Movie Review – American History X

Rating – A+

A California neo-Nazi (Oscar-nominee Edward Norton) gets sent to prison for murder and comes out a changed man. But can Norton atone for his sins and prevent his younger brother (Edward Furlong) from following in his hate-filled footsteps? With searing performances and gut-wrenching realism, American History X offers a compelling and anguishing look at racism, family and forgiveness.

Holy $&!# – talk about one powerful performance by Edward Norton. This movie was INTENSE. I was on the edge of my seat the last 30 minutes waiting for the shoe to drop. Most memorable line – “Hate is baggage. Life’s too short to be pissed off all the time. It’s just not worth it”.
There were a couple of scenes that made my stomach do flip-flops, but all in all a great movie.
