Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream and it wasn’t to have a great movie made about him but I’m sure he would be pleased with this one. David Oyelowo did the role justice, it was too bad he wasn’t nominated for this part. It has this crazy fast start, right at about 5 minutes in something jarring happens and then there is about 1/3 of the movie after that has a pretty lazy slow pace. Once that’s over it kicks it into high gear and it had me hooked. So if you can make it past that first third of the film, you’ll really find this movie entrancing. It was a terrible time for America but Dr. King worked really hard to make it a better place, and I salute him.
