A little bit of history
7 July 2001 | by (Richardson, Texas) – See all my reviews

I adore the movie "Our Friend Martin". It talks about the life of Martin Luther King Jr. (which I think is done extremely well in this movie). It shows a video of when MLK gave his "I have a dream speech". It reviews other parts of Martins life, when he was killed, and when his house burned down etc. I enjoyed watching the cartoon version of this. All of the characters in the movie are cool- Martin Luther King Jr., Miles (who loves baseball), Randy (Miles best friend) Maria (smart kid) and Kyle (bully). Miles, Randy, Maria, and Kyle take an adventure through time to meet Martin Luther King Junior and learn about him and that's when the story is told about Martin Luther King Jr. Another thing that I liked about the movie is that Kyle turned from a bully to a nice kid (probably because he was around Martin Luther King a little bit). If you are racist DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE. Other than that I recommend this movie to everyone. It is a great story!!
