Trivia

During its UK opening weekend a riot occurred at a VUE cinema in Birmingham, England, in the middle of a screening (speculation as to whether it was Blue Story (2019) or Frozen II (2019)). Over 100 people were allegedly involved, including young teenagers armed with machetes. The area was put under lock-down by police armed with tasers. As a result of the riot, VUE (and later Showcase Cinemas) decided to cancel all screenings of Blue Story and blame the violence on the film and the film's message. Further incidents also occurred during opening night, including a machete attack in Huddersfield. See more »

A Lot of Bad Reviews here...Sad really just Like Boyz in the hood
29 November 2019 | by limbikanidambuleniSee all my reviews

So we get it you don't like a movie coz it made the headlines....but did you even watch the movie.

Hear me; for those who haven't heard/don't know a bunch of kids in a city of Birmingham in the UK brought some knives and had a huge gang fight and one of the Major Cinema chain knee jerked reaction was to pull the movie nationwide.

Now came the reactions, TV, radio, print media everyone was talking about it and mostly white middle class people who had no understanding what black (London primarily) urban kids have to go through in their lives. Instead of understanding the core of the story and what it was addressing they point out " how loud the movies goers were" or "how London black kids's music this and that".

The reality is knife crime is high in the UK, Gun crime in America NOT JUST black people kill each-other ALL RACES DO! Just coz you don't get what challenges a certain ethic group goes through don't give you the right to be critical and prejudicial or dare I say it ...., which sadly it's undertone has muddled the message the makers of this movie were trying to get across.

So watch THEN JUDGE OR DON'T either way.....

It's sad 2019 and it's like when Boyz in the hood came out last century....SAD!!
