I'll keep this short, it's a great movie that reminds us that nothing much has changed in the good old USA when it comes to race and relations. Spike and crew did a fabulous job bringing the story home and the up to date ending should be felt by any decent human being.

Spike Lee must be cash-strapped to make a movie these days as he obviously had to pander to certain elements to get this farcical adaptation onto the screen. The over-the-top representation of the differing elements in the story made it farcical and unfortunately laughable; whereas a more serious approach to the issues and the people involved would have made viewing this film more legitimate and a reasonable approach to a troubled history.
I was looking forward to Klansman, it had an interesting premise and could have been a funny, well written comedic satire. Unfortunately that potential was thrown away when Spike Lee took the original events and tryed to spin it to confirm his own political views.
Now don't get me wrong it's perfectly fine if you want to make a movie with a political message, but if you do so you should at least make sure the dialogue is well written, so that it feels as though it's a character speaking and not the director. But apparently Spike Lee doesn't understand this which has resulted in most of the characters just being Spike Lee himself.
Another big issue I had was the jokes seemed to get old really fast. This was because most of them amounted to "Ha Ha he's actually black" or "Look at how stupid these white people are".
The movie was also incredibly bland as far as the cinematography goes, as most shots were just shot reverse shot. Almost nothing visually interesting happened at all, until the end. But at that point the shots were just so bland and uninteresting it just felt forced.
The one plus side in my opinion would be the performances, because although the dialogue is not well written the actors do a great job delivering their lines with sincerity. Especially Adam Driver, but overall this film was just a boring, poorly written mess.
