Fantastic Biography
11 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Simply admire Morgan Freeman( Malcolm X), as a great actor with outstanding talents and a person who puts his very heart and soul into any role he tries to portray. In this film, Morgan stars as a dynamic African-American activist who fought for racial equality during the rough and tough 1960s. Unfortunately, this film only portrays the final twenty-four hours of the civil rights leader's life. Morgan Freeman made you feel the great power that this crusader had within his very soul and how he truly loved his calling to help the poverty stricken people and to bring his race into the light of the entire world. If you like Morgan Freeman and a cast of great actors, please don't miss this film.
