The Review: Imperium

Imperium 6/10

My cousin Jasmine had mentioned this movie called Imperium to me starring Daniel Radcliffe so we watched it the other day. He plays an FBI agent that goes undercover to find out about some white supremacist groups that have this poison and may be using it to start a race war. Its based on a true story so he is in almost every scene. He is just a dorky ass dude who has his boss played by Toni Collette ask him to do this and helps train him on how to be trusted and get information. It involves changing where he lives, shaving his head, and getting a big ass tattoo on his arm which I would have been like “Yeah...but no.”

He meets with different aspects of these guys ranging from just run of the mill crazy racist skinheads to guys who know what they are doing with dangerous chemicals to guys that are just faking the funk for fame and popularity. This movie could have been so much better if not for some of the exaggerated acting during intense scenes. Plus, everything seemed to work out way too perfectly. I'm not sure how it all went down in real life but it was super clean in this movie. This was not bad at all but I wish it was handled more seriously without all the quick cuts of racist shit happening in history.
