As he witnesses countless atrocities - against himself and his fellow slaves - Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.

I think this film will be remembered for a very long time. Not only because of the violence, but also because of the historical importance it gives us. The brutality and lack of morals, will definitely stay with us for a long time. It's the stuff of legends, the racism and sexism that it exposes. If I had to rate it on its own, I'd give it a 10, but that's not how it is. It has the kind of art that is difficult to appreciate in an ordinary time. It will be talked about for a very long time. It will be forgotten in the blink of an eye. The people that made this film should be given a special award, it is that important. I'd recommend this film to everyone, if you're looking for a movie that will make you feel proud of your country, you'll love this film.

When I first heard about this movie, I thought it would be a terrible movie that would only interest a select group of people. I was wrong. It was not that bad. The acting was amazing, the story was powerful, and the soundtrack was perfect. I loved this movie so much that I went to see it again the day after its release. I haven't been able to get into it since. If you are interested in history and aren't offended by the fact that a few men committed atrocities, this is a must see.

I just saw the Birth of a Nation, and it was really great. I had read all the reviews, but my mind was still undecided. I finally watched the movie today and it was amazing. I saw it for the first time in the theater and I was very impressed. I had to remind myself that it was a movie and not real life. The actors were great, the story was wonderful, and it really was a story that is still going on. I was very glad to see it and I am really glad that I saw it. I will be buying the DVD, and I will be telling my friends about it. I can't wait to see it again. It was a very good movie, and I can't wait to see it again.

I have always loved this movie because it shows us the world from a black and white view and it's very interesting to see the country from that view. I think it's a very good movie and I would like to see it again. If I had to pick one movie that should have won a Oscar, it would have to be Birth of a Nation. Birth of a Nation is a movie that is very important in our history because it shows how bad white people are. There are so many facts that they can't ignore. I think it's very important to see this movie because I'm proud to be black. And I think this movie is a must see. It's a must see movie.

There is no doubt that this film is based on a true story. The main character is a real person. The film is an accurate portrayal of slavery in America, and it should be viewed by everyone as an accurate depiction of slavery in the United States. The film was adapted from an original story by Thomas Dixon. The director and screenwriter have done a great job at getting the truth out of the film. The acting was fantastic. This was a movie that I could see over and over again. I highly recommend it to everyone.

This is the film that a black man can relate to. The story of the enslavement of Africans and the British Empire, is well documented. The cast is fantastic and the story is great. The film was shot beautifully and very well. It is a must see for all.

When I first saw the movie I didn't think it was the greatest movie of all time. The original is definitely the best and the remake of this film was not the greatest. I think the director should have given this movie a better and deeper explanation of why he decided to kill that black child and the leader of the slave class. But overall it was an amazing film that made me think. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a great story, great acting, and great action. 10/10.

While I'm sure that some of the reviewers are thinking "This movie is about slavery? What does that have to do with anything?" I'm not really interested in the social commentary of the movie, I'm more interested in the historical aspects of it. After all, it's a movie and it's history. So I'll put it this way. I thought it was well done, though the way the story was told left me a bit confused. I understand that it's a movie and not a documentary, but the way the story was told left me a little confused as to how it would end. In the end, I think it was a great movie. It's not for everyone, but I think if you watch it with an open mind, you'll find yourself becoming more and more interested in it as the movie goes on.

I can't imagine a better way to end the year than this one. I'm sorry I didn't see it at the theatre, but I'm glad I saw it on DVD. It is just an amazing story of the true life of Nat Turner. I loved how he took his brother's punishment and ended it all. The way he came back to the scene was also very moving. I also loved the way it showed how they treated the slaves. I also loved the fact that the slaves would tell him when they were happy or sad. The way he did it was just amazing. All of the actors did a great job, especially the mother. Her role was so strong and very moving. I'm glad I saw it and I hope it doesn't get overlooked. I can't wait to see it again.

In the end, the greatness of the film is in how it speaks to the heart of America and the real racism that existed in America. The majority of Americans that lived in the 1930's didn't like what they were being told to believe, and they saw the truth of what they were being told about their government. There are many references to this, and in fact, when watching the film, I was reminded of the quote from The Black Panther: "We are not the slaves of the past, we are the slaves of the future". I'm not sure how this quote could be more applicable to this film, as it is one that speaks of how to bring the past to the future, and how to keep the future going. I don't think there is a better movie about racism than this one, and it is not a film that just points out the obvious, it is a film that speaks to the heart and soul of our country. This is truly a brilliant film, one that is sure to bring a tear to the eye of any American who has been in the midst of racism. The acting in this film was absolutely superb, but I think that it is the story that truly brought out the best in all of the actors. I think that the performances were all excellent, and the film is a great addition to the Oscar winning 'A United Kingdom' which is one of my all-time favorites. I hope that the Academy recognizes this film as one that will be remembered for generations to come. I think that there is no doubt in my mind that this film is a must-see, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be reminded of how important it is to not be a racist. I give it a 10/10.

This is a film about slavery and the slave owners who fought for the rights of black people. It is based on true events. It is very graphic and it takes a lot of courage to do this movie. I was surprised by how accurate this film was. There are not many films that show the horrors of slavery and black people in the 1800's. It was a good film for people who have not seen the historical facts before. There were a lot of racial slurs and graphic scenes. I don't know how many people would be offended by this movie but it was very graphic. I think it would be a good film for young children. It is also very accurate. This is a good movie to see in the theatre or on TV.

As a British film, it was important that this film not have been produced in America. The character of Nat Turner was a fact that had to be accounted for in history. Many things have been changed from the original story. I could see no connection between the events of the film and the actual events. The play was written for a small audience. The film would have been much more effective if it had been written for an audience of the size of the audience in the theater where I saw it. It is a film that anyone can understand and appreciate, and the actors did a wonderful job. The script and direction of the film were good, and the actors did a fantastic job. The only problem was that the director, Oliver Stone, was a leftist, and he seemed to have his priorities and bias towards the left at odds with the facts. I could not fault the film, but I could fault the director. The story of Nat Turner was a tragedy, and no matter what the director did, the film would still be a tragedy. I know the story, and I know that it was not a story that should have been made into a film. I know that the story was not a historical fact, and I know that it was an event that should not have been made into a movie. I felt that Stone should have made the film for a conservative audience, and it would have been much more effective. This is not a film that the average viewer will enjoy. It is a film that is not for the average viewer. The only reason that the film has been praised so much is because of the liberals and the left. I felt that the film was an accurate depiction of the events that took place in that time period, and that the events were portrayed accurately. I could not fault the film, but I could fault the director for not being conservative enough. Oliver Stone should have made the film for the right audience, and the film would have been much better.

This film tells the story of Nat Turner, a slave who fought for the Confederacy and fought for the North. The film is set in Virginia, and the slave state is depicted as something that is not about race, but about people and race. There are some graphic scenes, some scenes that are just painful to watch, and some scenes that will stick in your mind for a long time. The portrayal of slavery in the film is also done very well. In my opinion, it is one of the best films I have seen. It was not as realistic as I expected, but it was realistic enough. It is one of those films that you have to see to believe, and I have seen it a few times. I rate it a 10/10.

This movie is a masterpiece. Its stunning cinematography and excellent directing, along with some truly inspired acting, make this movie one to watch over and over. Every time I see it, I'm reminded of how much of a role its played in my life. The acting is superb, and it really makes you feel the anger, fear, and helplessness of the characters. The setting is also really well done. The way the civil war is depicted is both accurate and beautifully done. The acting is superb, but this movie is not only about the acting. It's about the people. And how those people acted. This is an absolutely perfect movie. One that I can't wait to watch again. 10/10

I have not seen this movie yet but I have seen The Birth of a Nation on TV. I saw it with my wife and I couldn't wait for it to come on. I will not say anything about the movie other than it was amazing. It is very graphic and it shows the brutality of slavery and it shows that the slave owners were human beings like everyone else. This movie is very powerful and it shows the good of America and how it was founded. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone. It is an amazing movie and I recommend everyone to see it.

I'm not sure how to say this without sounding like a ripoff of my fellow MRA reviewers but this is by far the best film I've seen this year. In many ways it is one of the most important films of the year and one of the best of the year. This is a film that hits home in ways that no other film has. To put it bluntly, this film is the anti-apartheid struggle. What is it? The epic story of the slaves and the freedom movement. The film is at once uplifting and frightening. It is an amazing film to watch and the fact that it is such an extreme story is what makes it so powerful. The film is riveting and even though the film has a very brutal and gritty story, it is also moving and affecting. To be honest, this film is like no other film I have seen in a long time. I don't think I have seen a film so honest and so powerful. I have to say that this is the best film I have seen this year. If you haven't seen it yet, watch it. I know I will be recommending it to my friends. The best part is that I didn't pay any money to see it. I just wanted to see a great film and I got it. 10/10

To tell you the truth, I don't think this movie is for everyone. I am very surprised at the good reviews it got on IMDb. I was expecting a cheesy movie with a few good scenes and a lot of crying. This movie has nothing in it to do with that. It is about the brutality of slavery and the end of slavery. The acting in the movie is great, the dialogues are funny, the characters are unique and the story is very interesting. To sum it up, this movie is a must see, but not for everybody. Don't watch this movie if you are easily shocked or if you have nothing else to do.

I would say that this is the best movie I've ever seen. If you've seen the trailer, then you already know the entire story of the movie. This movie is about the battle between the KKK and the American civil rights movement. The Klan used fear to intimidate and terrorize people, and were the source of the major conflict in the movie. The civil rights movement was also very anti-climatic, but it was not because the leaders of the movement were not truthful. If anything, it was because the civil rights movement was a failure. The Klan wanted to "cleanse" America of the idea of equality. The people who were targeted by the KKK were the "colored people" who were discriminated against in a racist way. The main thing about the movie is that it is based on fact. It is a documentary, but it is based on fact, not fiction. The other thing about the movie is that it was very interesting. The scenes were very vivid, and the acting was great. I think this is the best movie I've ever seen, and I recommend it to everyone.

I have been a fan of Jodie Foster ever since I saw the first trailer for this film and then heard that it would be released in the summer of '84. I was totally thrilled and wanted to see it. I went to see it the day it was released and I have never been so moved. I would go so far as to say this film is not only one of my all-time favorite movies, but one of my top ten. This film has been overshadowed by "Dances With Wolves", "The Deer Hunter", "Saving Private Ryan", "The Green Mile", "Apocalypto", "A River Runs Through It", "Three Kings", "Troy", "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", "Barry Lyndon", "The Outsider", "The Last Picture Show", "The Conversation", "2001", "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers", "The Shawshank Redemption", "The Big Chill", "The Godfather", "The Patriot", "The Wizard of Oz", "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen", "The Unbearable Lightness of Being", "A River Runs Through It", "All the King's Men", "Thelma and Louise", "Two Weeks Notice", "The Shawshank Redemption", "Hanna", "Erin Brokovich", "The Last Picture Show", "The Grapes of Wrath", "A Sound of Thunder", "Romeo and Juliet", "The Sting", "Hannah and Her Sisters", "Clash of the Titans", "The Ten Commandments", "All the King's Men", "The Graduate", "A Man for All Seasons", "The Godfather", "The Insider", "The Outsider", "Gone with the Wind", "The Wizard of Oz", "The Great Dictator", "Kundun", "Les Liaisons Dangereuses", "I am Sam", "The Grapes of Wrath", "A Fish Called Wanda", "Gone with the Wind", "The Godfather", "The Godfather: Part II", "The Dark Knight", "The Shawshank Redemption", "The Godfather: Part III", "The Exorcist", "The Godfather: Part II", "The Godfather: Part III", "The Godfather: Part IV", "The Godfather: Part V", "The Godfather: Part VI", "The Godfather: Part VII", "The Godfather: Part VIII", "The Godfather: Part IX", "The Godfather: Part X", "The Godfather: Part XI", "The Godfather: Part XII", "The Godfather: Part XIII", "The Godfather: Part XIV", "The Godfather: Part XV", "The Godfather: Part XVI", "The Godfather: Part XVII", "The Godfather: Part XVIII", "The Godfather: Part XIX", "The Godfather: Part XX", "The Godfather: Part XXI", "The Godfather: Part XXII", "The Godfather: Part XXIII", "The Godfather: Part XXIV", "The Godfather: Part XXV", "The Godfather: Part XXVI", "The Godfather: Part XXVII", "The Godfather: Part XXVIII", "The God
