American History X (1998) Rated R

A former neo-Nazi tries to prevent his younger brother from going down the same path as him. Starring Edward Norton, Edward Furlong, and Beverly D’Angelo.

I was not impressed with this film. Neither the story or the characters pull you into the narrative. The film revolves around racism, but it doesn’t dig very deep into the theme. Then you have plot holes that don’t make sense, and  you have characters who do things that don’t make sense. The plot, overall, is just apparently that racism is bad and you shouldn’t be a delinquent. The acting wasn’t bad, but the script was dreadful. I’m surprised this film is top rated because, to me, the film is not worth a watch.
