Critics Reviews

Variety
The picture comes up short in several departments, notably in pacing and in giving a strong sense of why this man became such a legend.

The New Yorker
The movie is disappointingly impersonal; it doesn't provide readers of the autobiography anything like a fresh vision of its remarkable subject.

Great film
I knew very little about Malcolm X going into this film and watching his constant growth as a thinker and as a person was fascinating. Denzel Washington played the part to perfection, seeming to hit every emotion brilliantly. The biggest draw back...
