Critic Reviews of "Malcolm X"VarietyJanuary 06, 2010
Spike Lee has made a disappointingly conventional and sluggish film in Malcolm X.Chicago ReaderJanuary 06, 2010
Benefits from a lively lead performance by the miscast Denzel Washington but doesn't come within light years of the book, one of the greatest American autobiographies.NewsweekOctober 18, 2008
Lee and company have performed a powerful service: they have brought Malcolm X very much to life again, both as man and myth.TIME MagazineSeptember 23, 2008
Lee sketches Malcolm's life colorfully, if by the numbers. But he falls victim to the danger of movie biography: he elevates Malcolm's importance until the vital historical context is obscured.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
It plays surprisingly safe as a solidly crafted trawl through the didactic/hagiographic conventions of the mainstream biopic.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
An ambitious, tough, seriously considered biographical film that, with honor, eludes easy characterization.Groucho ReviewsJune 04, 2012
Spike Lee called 1992's Malcolm X "the picture I was born to make," and star Denzel Washington referred to the titular civil-rights leader as "the role of a lifetime." They're both right...[Blu-ray]Combustible CelluloidMarch 04, 2011
The perfect combination of epic and personal, intimate and spectacular.Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
Insightful and well-rounded portrait of Malcolm X.Empire MagazineJanuary 06, 2010
Lee's film suffers from message over substance and is slightly tedious as a result.Film4September 23, 2008
Visually and dramatically, Lee pulls out all the stops, but it's Washington's performance that really energizes the film, and he's an exhilarating presence throughout.EmanuelLevy.ComDecember 25, 2006
Lamoclm X may seem conventional by Spike Lee's standards, but as a biopic of a controversial historical figure, it's superior to the nobility of spirit of a movie like Gandhi, for example, and Attenborough's high-mindedness.
