I honestly only watched this movie because it was on my Oscar 2017 highlights and it was the only movie I haven't watched from this list. Fences tells the story of the Maxson family and that's pretty much it.
This movie is one of the most boring movie experiences I've ever watched and by far I guess the worst movie of 2016. The only three redeemable things about this movie are Viola Davis' and Denzel Washington's performances and some life lessons that Troy tells his children. The story of this movie is just about their life and that's it. I understand that it tried to be realistic but unlike Moonlight where that story was told in an interesting way that catched my attention and made me interested in what happened next, in this movie there is nothing interesting happening or something that might catch my attention and make me wanna watch the rest of the movie. It also tried to have bad-ass dialogue and be a dialogue-driven movie like Pulp Fiction but that movie was memorable for it's interesting storyline that had multiple stories intertwine by the end and more importantly for it's dialogue which was catchy either with it's constant language abuse or weird circumstances. Here there is nothing catchy or interesting or entertaining at all. The rest of things are just average like the score which had only 2 cues in the whole 50 minutes i watched or the cinematography which was average as was probably necessary in the movie.
Boring movie with only 2 good performances and some life lessons, weak score, weak and uninteresting story that made me sleep after 26 minutes but on a rewatch the next day nothing improved and I decided to stop wasting my time with this movie at the 50 minutes mark. 4/10
