The Hate U Give (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Hate U Give tells a fascinating story of a police shooting and its effects on the wider community, with strong performances at its core and a message that sticks with you after the credits roll.  It’s a shame then that the film feels so sluggish at time.  At over two hours, this is obvious Oscar bate and would have benefited from a shorter runtime with a few less obvious narrative choices.  Not a film you can enjoy for sure but certainly one with a strong message to tell that can be admired from a far.

Best Bit: Strong performances
