Hard to believe some found it slow - I was on tenter-hooks.

America History X is a more powerful and believable story, for Skins is Fictional and unwatchable.

Perhaps I'm less jaded than some of the other reviewers, but I found the story compelling because of the message of hope and hard to watch because of the visceral hatred portrayed.

These two facts, tip the hand of the producers probable motive of Hollywood propaganda, and force me to give it a low rating.

Another recent documentary in a similar propaganda genre was the PBS Frontline: Documenting Hate, New American Nazis, 2018 about a handful of racist losers as a 'major threat' to the country.

How the hell are people giving this 10 stars and saying, edge of your seat and gripping, great acting?

Beyond being portrayed in an excellent way, the character of Bryon was extremely compelling.

An enjoyable biopic, and well deserving of an honest 8/10 from me.

Worth watching .

Based on true events always gets my attention and this one certainly didNot easy to watch, but worth the watch

Well done, dramatic, engaging and eye-opening .

Very intense.

Got pretty bored of it by half way through, stuck it out and, well, not impressed to be honest.

Little bit slow In Places and overly long.

Maybe, the pace is a little bit slow.

An enjoyable disturbing watch .

But this steaming pile of crap movie is just more anti-white hatred/propaganda from Hollywood.

Pretty intense drama .

Fascinating film about the underbelly of white supremacy in our backyards.

Keeps you on the edge of your seat.

The script was tightly written, the direction was solid, and the cinematography was breathtaking.

Jamie Bell was excellent and the fact this was Based on a true story made this even more compelling.

l find these films boring and frustrating.

The emotional turmoil that this presented led to a very compelling narrative.
