Emancipation is thrilling, but the story is a little uneven that can throw you off!!!
What I Like:
-The main premise of this film is what is thrilling, seeing the slaves escape from bondage, and overcoming different obstacles to achieve their freedom was a spectacle to watch, the action was really good as well
-Will Smith playing one of the slaves was really electrifying to watch, his face says it all with everything he had to endure, he was great
The So So:
-The last part of this story was completely different than the first two thirds of it, though the action was great, it really changed the tone of the movie, and made it uneven
-The black and white cinematography was interesting, but in the end, I thought it was a little too dark and distracting
What I Didn’t Like:
-Bottomline, the theme of this film is something we already have seen before, nothing different than what we have already seen
I thought the film was decent enough. I enjoyed the acting, the action, and the thrills it brought. However, the theme of the story is something we have seen before. Also, the unevenness can throw you off a bit. With all that said, it is still a decent watch on AppleTV+, and may be worth your time depending on what you’re looking for!!!
