on a global scale.Reviewed bybob-the-movie-manVote: 6/10

I saw this as part of a "Secret Cinema" event by Cineworld cinemas in the UK. That's where you go to see a pre-release movie without knowing what it is going to be. It's an interesting litmus test for a) a movie's upfront marketing appeal (how many people get up and walk out when the BBFC title appears) and b) the "grab 'em early" appeal of the movie itself (how many people get up and walk out during the first 20 minutes of so).

I'm afraid this movie didn't do very well on either a) or b) at my showing: about 20 people left immediately, and more tellingly about another 20 people left in the first half hour. There's a reason for that: the first half hour of this film is plain awful!

Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg) is a sixteen year-old resident of Garden Heights, a black neighbourhood in a US city, where she lives with her younger brother and step-brother. Their parents Maverick (Russell Hornsby, "Fences") and Lisa (Regina Hall) are devoting all of their energies to "break the cycle" and get their kids out of the neighbourhood and off to college and better futures. As such, the kids attend not the rough-house local school but a much more upper-class establishment: there Starr has to play a different role, with links to her origins being kept hidden even from her white boyfriend Chris (K.J. Apa).

But all that changes when her boyhood friend Khalil (Algee Smith) is shot and killed in a police stop-and-search. As the only witness, and with Khalil linked to local gang lord King (Anthony Mackie), Starr's anonymous world is about to get a national focus shone onto it.

Man... I hate voiceovers in films and always have. So I really hated the start of this film which has Starr narrating ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING ("Blah, blah, blah.."): no audience discovery is required. It also starts with a sort of highschool romance vibe, but not one that's well done with kissing ("Blah, blah, blah..") while the local Mean Girls look on ("Blah, blah") then with Starr's friends trying to act street ("blah, blah") while Starr tries not to be street, all to the constant droning of Starr's voiceover ("Blah, blah, blah.."). (I never walk out of movies.... but I can kind of understand the rationale of those who did).

Fortunately the voiceover then largely recedes (it only pops up with occasional staccato "thoughts", before storming back for a "blah, blah" finale). And with the shooting, the film takes on a much more interesting slant, giving Amandla Stenberg a chance to really shine.

I have commented on Ms Stenberg before: she was the only really good thing in the recent "The Darkest Minds". Here she exhibits a tremendous range from the delighted (her smile is radiant and seems astonishingly unforced) to the heartbroken and furious. There's also a really strong supporting cast with great turns from Hornsby, Hall, Mackie and Smith. Hornsby in particular I found great as the Dad desperately tutoring his kids in military (but loving) fashion to avoid his mistakes.

For me, this seemed to be a surprisingly atypical view of a black ghetto-living family. A scene set in a diner is genuinely touching at emphasising the loving and close-knit nature of the Carter family.

Where I will struggle here is in trying to interpret my overall feelings about the film. As a white, older male person I have three degrees of separation from Starr's perspective. And these are undoubtedly difficult issues to juggle with. The riots that happened recently in towns like Ferguson ape the activities on screen uncomfortably. Your sympathies might lie to some degree with the unfortunate white police officer (Drew Starkey); sympathies supported by the views of Starr's police officer uncle Carlos (Common): until Starr points out via a punchy question that you REALLY shouldn't feel like that... and your views are brought up with a jolt.

Aside from the rights and wrongs of the incident, there's a frustrating dichotomy at play in the film with black and white communities wanting to be treated equally but never wanting to be treated the same. "You don't SEE me" wails Starr. "I see you" replies Chris (as if James Cameron was directing!) But does he really? Without colour, I do not consider myself to be remotely capable of fully understanding Starr's perspective on life. It made me want to read the source novel by Angie Thomas to try to get better insight.

Directed by George Tillman Jr., it's undoubtedly a mixed bag, but I came down in the end on the side of it being good rather than bad... it has certainly had me thinking for a couple of days. The clumsy voiceovers and story elements in the opening and closing scenes mask a number of parallel and interesting story strands that generate conflicting thoughts about the state of race relations in today's America. Jackson sang "It doesn't matter if you're black or white": and it really shouldn't, but actually in some quarters, it clearly still does.

Such an important movieReviewed bychrisgarrigaVote: 10/10

Watched the movie with my 14 year old daughter. The movie was engaging from the start. Amazing story and strong performances, deliver a topical and important message. Bring tissues.

A Perspective FilmReviewed byebkamikazeVote: 8/10

I believe this film creates an opportunity to open the eyes of someone not privy to our perspective. Sometimes they have to see these issues play out in front of them. A story or speech may not reach deep enough to connect you to the heart of people who have suffered loss and live in a near impossible situation. If you just see it as a I HATE WHITES movie, you've missed the point. Dig deeper.

Do I have some criticisms, of course. Some scenarios are obvious slaves to plot progression. One argument could be that only 1-2 characters had a complete arc and that some questions were left unanswered. Well, I agree. That's art imitating life.

I believe the dialogue regarding the title of the film was clever and introspective that I haven't been able to get it out of my head. It also asks me to form MY OWN opinion of the phrase's meaning. So: Mission Accomplished.

I'd say the acting was pretty good. Not the biggest fan of the language but unfortunately I know I'm in the minority there. Every character performed. It was exciting to see Anthony Mackie in this role. I think he sold it. Seven's actor stole his scenes. I believe that Common was allowed him to play himself, because a farther reach may not be believable. Amandla is something special. She is such a star and I can't wait to see what's in store for her.

Im proud to have seen it and it has the opportunity to open the eyes of some so blinded by their own privilege 8.5/10
