If this weren’t based on a true story I would have legitimate problems with the plot. Cop uses his real name for an undercover task? He’s black and he’s trying to infiltrate the KKK, who notoriously does not like black people? The bombing that goes incredibly bad? Don’t get me wrong, this is a great movie, but how in gods name did everyone not end up dead or dying at the end of it?
The last 10 minutes in particular are pretty chilling and nearly unbelievable, but I lived through every single one of the events they played, I know they happened and I know the indifference that many people had to them happening.
