Judas and The Black Messiah on HBO Max February 12th
Judas and The Black Messiah is a historically accurate film, that is powerful and insightful to watch during Black History Month. Regardless of what you know about the events that occur in the movie, Writer and Director Shaka King tells an important story about a shocking time in our country. Be prepared to be entertained and educated about the racial inequity that is part of our country’s history that tends to be forgotten.
FBI informant William O’Neal infiltrates the Illinois Black Panther Party to keep tabs on their charismatic leader, Chairman Fred Hampton. A career thief, O’Neal revels in the danger of manipulating both his comrades and his handler, Special Agent Roy Mitchell. Hampton’s political prowess grows just as he’s falling in love with fellow revolutionary Deborah Johnson. Meanwhile, a battle wages for O’Neal’s soul. Will he align with the forces of good? Or subdue Hampton and The Panthers by any means, as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover commands?
I give Judas and the Black Messiah an 9/10. Inspired by true events, this movie is powerful and thought-provoking. With a strong and talented cast, you will be drawn in for the entire 2 hours. Movies like this are rare to see these days, and should be produced more frequently. You can watch this movie in theaters or on HBO Max.
