MUST SEE Posted by: from: Kansas City, KS on Seriously, one of the best movies I've ever seen. The realism behind this movie is so great, it's sad that stuff like this actually does happen. There's so many strong moments in this movie, and seeing the evolution of Norton's character is mindblowing. The themes and prejudices in this are awesome and leaves the watcher in disbelief at how their portrayed. Simply a remarkable film, and it's hard to say much of anything without giving anything away. But there are scenes from this movie you will not forget.

Great Movie Posted by: from: Houston, TX on Very good movie. Edward Norton plays a racist and gets put in jail for killing a man. He learned this from his father. Edward Furlong plays his little brother and while Ed Norton is in jail making changes in his life and seeing that a color of a man's skin is not something to hate his little brother is following in his footsteps in being a racist and getting involved in the wrong crowd just as he had. It is a great movie and story. It can be a little rough at times because of the racist remarks, language, and violence, but it is a very good movie.

Now this is a movie! Posted by: from: Pineville, NC on Ed Norton, Ed Furlong, great acting by both. This film takes you to the extreme side of hate. There's not a movie like this anywhere else, and never will be! Great acting, great plot, great ending, great everything. You should have this movie in your collection, if you don't, you need to buy it. 5 stars all the way around.

this movie really is two thumbs up Posted by: from: joplin mo on this is a very educational movie, how the life really is like in cali. It is violent, and kids prolly should not watch it without a gaurdian, but should be seen by every person eventually.

A must see for any race-conscious Americans Posted by: from: on This film - driven by yet another breakout, disarming almost paralyzing performance by Ed Norton - forces the viewer to challenge their racial, social, socioeconomic and political views about the history of race, and hate, and prejudice, in the contemporary US. I cannot watch this film without crying at at least one of several climactic points. Ed Norton shatters all boundaries and exceeds even his own exceptionally high and well-earned, firmly set expectations of what it means to deliver oneself to a character in a role - and the director has done a seamless job of delivering a piece of cinema that should be shown in high schools throughout the US, without too much exposition, but very clear (shot in black and white, appropriately) mis en scene techniques - that will move, challenge, and change the viewer. A must-see for any young adult, period.

Incredible Film Posted by: from: IL on American History X is one of those movies that stays in your mind forever after seeing it. The storyline, cinematography, and acting are all top notch, and it really acts as a social commentary on race issues in America. Edward Norton's performance was brutally believable as a Racist, and sincerely touching as an older brother trying to steer his younger sibling from a dangerous path. I recommend this film to anyone who would like to watch an instant classic, or just anyone looking to be entertained.

Best Movie ever Posted by: from: Rochester, NY on skinhead Derek Vinyard (Norton) gets put into jail for killing two black youths that were trying to steal his car. During his stay in the bighouse, his younger brother Danny (Furlong) follows his hateful ways and joins the nearest skinhead clan. While in jail, Derek goes through many changes, and comes out with a new outlook on life. Now, he wants to relay his newfound enlightenment to his impressionable brother, before it's too late.

my favorite edward norton flick Posted by: from: on this is a great movie. great actors and great story. its touching. it focuses and racism and racist groups such as white supremacy groups and the problems and death that arise from the violence due to the racism. edward norton plays an astounding white supremacy leader and does a very good job and is such a loving character. it is a sad movie in the end but it is a 'lesson learned' movie. so good a must see. instant cult classic.

Reminding movie about racism Posted by: from: on This movie is hard edged in terms of its reality of what being a skinhead involves. It's a life lesson...BUT...this movie also shows what's necessary to change your ways from the wrong way. You definitely need to be strong to watch this movie but it is a great life lesson for those who may have come across similar situations in their own life.
