Storyline: Derek Vineyard is paroled after serving 3 years in prison for killing two thugs who tried to break into/steal his truck. Through his brother, Danny Vineyard's narration, we learn that before going to prison, Derek was a skinhead and the leader of a violent white supremacist gang that committed acts of racial crime throughout L.A. and his actions greatly influenced Danny. Reformed and fresh out of prison, Derek severs contact with the gang and becomes determined to keep Danny from going down the same violent path as he did.

Reviews
A true film making masterpiece.
A truly brilliant piece of film making, it is seen through the eyes of Danny who's brother, Derek got 3 years in prison for the murder of three black car jackers, Derek was a neo-Nazi skinhead, you see his time in prison in a series of flashback style shots, when Derek gets out of jail he is a changed man, he has left behind his racist past, but when he gets out of jail he finds that Danny has gone down the same evil, racist road that he had. It all happens over a 24 hour period as Derek tries desperately to save his brother from the same hate fuelled bigotry that consumed his life and got him jailed, you find that it was the friendship of a black inmate that made Derek change his views. He manages to change his brothers views but is it too late to protect Danny from his earlier mistakes? There are fantastic performances from both Norton and Furlong and I would find it almost impossible to not give this film 10 out of 10. The film is a compelling tribute to the unrelenting human spirit and its ability to overcome the intolerable. Like Danny did in the film i will end this review with a couple of quotes that i think fit well with this film: 'those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities', 'The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil but because of those who look on and do nothing.' PROMOTE THE PEACE.

It's not about racism
I left viewing this film quite confused. Sequences of rationally twisted proto-Nazi racism are intercut with scenes that seemingly justify this sort of thing with sympathy. There are sequences of 'inverted' racism, black kids turning on white. This confusion becomes unmitigated chaos when Norton's white/Nazi murderer looks to consolidate his 'identity' in the white sub-set of a jail's inmates; it all seems so simple until all the rules he'd assumed pall against the imperative of his own survival.

Emerging, he goes to be with the one unit that he can co-exist with despite the fluctuations in his identity and his own very human confusion. This film is about being a young man growing up in a normal middle class American family. It's told using racial tension as a rich source of metaphor for the different loves and hates that, whisked up by desire and ignorance, rise up and merge into an incomprehensible impetus which is called being a(n American) teenager.

Norton is admirable, giving three strong characterisations within the one nominal role. Edward Furlong is equally outstanding in a fine central cast as his doe-eyed but strong younger brother. Whoever sanctioned the final cut, the movie remains strong (and, perhaps, dangerously open to misinterpretation). It's not a date flick but it's a fine mainstream movie which always stays the right side of dogmatic and patronising. 7/10

Very contrived, badly-acted and unrealistic soapbox movie to let us know "Racism is bad!"
American History X is a very contrived and unrealistic soapbox movie against racism. The purpose of the movie is simple: beat viewers over the head with a simplistic message that they all already agree with in the first place! Namely, "Racism is bad!" Everyone already knows racism is bad, so a movie comprised of 2 hours worth of strung-together ridiculous contrivances that exists solely for the purpose to push the message "Racism is bad" is not exactly a work of art. Nor is it food for thought. This movie won't tell anyone anything that they don't *already know*, therefore the existence of the movie is pointless.

Edward Norton plays a hardcore Nazi skinhead. He *looks* the part, but as soon as he opens his mouth, any chance of him being believable in that role is utterly destroyed. Edward Norton talks like - and has the demeanour of - a computer geek. There is no way to reasonably be immersed in believing he is a hardcore Nazi skinhead. For this reason I'm going to have to say Edward Norton gives a terrible performance in this movie. *Good* actors can change their voice, demeanour, and the aura they give off. Edward Norton cannot. He uses the exact same voice, and has the exact same wimpy computer geek demeanour/aura in American History X as he does in every single movie role he ever does. It bewilders me why such a bad actor - with no range whatsoever - is so popular. It actually makes this movie be *unintentionally hilarious* to see such a buffed guy be so incredibly wimpy and non-threatening.

Edward Furlong plays his little brother. Furlong gives a good performance as always, however, he isn't given anything to work with. All his lines are very generic and bland.

Avery Brooks gives an okay performance as the school principal, but there is nothing special about it. He's exactly the same in this movie as he is as Sisko in Deep Space Nine, or the gangster in the movie The Big Hit. Actually it seems Avery Brooks has actually *dialed down* his intensity in American History X; an intensity he has in all those other roles but *not* in American History X. So I must conclude that Brooks' performance in American History X is worse than usual.

Edward Norton is supposed to be playing an extremely smart individual, yet his actions in this movie are anything but. He foolishly sets up a chain of events where if he had any intelligence at all, he would have foreseen that that chain of events would be sure to lead to his rape in prison. He also would easily have avoided prison in the first place if he had any intelligence. He also would have been able to prevent the bad ending his brother receives if he had any intelligence. Yet he sticks around the neighborhood like a moron at the end of the movie, which is what allows for his brother to be murdered.

The ending of the movie is ridiculous, and actually ends up *reinforcing* the (incorrect) idea that Norton's character's original beliefs in this movie are accurate. The movie exists to say "Racism is bad!" in big flashing NEON letters. However, the ending of this movie (perhaps inadvertently) completely destroys this message by implying that Norton's character was right to be a Nazi skinhead. The ending of the movie has a Black guy murdering Furlong's character for no reason. Furlong blew smoke in his face earlier in the movie, but that is not a reason to shoot someone dead over (maybe a beat down at the very most). It is not something someone would do in real life. Yet this movie (perhaps racistly) has a Black kid killing a White kid for no reason whatsoever, which lends (tragically!) undeserved credibility to idea that the Nazi beliefs are correct and Norton's character was wrong to abandon them. This movie can't even get it's own very basic message right.

0/10.

Brainwashing film
This film is example how liberals want to wash our brains with their so called racism issues, nothing in this film is near to reality, for exp Neo-Nazi guy gets in the jail and becomes a friend of a black man. I don't know but this reminds me of a film "Romper Stomper" it's the same awful propaganda film as this.

Good enough to merit watching
I've always been meaning to watch this film, after hearing so much about it. Now that I have, I see what people like about the film, but at the same time, find some issues with it. Nevertheless, I really like the film still.

It's easy to point out the good in the film: good performances, daring to handle a tough topic, even direction. So on and so forth. It's a mostly solid film. But it has its weaknesses too.

Here are some of the issues: The story pushes a little too hard for the things that happen in the film.

Spoilers follow Having the protagonist bond with the laundry guy was a little too convenient and a little too easy. Not that I don't believe it could happen, but based on the protagonist's character, it's asking a lot for the relationship have so little conflict. Also, the protagonist is supposed to be smart and a rallier of his peers. When he's in prison, he seems to lose his smarts, or they get put under his "ideals", which wasn't immediately convincing. His moral dilemma is also a tough sell, because we don't get to spend enough time with him getting confused.

End spoilers In that sense, the film asks the viewers to make some large leaps of faith and I wasn't entirely convinced. The other issue is the ending of the film. The film goes on too long and the end-drama doesn't seem necessary and even goes to the point of being a little over-the-top. A little more editing would've helped the ending be less melodramatic.

Nonethelss, it's good enough to merit watching. And I liked it despite my small frustrations. 8/10

the film of my life..
There are a lot to say about this film..I found all the words that expresses all my feelings about the world we are living in.I cried myself to sleep.everyday i'm seeing a lot of things that i have no words to explain even to myself "why"? Unfortunately we are living in a world there everybody obsessed about something but mostly the outside of our silly bodies. Most of us hates someone, some religion or a color without any reason.This great movie that tells us hate is a hunchback that keeps us away from the sun.We should throw our prejudice and take o second look to everything around! us.Then i believe there wont be any fears but just friendship. Like Edward says " Life is too short to be angry! all the time.."

Edward Norton delivers a staggering performance as an extremely intelligent white supremacist who realizes the wrongness of his views and must then try to prevent his younger brother form going down the same
American History X is one of the most powerful movies released in years. Not since Schindler's List has the subject of racism been so potently presented. The use of black and white cinematography to portray painful flashbacks is amazing, and the settings, while not necessarily pretty, fit the story flawlessly.

Derek Vineyard's (Edward Norton) transition from a white supremacy leader's protege to a gang leader himself to a changed man is shown mainly through a series of flashbacks to the time before he was sent to prison. The character development and story are amazingly well done, and this is largely a factor of the high quality of the acting. Edward Norton especially, but also Edward Furlong, Beverly D'Angelo, and all of the rest of the cast down to Avery Brooks as Bob Sweeney, the African American high school teacher who comes up with the term American History X, and Stacy Keach as the wonderfully hateable Cameron Alexander. Keach, by the way, would have been the perfect choice to play Francis Dolarhyde in Manhunter, the film the precedes The Silence of the Lambs, but oh well.

Unfortunately, despite the fact that American History X is one of the best films in years, it is horribly underrated. Much like Norton's last film, Primal Fear, which was also a great movie, this movie did not get nearly the recognition that it deserves.

A powerful Vengeful Masterpiece
Well better late than never. I Finally watched this movie and boy I was impressed by it. The pacing editing character development acting is top notch.Though it may seem bit violent but these only further polish the film. Norton is excellent he is truly most underrated actor and furlong too does excellent job as narrator.it has one of most powerful line which truly startled me its quote;"Has anything you've done made your life better?" this was enough for me to know the greatness of this movie. This is the most see movie for any people with powerful message you may think differently on seeing Nazi logo and judge it well I did that too I was dead wrong. Go check out the movie and prepared to be moved by its sheer brilliance.
