Jesse Owens and his battle against racial discrimination at home and abroad

Racial discrimination both at home and in Germany are in the forefront of this movie so the races become a battle of good vs evil. The victories are that much more moving because of that. Lots of pointed references to how discrimination was in the U.S. before and after the Olympics.

The supporting cast are good. Jeremy Irons is effective as the questionable Avery Brundage who does some good by pushing for participation over boycott but also possibly being bought by the Germans. Carice Van Houten plays the infamous Leni. Strangely, instead of being shown as a Nazi propogandist, she is shown as a hero here pushing for including Jesse in her film. The actor who plays Goebbels is totally wrong for him. Google the real one. Stephan James as Jesse Owens doesn't overact and keeps his performance dignified. Jason Sudekis is good in a non comedic role as the coach.

Effecive use of effects to recreate the stadium and crowds.

A fascinating and well made movie

A sports movie that once again shows the triumph of the human spirit and how everyone is equal when the gun goes off.

"A man has to present an image to the world." Jesse Owens (James) is a college track star. His coach Larry Snyder (Sudeikis) pushes him to be the best he can be. Jesse pushes himself on and off the track to be the best person and athlete he can be. Everything is going as he wants, he becomes a record breaking collegiate champion with his Olympic dream in his sights. The only thing stopping him is his conscience. With Olympic gold in his grasp Jesse must decide if he is willing to compete in Germany, as an African-American, with Hitler watching. This movie is in my wheelhouse. Not only is this a sports movie but its a true story as well. I knew the basics of the Owens story, but this movie goes deeper into the pressure put on him from both sides of the Nazi debate. Even knowing how the movie will turn out the drama was gripping enough to keep me interested and wondering how he got to where he was at. Sudeikis actually does a really good job in a non comedic role and is almost the perfect choice for the coach. This is a movie I cannot say enough about. I highly recommend this, and the use of the n-word is limited so this is OK for family viewing as well. Overall, a sports movie that once again shows the triumph of the human spirit and how everyone is equal when the gun goes off. I give this an A-.

Race bait

The correct name of the movie is "Race bait". A movie that should be about an athlete and his great achievements is made into muh discrimination and muh Nazis. Obviously the Hollywood propaganda machine has run out of ideas on "How can we twist historical events to make our left ideology printed on people's minds?" this leads to many bs scenes with no historical context (example: laws against minorities in Germany weren't implemented until after the Olympics and people talking about it for most of the movie about something that doesn't exist yet). What exactly wasn't it OK at the time? they even had Jews and homosexuals in the SA and SS, but let's make it a propaganda movie about politics instead of making it about what Jesse really was about: constant work to improve, perseverance, winning and becoming the best. The guy was better treated in Nazi Germany than in the US and is probably rolling in his grave at this bs movie.
