Amistad

Description
Cinque leads this long journey sailing from Cuba to America through the slave ship Amistad. The journey begins with a series of challenges and difficulties because the slaves try to make a real uprising in order to release them and erase their bondage. After the slave protest, the slaves were held in Connecticut and their release became controversial. The freed slave Theodore Godson of Sync tries to acquit others, as Theodore recruited Roger Baldwin as a lawyer to help with the cause of the liberating slaves. In the end, John Quincy Adams became an ally of these slaves who are trying to free themselves from slavery for years.

Spielberg seems to be dividing his filmmaking output into two distinct halves: in the summer months cranking out no-brainer dinosaur flicks...in the winter season unveiling his serious artistic stuff to edify the adults and woo the Oscar crowd.

Thematically rich, impeccably crafted, and intellectually stimulating, the only area where this movie falls a little short is in its emotional impact.

In short, a wordy courtroom drama which seldom progresses beyond ciphers, stereotypes and salutary slogans.

As Spielberg vehicles go, Amistad -- part mystery, action thriller, courtroom drama, even culture-clash comedy -- lands between the disturbing lyricism of Schindler's List and the storybook artificiality of The Color Purple.

Fortunately, the dry, courtroom banter is interjected with powerful accounts of the violent, inhumane atrocities inflicted on the slaves by Spanish merchants.

Amistad is the telling of an interesting event in American history, but doesn't draw its audience in to the heart of the story.

Aiming to instruct and entertain, and often struggling to reconcile these goals, Amistad lacks the subtlety of tone and simplicity of form that made Schindler's List one of Spielberg's very best; here, however, every idea and image are too explicit.

Amistad is worth seeing just for people to know about this important story, this moment in history. But from the world's most powerful, successful and famous director, we expect more.

This is the most straightforward, understated, and powerful big-screen representation of the gospel in recent movie history. And for that, Amistad should be recommended to everyone.

In Amistad, an admirable but disappointing effort...[Speilberg] veers between stoic political correctness and mushy Hollywood platitudes.

Halfway into Amistad comes the point where Steven Spielberg pulls the lever, and the stink and horror and bestialities of slavery spill around our ankles. We can't look away.
