Movie Reviews

Incredible film
12/29/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's a pity this film will be overlooked while the market is being flooded with war movies and a host of other films that cheapen humanity. Not only was it refreshing to see men portrayed in non-stereotypical ways (deep, sensitive, strong and wise) but doubly wonderful that the film featured black men in these roles. I was deeply moved by the story and it will stay with me for a long time to come. It's a story of true courage with not an ounce of exploitation or voyeurism. Stories like these have the power to heal and I'm grateful Antwone had the courage to share it with us."

"To be honest, I was a little hesitant to see "Antwone Fisher," the directorial debut by Denzel Washington. Movies directed by actors can be little more than self-serving vanity projects that merely say, "Hey! I'm an actor! And I can also direct! I'm so multitalented!" You can say the same thing about this movie, but you would be wrong. While it's a little sentimental at times, "Antwone Fisher" is one of the most heartfelt and genuine movies of 2002. Derek Luke is the title character, a young and hotheaded seaman who gets sent to Jerome Davenport (Washington) for psychiatric evaluation following a heated brawl with another soldier. From there, the two begin a painful journey that involves discovering the roots of Fisher's anger and, more important, the broken family that left him behind. It's often disturbing to see the psychological abuse Fisher suffered at the hands of his elders, and his strong will and tenacity make him all the more respectable. Luke gives a decidedly low-key yet strong performance and holds his own admirably against seasoned pro (and two-time Oscar winner) Washington. But if I have a slight bone to pick with this movie, it's that its plot has a bit of a "heard it before" feel. Several movies ("Good Will Hunting" comes to mind) have already featured a story about a troubled kid whose life gets turned around by an older mentor. Yet, "Antwone Fisher" earns its four stars thanks to its classy, non-flashy direction by Denzel and a solid performance by Luke."
A story worth telling - I loved it

"I saw this movie on New Year's Day and I found that Denzel Washington did an outstanding job in bringing this film to the big screen. The actor D. Luke was phenominal. Now about the movie, I hope that Antwone Fisher's motivation for telling his story is not lost and that people, especially those in the foster care system, find hope. Antwone's story proves that even the worst of circumstances and situations can be overcomed. I cried and I was overjoyed but mostly I was impressed that such a film would be told so that the world can see that there are a lot of Antwone Fishers in the foster care system that story needs to be told. I would also hope that this movie allows us as human beings to check what kind of people are raising our children especially our boys. This is definitely a must see."
Breath-taking, original, heartfelt, unbelievable, amazing...

"this movie is definitely one of THE BEST movies of the entire year...maybe even the 21st century...it's based on the true story of ANTWONE FISHER, who grew up in an incredibly unstable home, and had a very harsh childhood...it shows how he overcame what most would call the inevitable path toward a not-so-bright future...he ended up doing something honorable and worthy...it is a very touching movie, and i definitely had a tear or two in my eye...BRAVO!!! to Denzel Washington for his very successful directing-debut and two thumbs way up to newcomer Derek Luke who gave a surprisingly, one of a kind performance.....this is definitely one of my all time faves!!!"
