A powerful film. Recommended, especially considering current events. It is profoundly sad and it will be eye-opening for many, especially those whose minds are not already shut.

The sadness about this movie - other than the very real content it is based on - is that the title of the movie may mislead people as to what it is about even though, while saying that, I acknowledge that the title is fitting. I didn't know that much about the Black Panthers and less about Fred Hampton or "Wild Bill." What is portrayed is another tragedy from the turbulent Sixties in America, a relevant tale for consideration in today's world.

Powerful and important movie! Well made and very well acted! Daniel Kaluuya is amazing as Fred Hampton! He blows up the screen and his intensity just punched me in the gut in every screen! In a similar fashion, but in a smaller role, Dominique Thorne, as Judy Harmon, is brilliant in her own way! The Judas in this movie made me want to puke, and what he did in real life to this man, and his family, was reprehensible. The real life clips at the end, and the information about what happened to the people in this movie, were incredibly intense. Bravo to the filmmakers, bravo!

Absolutely fantastic. I knew a bit about the life of Fred Hampton, and this movie inspired me to learn more. The performances are superb, particularly Daniel Kaluuya as Hampton, and the plot is exciting without being overly dramatic. Highly recommended.
