This is one of the best films I have seen in a very long time. This is one that shouldn't be missed.

10/10 Amazing but be warned you are going to have to pause and calm yourself before continuing thru this movie. At least I had to. To think there are people who carry that rebel flag that signified the suffering of soo many as a sign of pride in the dark history of this country, enough to make your stomach turn and anger to rise.

If Chiwetel doesn't win an Oscar for this....10/10.

Look at all the thumbs down on the comments praising this fantastic film, makes you wonder. The acting is superb! 10/10

This brutal look at American slavery is also brilliant. The tragic true story of a free black man sold into slavery is gut-wrenching and one of the best and most courageous films of the year. Outstanding performances by Chiwetel Ejiofor and the main cast, beautifully shot. Another masterpiece by Steve McQueen. Not everyone will be able to stomach it but it's an outstanding film that deserves and needs to be seen. 9/10

This is the stuff that Oscars are molded of. A gripping, horrifying story that stands as yet another sordid lesson in how sick the world looks when 'human beings' are mistreating other human beings. The acting is unimpeachable, and the drawing out of the plot is orchestrated so as to allow the viewer to get just the right feel of events as they unfold. Some beautiful shots of cotton worms, btw- which I couldn't help admiring. Watch today.

I saw this in theaters and was fraught with an array of emotion watching this film. When the movie ended no one said a word everyone just got up and left it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. I had a headache from the emotional rollercoaster this movie put me through. The things people have, will and are still to one another is by far worse than any horror movie can portray.But inspite of all that at the end I was glad that I saw this movie.It was an amazing story and one I will never forget.

Are u fucking kidding me Ih8socialmedia? No one can MAKE you feel anything without your consent. If you CHOOSE to feel 'white guilt' over this film then you have some serious issues man.

I found this movie to be very interesting. It was well composed. From the storytelling, the art of cinema making by McQueen and the performances of the cast. The way McQueen captures the stories he tells are these moments of silence, as when the camera captures the face. Those are the moments I treasure. The silence, where only the bare expression of the face speaks to you! There may not have been a new telling or unveiling of the slavery and the blood on the cotton fields, but the years of a mans telling as a slave. A man seeking his life, his rightful freedom. Freedom of ones own mind, body and flesh. That is something to watch and never forget.

phew I thought it would never end, it was good, but very slow. I sometimes wonder how these slaves can live in such hostile enviroments. I can well imagine myself murdering those evil sons of bitches and taking my own life before I could live that way. But saying that I bet there were a fair few slaves out there that did just that.

This Movie Is A great movie I give it a 10/10 .... I Love When They Make Movies Of Real Life Stories This Was Someone's Experience So Its Great That It Could Be Shown On Film Even Though It Was Sad At Times It Did Give A Good Incite On What This Person Went Through Day In And Out. Its Great That He Could Share His Story To The World .. I Think That Its Worth The Watch Loved It !!!!

Good cam, both sound and picture. A few blurs in scenes with low lighting, but they were minimal. Overall good movie! Great performances from everyone, almost punched my screen on a couple occasions lol. Don't know why Pitt was cast, didn't seem to fit imo. Probably won't watch it again though, because I usually get ABMS after watching these types of films. Still recommend seeing it at least once. 9.5/10 (-.5 for random Pitt)

Yes, I had to pause it several times. Very intense, and brutal. Great film. Makes you wonder about man's inhumanity.
