“This was a frustrating movie for me because it was at times brilliant, yet there are a few things that could have been done better.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSpike Lee shows why he is revered as a writer director, with beautiful dynamic shots, intercut with smooth jazz. It is a charming presentation. Also the dialogue is interesting and feels natural and spontaneous. The combination of strong writing and acting makes for interesting conversations.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe things I found frustrating was the lack of a focused or interesting story. Also Spike Leeu0026#39;s performance was very weak compared to Denzelu0026#39;s and he should have stayed out of the movie. He actually took a lot of the attention from the other characters and tried to make the movie about himself.”
