Some issues but worth the watch!
28 November 2019 | by boycecliftonSee all my reviews

Queen and Slim was directed by Melina Matsoukas and stars Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith. One major issue I noticed once it hit the halfway point was how slow the pacing was. It just started to drag a lot and added some unnecessary scenes. Also most of the decisions the characters in the film made make no sense whatsoever. However Daniel Kaluuya gave a great performance as this character as well as Jodie Turner-Smith in her role. This movie is no where near flawless but it is definitely enjoyable and worth the watch. It's a 7/10 from me!
