Powerful. I remember reading about the orchestrated assassination of Fred Hampton back when I was in highschool. The blatant despotism of the American authorities that are set up to "serve and protect" is never not horrifying. The film translates this enlightening story to an absolute effect. It's well-paced and incredibly tense, like watching a bomb defused and anticipating the ensuing explosion. The final ambush scene makes for one harrowing conclusion. Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield are magnetic.
