Judas and the Black Messiah
Judas and The Black Messiah is the story of William O'Neal who is played by LaKeith Stanfield. A petty thief that after a crime that could have sent him to prison for a long time was forced to be an FBI informant. O'Neal became a member of the Black Panther Party and helped the FBI get to his leaders.
Daniel Kaluuya who Mom said previously worked with LaKeith Stanfield in "Get Out" plays leader "Fred Hampton". The cast other than Martin Sheen plays "J.Edgar Hoover".
The story shows how O'Neal has infiltrated the party and all of the people who trusted them. The ending was really sad. What is really sad is that this is a true story. Also in real life years later the real William O'Neal took his own life.
The movie shows how the Black Panthers tried to better the communities they were a part of and still they were not accepted by the whole community. T
The film was very well acted but it is a sad story. There is no rating because in addition to being shown in the movie theaters it is primarily being shown on HBO Max.
