Director Spike Lee’s dramedy was produced by the team behind Get Out and offers another provocative exploration of American race relations. In the midst of the 1970s civil rights movement, Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first black detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department. He sets out to prove his worth by infiltrating the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan and convinces his Jewish colleague (Adam Driver) to go undercover as a white supremacist.~Augustine Chay
Ron Stallworth, Jordan Peele, and the cast discuss working with the iconic Director
I love Adam Driver in this. Such a versatile character. Mr. Washington did amazing. Great cast. I can see why they received so many nominations. One of my favorite gifts I received for Christmas since Im a huge Adam Driver fan.
This movie Blackkklansman is an incredible true story and I was unaware that this had taken place in our history. Thanks for the awareness.
This review is from BlacKkKlansman [DVD] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This Spike Lee landmark classic looks GREAT on 4K!
I bought this film blind based on my brother's recommendation... and I'm happy I did! The story - based on a true story: a black cop infiltrates the KKK. These 6 words sold legendary Hollywood director Mr. Spike Lee to make this film. It's funny, edgy, timely, suspenseful, and so much more! Mr. Lee directed Denzel Washington's son John David Washington, and he along with Adam Driver, Laura Harrier, and company deliver the acting goods.
On to the 4K part of the review: Mr. Lee is a classical filmmaker, and as such, his camera type of choice is film, not digital. The benefits of a native 4K scan really pop in the video presentation. I have a 4K projector (Optoma UHD51A), and in playing this film, my 4K UHD Blu-ray player (Sony UBP-X800) automatically switched to 24 frames per second, prompting my projector to display at 2160p (4K) 24Hz mode, giving this presentation the most authentic movie theater experience I've witnessed since I installed my new home theater system. The Dolby Atmos 7.1 audio (surprisingly!) delivers and then some. With this film being a mostly dramedy picture, I expected little to no audio to come out of any speaker other than the center. I was pleasantly mistaken. Scene audio sporadically came out of the left and right channels, but the real treat was during the auditorium scene when Corey Hawkins' character was speaking to the audience, and his voice from the podium came out of the center speaker, while the in-movie audience reaction/dialogue came out of the surround speakers, putting the viewer in the audience of Kwame Ture's speech.
The film is great, and even if you don't have a 4K player yet, pick up the 4K copy as it does come with a standard Blu-ray to "future-proof" this film in your collection. Highly recommended!
This movie is based on a true story, one that I had never heard of, and is told exceptionally well by the amazing Spike Lee. John David Washington and Adam Driver are great, and the film deals with some real world issues that were present in the 70s yet reflect a lot of current societal issues.
"Blackkklansman" is Spike Lee's triumphant return to provocative filmmaking. Having spent the last decade alternating between celebrity documentaries (films on Michael Jackson, sports legends Kobe Bryant and Jim Brown) and genre oddities (a remake of a Korean horror thriller "Old Boy", the mash-up musical of Greek drama and Chicago gang violence "Chi Raq"), Lee seemingly lost his edginess. "Blackkklansman" proves that maybe he was just taking a break. The story is based on the true exploits of African American police detective Ron Stallworth, played in a star-making performance by Denzel's son John David Washington. He successfully infiltrates the KKK in the 1970's over the phone pretending to be a racist wannabe, then combines with Jewish undercover cop Flip Zimmerman (a terrific Adam Driver) to actually join the Klan, even getting so far as to meet with David Duke (Topher Grace in a scary/funny performance). The story is told with brashness and breeziness, in a style that Lee perfected in his seminal 90's films "Do the Right Thing," "Malcolm X," and "Jungle Fever." By turns suspenseful, satirical, and violent, the story has to be seen to be believed, but see it you should, especially in the political climate we live in today.
Spike Lee and Jordan did something with this movie
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
When I heard Spike Lee and Jordan Peele were working on this was like wow!! Other thing impressed me main character is Denzel son is chip off the block. Did decent job. Also other cast made movie worth checking out. Movie is something we all need to watch. The ending shown problem our country divided due to racism. Movie has dark comedy and seriousness.
